First National Bank of Omaha: No More NRA Visas

On February 22 the First National Bank of Omaha announced it is responding to the gun control outcry by refusing to renew its contract for NRA Visa Cards.

Think Progress reports that that bank has offered the NRA Visa Cards for over a decade. They are ending that relationship after a 48-hour campaign of “public pressure” against the bank.

On Thursday the bank tweeted:

According to Think Progress, First National Bank of Omaha is but “one of at least 22 corporations that the NRA says offer incentives to NRA members.” The bank is the first to respond to public criticism by ending its relationship with the NRA.

    What a stupid thing to do..The NRA doesn’t support crime or mass shootings.. Are we going to have anything good left in this country or sanity.. The gun debate is getting nowhere.. Schools should have had security measures long before now.. why aren’t students demanding to be safe instead of the left’s gun restriction do nothing talking points .. these kids are being exploited for the lefts agenda..

      First National Bank, where I have banked since I ,moved to Omaha will be notified that I am cancelling my FNB Visa credit card today. The employees are pleasant, well trained individuals that are wonderful to interact.
      Their are too many financial institutions in the world to be chained to any one of them. The NRA supports the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.
      I encourage clients of FNB to calmly and methodically cease to do business.
      If I were in the banking business I would advertise in all mediums that my bank would be offering loans at 1 % LOWER RATE FIRST NATIONAL BANK. A program to address every banking issue with a small incentive to TRANSFER YOUR BANKING BUSINESS to ‘XYZ Bank’ will result in increased business.

    If the NRA members stop doing business with that bank they might rethink their position.
