Alyssa Milano, Misha Collins, Billy Eichner, Mia Farrow, George Takei voiced support. Others, like James Woods, encouraged fellow NRA members to take their business elsewhere.
And thank YOU for disrespecting all your law-abiding now former clients, who work arduously to promote firearm safety. I used to use @Enterprise. I now welcome all fellow @NRA members to rethink their car rental arrangements. https://t.co/hgyyt2RFog— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) February 23, 2018

The NRA responds, calls companies boycott 'political and civic cowardice'.
“The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement,” the NRA said.
“Despite that, some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”
