And with the customers they lose from this, and the discounts on fuel that they will lose from Georgia....Well, Democrats will gladly pay more per seat.



Slowly, this country is becoming more and more divided due to political correctness.

"Divisive" is the part that pisses me off. If ANY group is divisive it's libiots.

Dems should have to pay triple fare.

I guess the "Antifa" cards will still be honored.

everything can be linked back to politics. if the gov't is involved, it's politics. duh. if you don't like "politically divisive", then go to North Korea. there is only one choice on the ballot.

Supportive or supporting should not be labeled as divisive.

The NRA supported Trump. They didn't do anything divisive except choose a candidate. Yes, it is for their own interests, but that's how we pick EVERYTHING in life.

I'll offer this. Many times I have discounts for something and neglect to use them. The store still gets my patronage...and a full price transaction on top of that. Now if that store did something squirrelly, like rip me off, or add a gender neutral bathroom, whatever discount I may or may not have used, will become moot.

I wonder how Delta's Board of Directors likes a CEO that cuts revenue, on purpose. Time will certainly tell as it always does.

Personally, I think it was a dumb move on the part of Delta and the Ga .gov. The NRA just wants to make sure that our constitutional right to bear arms is NOT infringed, which to me is a noble cause, and I am a life member of said organization. Yes, people commit crimes with firearms. But also, with almost every object imaginable. The root cause of violent people committing crimes with firearms is rarely addressed. Schools should have armed security based on the number of people there. I don't think just arming the teachers is a sound idea as most of them probably have little to no training. How many times do criminals go to a police station and try to shoot the place up? Crazies love soft targets. It seems our "elected" leaders fail to listen to reason, and all common sense left the building 100 years ago. That goes along with law enforcement agencies dropping the ball at every turn.

^^^^

Our elected officials think laws will stop gun violence. They say that as they have armed police patrolling the capital where the laws are made.
