Conservatives in the Georgia Senate have a message to Delta Air Lines: renew your relationship with the National Rifle Association or pay the price.
The State House had approved a tax allowance that could bring $ 40 million benefit to the airline, but members of the Senate vowed to fight the deal after Delta lowered its reduced tariffs Saturday for members of the NRA.

"Corporations can not attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back," says Cagle
Senator Rick Jaffares said the break was worth $ 40 million that he would direct the charges against him, "Delta's attack on the NRA and our 2nd amendment is unacceptable. "
I stand with the NRA and support our 2nd amendment rights. Delta Airlines is now seeking $ 40 million in taxes from GA legislation. I blame Delta for publicizing its attack on the NRA, and our second amendment is unacceptable. #StandWithJeffares https://t.co/YQ16VcGch2 pic.twitter.com/1x256htX9u
