YETI Cuts Ties With the NRA

In a surprising move, the popular cooler making company YETI has announced it will be cutting ties with the National Rifle Association. 

From The NRA Foundation:

“Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why.  They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation.  That certainly isn't sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed.  They have declined to continue helping America's young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities.  These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs."

The move is even more bizarre when YETI has actively promoted activities involving guns such as duck hunting in a series known as "Dr. Duck."

 

Many sportsmen are utterly perplexed by the decision. 

YETI joins several other companies who have boycotted the NRA after massive anti-gun protests swept the nation in response to the Parkland shooting.
