Pennsylvania Sheriff Blocks Business with Anti-NRA Companies

posted on April 23, 2018

In response to a move by companies to cut ties with NRA members, the sheriff of Butler County, Pa., has said his employees can no longer do state business with those companies.

In an order that went largely unreported in the media, Sheriff Mike Slupe early this month issued the order saying his staff could not use Enterprise, Hertz or Avis for rental cars, Delta Air Lines or United Airlines for flying, or hotels affiliated with the Wyndham Group when they are traveling for official reasons.

“These companies made the choice to boycott the NRA for whatever their reason(s) are, so, I am making the choice not to support them,” Slupe wrote in his April 3 order. The aforementioned companies were among others that have decided to punish law-abiding gun owners and the NRA for a crime that a deranged madman committed at a Florida high school in February.

He said his deputies and support staff are free to use whatever providers they want when they travel on leisure time.

The mandate has not led to any negative feedback, he told The Washington Examiner, indicating that his crew stands with him when it comes to assigning blame for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school shooting.

“I don't believe the NRA is responsible for any of these tragedies that have occurred, as a matter of fact, the NRA is more about education and safety than any group out there. So when these companies decided to boycott the NRA, for whatever their reasons, I have a problem with that,” he said in the Examiner’s report.
