MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota-based Starkey Hearing is joining a growing movement of companies cutting ties with the National Rifle Association.

The Eden Prairie company tweeted Saturday it would not renew its discount program with the NRA.

Following the deadly shooting at a Florida high school last week, several companies this week announced they would end partnerships with the NRA. Rental car companies Avis and Hertz, insurance company MetLife and airlines Delta and United are among the companies cutting ties.

In the wake of the Florida shooting that left 17 people dead, student activists have taken aim at the NRA and companies and politicians that have supported the organization.

Starkey is the nation’s largest hearing aid manufacturer.

  1. Corporate fascism won’t change the 2nd amendment either. Just makes the shooting look like a gimmick.

  2. Boycott starkey…bunch of spineless jellyfish…attracting people who support the 2 ammendment

  3. Starkey charges FOUR times what you should be paying so they can fill their pockets with billions and then use the extra to fund islamic terrorist organizations.

  4. It’s surprising that so many are saying that Assault style weapons have more value than our children’s lives! Thank you Starkey!
