Twitter is all a twitter about the latest move to boycott the NRA and it made me wonder how they plan to do that since the NRA isn't a company that sells anything to the public except perhaps magazines it sends its members. I see several companies that issue things like credit cards with an NRA emblem on them, won't anymore, and there are some discounts that are no longer offered but none of that really impacts the NRA because 99% of it's revenue comes from member dues. I doubt it has much effect on their members either because the discounts are peanuts and most people get the same discounts from other credit cards. It's more symbolic disassociation. So how can we punish the NRA?
Well for starters, don't sign up... Oh but that won't do much since pretty much all the folks who hate the NRA weren't members to begin with. You could also run around waving signs saying how despicable the NRA is... However about all that is likely to do is decrease you popularity with all the folks who don't agree with you, and you don't even know who they are, NRA members don't wear arm bands.
The NRA is not a huge evil corporation, they are your neighbors who give the NRA money because they think that will help preserve their gun rights. If you hate the NRA what you really hate is your gun owning neighbors.
