You gotta admit, they have em by the balls.....Obviously...because something as petty as this, packing such a high priced retaliatory punch, would be enough for any company to say bye bye.

I do not think $40 million is very much of Deltas yearly gross.

I do not think $40 million is very much of Deltas yearly gross.It's more the principle than the amount...but the amount isn't peanuts either...

Agreed.

My stance on the 2nd Amendment is pretty well documented around these parts but that move by Georgia lawmakers is bullshit...

What's "Conservative" about this move? Thought they hated government interference with business. Reeks of doing NRA lobbyist's bidding to me, and, yes, it's petty.

I have to think Delta being based in Georgia does a lot for their economy...lots of people in that state are employed by Delta...and this is how they are treated...for THIS?

I can't believe these legislators are being such douchebags to a company that has provided Georgia with a LOT...

The more salient point is why are airlines getting these tax breaks to begin with.Politicians are the last people who should be picking winners and losers in the business world.Set a reasonable business rate that everybody pays.Once you start passing out freebies, people get mighty PO'ed when the day comes that they have to open their wallets and start shelling out.

Delta says only 13 people ever bought tickets using the NRA discount. :D

Gee, I thought it was right out of the democrat play book - punish businesses who do not toe the line on their beliefs.

Oh well, they want to play in politics, they get what they deserve.

The NRA shouldn't be the catalyst for such a huge decision that effects any company the size of Delta. I own guns and am grateful having the freedom to enjoy them, but this is ridiculous.

I find it interesting for more than the NRA thing.......

Airlines are one of the most hated businesses in America. I personally hate them all with a passion.

I think it’s easy to beat up on them.......and I really don’t mind.

I rarely fly though

I used to fly all the time for work.
Actually earned a free FF trip in one month once.
Usually 4,5,6 time a month.

I would set foot in any airplane for any reason anymore.
Security is ridiculous- you want to prevent high jacking?
Arm ALL the passengers. :lol:

btw, all the planes high jacked on 9/11 were gun free zones.
What do you thing a single pistol would have done against all those box cutters.
