CNN vs. NRA screen grabA conservative activist has a few suggestions for those who are concerned about companies distancing themselves from the NRA and its members.

Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research is known for confronting corporative executives about their left-wing activism at shareholder meetings through the Free Enterprise Project.

But Danhof says he's just one man and he can only attend so many meetings.

"A lot of folks don't realize the threshold to attend a shareholder meeting of a publicly traded company, and many of these corporations are publicly traded: Hertz, United, Met Life, Symantec," Danhof tells OneNewsNow.

"Most Americans, if they look in their retirement portfolio that's spread out through mutual fund holdings," he continues, "they're going to have shares in many of these major corporations."

Danhof, Justin (Nat'l Ctr for Public Policy Research)Danhof acknowledges he does not always get the results he hopes for but he says that should not dismay anyone from at least bringing issues to a company's attention.

"Fighting the good fight doesn't always result in a victory but it's still worth fighting," he explains. "There's dozens and dozens of interest groups on the left that send people to shareholder meetings, so your voice can help be a counter balance where oftentimes corporate executives and corporate boards would never hear that viewpoint."

Danhof says what happened in Parkland, Florida, was a tragedy, but another terrible event will happen in the future and corporations will once again take a stand where they should not.

He believes it follows a pattern. 

"Liberal politicians and the media take up the cause, then left-wing activist groups mobilize and pressure corporate America to join with the cause, and corporate America falls in line very quickly," he observes. "And then the support of corporate America is used by those liberal politicians and the liberal media elite to bolster and justify their initial cause."
