The Orlando Weekly, "the Orlando area’s award-winning alternative media company" has joined Bloomberg.com and other media outlets in mentioning Gays Against Guns boycott of car rental company, Hertz; the shipping company, FedEx; and hotel conglomerate, Wyndham World-Wide because of the deep discounts they give to NRA members.
"Newly elected state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, says it's time to 'starve the beast' and called for a boycott of 'corporate enablers' like FedEx who offer incentives that help the NRA recruit members and hire lobbyists.
'After Pulse, after everything that happened, I can't believe the NRA would advocate we bring even more guns into the equation as a solution to gun violence,' he says. 'I think that's insane.'"
