Following the lead of students nationwide inspired by the activism of survivors of the Parkland massacre and citing "customer feedback", the First National Bank of Omaha stood up to the National Rifle Association yesterday, saying that it would not renew the contract for its NRA-branded Visa card.
Merczynski says the young people in America do not all agree with what is being shown on mainstream media, which is nearly exclusively pro gun control.
In fact, both Wayne LaPierre Jr., Executive VP of the National Rifle Association, as well as NRA spokesperson, Dana Loesch, co-opted one of #NeverAgain's phrases, "We Call BS", used so effectively by one of its courageous leaders, Emma Gonzalez, a senior at Douglas High School.
Insurer Chubb Ltd. said Friday it is ending participation in the NRA's gun-owner insurance program, but it provided notice three months ago. They love our Country and will do the right thing.

She bootstrapped her way through the sport in a way that paved the road for athletes like 26-year-old Diggins to follow. The majority of events involving area athletes are history but a handful of opportunities for Olympic memories.

"My friends and I have been playing video games our whole lives, and seen, of course, violent movies", Samuel Zeif told CNN, "but never have we ever felt driven or provoked by those action in those games to do something as terrible as this".
