GEORGIA: When Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle (R) received news that Delta Airlines was breaking ties with the NRA in wake of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, he decided to take action. Cagle took to Twitter to let Delta know how he felt and threatened to kill any tax legislation that would benefit them. Cagle tweeted,
“I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back”.
A letter was also attached which read,
“Cagle ~ In response to multiple corporations cutting ties with the NRA today, Casey Cagle – the leading conservative Republican for governor – said political posturing and discriminating against the viewpoints of law-abiding gun owners won’t solve the problem of mass shootings.
“I’m a lifelong member of the NRA and a strong supporter of law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights, ” Cagle said. “Like all Americans, I’m horrified by the mass shootings we’ve witnessed. If corporate America wants to make a positive difference on gun violence, it should donate a portion of its profits to mental health treatments and school safety initiatives.
“They should put their money where their mouth is instead of engaging in viewpoint discrimination against conservatives and law-abiding gun owners.
Cagle has earned an A+ rating from the NRA every year he has served in elected office and has previously been endorsed by the NRA”.

Finally, someone who has balls to stand up against a corporation who completely buckled under the pressure and is unnecessarily ending its relationship. Lieutenant Governor Cagle is a leader in Georgia, you’re lucky to have him in your state.
He is not going to back down from Delta’s discrimination against law-abiding gun owners and the NRA. Liberals, along with the fake news media are never going to rest until they take away all of our gun rights. Every time there is a mass shooting, they are hitting the ground before the bodies are cold with their bullsh*t! What do you think about Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle applying pressure to Delta? Leave a comment and let us know.
