Personally, I think this WAR on the NRA should be shelved, at least until we find out why... the FBI and the Broward cunty sheriffs dept. and Coral Springs police dept. ALL failed miserably in this case. This is NOT a FIREARM problem, this whole episode is caused by HUMAN failure to do the job. If even ONE agency had followed through, this tragedy may very well NOT have happened. You have to have a goat ? Take it out on the ones who DID NOT do their job......

NRA lashes out at boycott movement as United, Delta and other corporations cut ties   Selk Avi   The Washington Post

The National Rifle Association lashed out at corporations rushing to abandon it, as companies from United Airlines to Best Western have cut ties with the gun lobby group under pressure from a boycott movement following a Feb. 14 high school shooting.

Without context, twin announcements from Delta and United airlines on Saturday morning might look trivial: The end of flight discounts to the NRA’s annual convention, which few outside the gun rights organization likely knew existed before they became boycott targets.

But in abandoning the NRA, the airlines followed car rental giants Avis, Hertz and Enterprise, the Best Western hotel chain, the global insurance company MetLife, and more than a dozen other corporations that have severed affiliations with the gun group in the last two days.

In a statement released Saturday afternoon, the NRA accused companies of “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”
