    The state of Georgia DEMANDED Delta airlines sign up with NRA or lose 40 million in tax breaks. This is only SLIGHTLY disturbing.
    Fuking NRA seems to own whole governments including the WH.

    can you point to where any NRA member has killed anyone, or committed any crime?

    All that can be know is that the NRA are terrorists and Trump is Hitler.

    Got it?

    It is offensive that government would use its influence to make an airline continue its relationship with an advocacy group. It also isn't explained why airlines should be exempt for a gasoline tax. My biggest objection is government picks winners and losers. Either their should be a gas tax and everyone pays or no tax and no one pays.

    Here's a better question: Why on earth would an airline have an affiliation with the NRA to begin with? It's not like it's symbiotic on ANY level.

    Can you point to where discontinuing a discount program requires prosecuting and convicting its recipients of committing a crime?

    I think that's the wrong focus: an airline could or could not have a relationship with anyone. The relevant questions are
    (1) why does government care if an airline ends its relationship with another group?
    (2) why would airlines not pay gas taxes but other consumers do?
    I'd suggest it's because government is complete wrapped up with favoritism and promoting unequal agendas and we should be bothered by that.

    Government = people.
    People = always (okay... usually always) work in their own best self-interest.

    That should unlock the mystery at least in part.

    It would be funny if people started shooting NRA members.

    Yes, your question implies that the justification of discontinuance of the discount program depends entirely on whether killing and/or a criminal conviction occurred.

    Clearly it was a business decision, whether wise or foolish isTBD.

    What if Democrats tried to force the airline to continue supporting Planned Parenthood? Surely Faux News
    and Reps would be frothing at the mouth about how Dems are corrupt, freedom of speech deniers, right?

    Fake news, huh? Your question was asked for no reason at all. That sounds like “pointless.”
