On Thursday, First National Bank of Omaha Announced That It Would Not Renew Its Contract with the National Rifle Association to Issue the NRA Visa Card
NEW YORK – Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today applauded First National Bank of Omaha for announcing it would not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa card — a card that the bank has offered to NRA members for over a decade. The decision followed days of public pressure after the mass shooting at Majory Douglas Stoneman High School that killed 17 students and injured at least 14 others.
STATEMENT FROM SHANNON WATTS, FOUNDER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“Working with the NRA is bad for business. The school shooting in Parkland, Florida, has caused Americans across the country to question our current gun laws – and NRA’s role in putting us in danger. We applaud First National Bank of Omaha for listening to consumers and putting public safety ahead of profits. It’s up to every other corporation that works with the NRA to follow suit and cut dies with this dangerous organization.”
