Norton's anti-NRA (anti-2A) public announcement really ticks me off...

    Saw on cable news a couple days ago that Norton along with other companies came out with a PUBLIC stand against the NRA, and therefore against law-abiding gun ownership and the 2A. That really ticks me off. I have used their anti-virus software for years.

    Fortunately I have been trying out McAfee anti-virus on a new computer (came installed with first year free). It seems to work just as good as Norton. I still have Norton installed on old computer and therefore have access to the Norton User Forum where I am pleased to see this has also ticked off a LOT of other pro-NRA / pro-gun / pro-2A Norton users who are expressing their views and will be cancelling Norton.

    Please don't support companies who are bowing to uniformed, misinformed (don't want to be informed) political pressure from the left.

    Here are the recent ones...

    What companies have severed ties with the NRA?
    The list is long and continues to grow:

    • Delta Airlines
    • United Airlines
    • Enterprise Holdings, which is the parent company of Enterprise rent-a-car, Alamo and National
    • Symantec, a cybersecurity company
    • SimpliSafe, a home-monitoring company
    • First National Bank of Omaha, which issued the NRA Visa credit card
    • MetLife
    • Wyndam Hotel Group
    • Avis
    • Hertz
    • Best Western hotel group

    I'm supposed to be staying at a Wyndam this next Wed and Thursday. Going to cancel tomorrow morning and re-book with a Holiday Inn Express, but not before I tell them why.

    Any companies boycotting NRA will lose my business. They will lose more clients than they gain.

    You are absolutely right and I intend to make that clear - but hoping they put "it" in the computer system as to why.

    They probably will. And then book the room to another paying customer without batting an eyelid.

    Does anyone know if PC Matic is worth a crap, and if they have a stance on the 2nd amendment?

    I just turned off my automatic renewal for Norton, and set a calendar reminder to shift over before I lose coverage.
    **** the antis, and the PC corporate lapdogs that lick their boots, scorched earth, mother ****ers!

    Symantec/Norton been garbage for a number of years. McAfee is trash too. After nearly 30 years in this business, I've found that Eset is the better choice. Also, don't install any of their "suites". Just get the AV with antimalware and website protection.

    Keep in mind the most ANTI-NRA companies never had agreements with them in the first place.

    With all respect, both Norton and McAfee are top tier at antivirus protection. Staying one step ahead of the bad guys in this new cyber world is no small feat. If you currently use Norton, CANCEL! and let them know it’s because of their stupid decision to take a public stand against NRA and its members and therefore against 2!
