They had every right to express their 1st amendment rights against the NRA. What you say, does not come without consequences.

OUCH!
That hurt badly!
Not me. I don't fly delta.

Hope Delta does bad because that means Georgia and Atlanta will suffer.

The "Left" (i.e., thinking people) don't "love" tax incentives, they are just floored that a state government would work to remove them from a major employer in their state over something so trivial as a discount for NRA members.

Such a petty and foolish move to alienate the 14th largest employer in your state over their decision to remove a discounted rate (which, I'm guessing, is around 5%, possibly 10% at most) for those using this discount.

A company can offer, or rescind, a discounted rate to any group they desire to. For a state government to intervene in this corporate decision is really going somewhere entirely new. Seems that conservatives are in love with socialism all of a sudden, seems odd.

Yes indeed. Perhaps the nitwit sponsor and some supporters of the legislation will benefit in the form of NRA contributions to their campaigns, but overall the state loses.

Ask Connecticut how it worked out for them when GE left for Boston.

Your comment is totally illogical.

How about you respond to the actual comment rather than misstating it, coming to an illogical conclusion and then making an extremely hasty generalization?

Legislating equality, has unintended consequences.
Not what my comment stated. Please review.

I will repeat. No, this is not what anyone is stating.

It is not about corporate welfare. It is about a fascist state government telling a private company what their policies have to be.

Why is this comment so very difficult to comprehend?

You have been listening to Wayne LaPierre too much. Most on the left are not socialists. Just like most on the right aren't fascists.
