How To Destroy Business Using Twitter

Enterprise Rent A Car provided an affiliation group discount to NRA members for car rentals. As you can see from the tweet below, that ends effective March 26th as they kowtow to an organized campaign from the gun prohibitionists.

In case you are wondering what are the Enterprise brands, they are Enterprise, Alamo, and National car rentals. I have used all three in the past. Any future rentals will be with a company that has a bit more spine.

If the Enterprise conglomerate is this wimpy in the face of the anti-gunners, imagine how well they'd stand behind you if you got into an accident at which you weren't at fault.

As a final aside, I find it illustrative that @mamabear64 uses a Stalinist style icon of Hillary as her avatar.

UPDATE: Well, you can add Hertz, Avis, and Budget to the list.



    There's also Dollar/Thrifty if you still want a traditional rental car. And don't forget to check for local rental options.

  2. I had not realized until this how concentrated the rental car industry was. How about some anti-trust action?
