Midway USA, Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas outdoor sporting goods chains all stated their continued resolve to support the NRA.
Nationally, there was a 20% reduction in firearm injuries during the convention. According to the document, the company has struck a deal with dozens of major gun manufacturers and dealers in an effort to woo the industry away from competitors with lower cost shipping.
The drop in injuries was only seen among men. Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, a Republican running for governor, lambasted corporations that cut ties with the NRA and said, "Corporations can not attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back".
"There is a rhetoric", he said, "that gun injuries stem from a lack of training and experience". NRA officials also didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
That might seem small in comparison to the millions of Americans who own guns.
Guns don't commit crimes on their own. In 2014, 461 people died from an accidental firearm discharge and 15,928 were injured, almost 2,000 of whom were children, the study authors note. It makes sense, he adds, "those with the greatest exposure to firearms take a break from handling loaded firearms in their homes and in other contexts, and fewer people are shot".

The Broncos come equipped with a solid defense, decent skill players and, of course, the allure of general manager John Elway. Zimmer said his injury is " degenerative " and that throws a "monkey wrench in the whole thing". "That's the big dilemma".
People are now also calling on companies such as Amazon, Google, and Apple to remove NRA streaming channels from their sites. "And this study doesn't account for the unintended discharges that didn't result in injury", he told Reuters Health in a telephone interview. "We concluded if these kids are courageous enough to organize and do what they're doing, we should be fearless enough to take this stand", CEO Edward Stack told CNN.
Plus, some convention attendees would be owners of shooting ranges and other venues where people use guns: If any of those places shut down during the meeting, Jena said, that could further limit firearm use.
But, researchers hypothesise that the decline they witnessed was due to the "brief period of gun abstinence during such conventions". Those customers include 86 firearms manufacturers and dealers, including almost every major company in the business, like Smith & Wesson, Colt, Glock, SIG Sauer, and the NRA itself.
"I think in the short run it's a news story and in the long run it doesn't materially affect FedEx", Miller said. Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, a Republican who has consistently received an "A" rating from the NRA, used the Parkland shooting to distance herself from Gov. John Kasich, who angered gun groups in the tragedy's aftermath when he implored President Donald Trump to enact "commonsense gun laws", including a ban on bump stocks that make semi-automatic weapons work like automatic ones. That's like saying even the best drivers in the world may still get in a vehicle accident. Why?
