Stephen Colbert took to Twitter today to shred the NRA over the fact that rental car companies Hertz and Avis have ended their discount offers for members.
It's funny because it's true:
I’m surprised the NRA was affiliated with car rental companies at all, considering Hertz and Avis enforce tyrannical rules like "age restrictions" and "having a license."— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) February 27, 2018
Of course, Twitter was there for it:
“Speed limits and road rules are the first step to taking away our cars!”— Kavni (@Nebula_Arcanix) February 27, 2018
"What's next, are cops gonna pull me over and ask to see some kinda license or registration?"— Colin Childs (@Phoul) February 27, 2018
seriously I had to wait until I was 25 to rent a car, but hey, 18 is good for semi-automatic weapons.— KB (Random Thoughts) (@MyRandomness03) February 27, 2018
It is easier to get a gun than a falconers license in the gun toting U.S. of A.— ModernGoddess (@moderngoddess55) February 27, 2018

Please show me where transportation is a constitutionally protected right— old salt and smoke (@travisarnold1) February 27, 2018
Someone might want to explain that the founding fathers had no idea that a motorized vehicle would ever exist. You know, kind of like how they had no idea an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle would ever exist.
If they had, they may have written things differently.
The car company isn't the only one ending its ties with the NRA.
Many others are following suit:
