Since the Parkland, Florida, school shooting that left 17 people dead last month, more than a dozen companies have announced plans to cut ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA) during a public outcry to control weapons.

Delta Air Lines, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and United Airlines are among companies that have pulled away from the gun-rights group after the #BoycottNRA movement picked up momentum on Twitter. The NRA’s leader, Wayne LaPierre, has railed last week against “opportunists” who are exploiting the massacre “for political gain.” Yet several companies have openly announced they’re standing by the organization.
Here are the companies who haven’t severed ties with the gun-rights group:
The shipping company said in a statement that while it doesn’t agree with the organization’s views on assault rifles, it won’t eliminate its discount for NRA member.
The company currently offers members discounts from 18% to 26% on domestic and international shipping.
“The NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in our alliances/association Marketing program whose members receive discounted rates for FedEx shipping,” the company said. “FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs, or positions on issues.”
HotelPlanner CEO Tim Hentschel told FOX Business that despite the boycott he will continue to honor his contract with the NRA, which allows its members to book discounted group rates for hotel bookings.
“I know what it’s like to feel vulnerable and scared,” Hentschel said. “It’s not about me, it’s not about personal beliefs. It’s just about the right for businesses to honor contracts. I have a contract, and I will honor it, and I will stand by it.”
Amazon, Google Chromecast, Roku and YouTube
While only one of these companies – Roku – has published a statement regarding the boycott, all of them are still offering NRATV on their streaming apps.
A Roku spokesperson said the company has no plans to stop offering the service because it prides itself on being “an open platform for streaming and allow[ing] publishers to reach a TV audience.”
American Cellars Wine Club
The wine delivery company currently offers NRA members discounts on wine subscriptions, including a free one-year membership to the gun-rights group every time $500 is spent. The club has not issued a statement on whether it plans to discontinue its partnership.
While the credit card processing company did not release a statement, the company still offers its Shooting Sports Payments Package to NRA members, which guarantees them the lowest possible prices to retailers for credit-and-debit-card processing.
Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s
While neither Bass Pro nor Cabela’s has released an official statement, both stores are set to appear at the NRA’s national convention in May.
The outdoor retailer released a statement on its website saying, “No company in America is more dedicated to, and more supportive of, the goals of the National Rifle Association than MidwayUSA.”
Hyatt Regency (Dallas)
The hotel chain’s Dallas location is set to host the group’s annual convention in May and has yet to release any comments relating to boycott.
Omni’s Dallas location will also host events in May for the NRA’s national convention. The hotel group has refrained from publishing a reaction to the boycott.
The radio company, which airs a show from NRATV called “Cam & Co” on its conservative Patriot channel, has not commented on the boycott.
Bristol Motor Speedway
The Tennessee racetrack will continue to sponsor an August race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the "Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race."
"This has been a good long-standing partnership and we plan to continue," Bristol Motor Speedway said in a statement, according to USA Today.
