Two major airlines. A cybersecurity firm. Six car rental brands. A home security company. An Omaha bank. Companies have scrambled to cut ties with the National Rifle Association over the past couple of days, and the list continued to grow into the weekend.
Delta Air Lines (DAL) announced Saturday morning that it's ending discounted rates for NRA members. "We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website," the company said in a tweet.
United Airlines (UAL) followed a short time later, saying the company will no longer offer discounts on flights to the NRA annual meeting.
And TrueCar (TRUE), a car buying service, said late Friday that it would end its deal with the NRA as of February 28.
The companies were the latest to abandon partnerships with the NRA amid a renewed public debate over tightened gun laws following a school shooting in Florida last week that left 17 dead.
First National Bank of Omaha on Thursday pledged to stop issuing an NRA-branded Visa card. A bank spokesperson said "customer feedback" prompted a review of its partnership with the NRA, and it chose not to renew its current contract.
There was also a wave of car rental outfits. Enterprise Holdings, which runs the Enterprise, Alamo and National car rental groups, announced that it will end the discount deal it has with the NRA on March 26.
On Friday, car rental company Hertz (HTZ) said in a tweet that it's also ending its NRA rental car discount program.

I think the government wants us to lose our gun rights. That way as soon as they can they will have total control of us. Only reason we have any freedom in America is due to guns. There are ways to handle this, sometimes when I see how easy it is to get a gun I laugh. Just fix the laws.
Ryan... honestly... we have no gun rights in europe. Do you think we have no freedom? (aquisition is highly regulated)
Why do some americans think this way? That is utterly ridiculous. Are you planning a revolution and that's why you want guns? Why are you defending Anarchy?
It's so backwards that i don't even know what to say. How can people not see that? Civilians don't need guns. You are living in a developed country. You are safe. All the easy to get guns do is make it easy for people to kill each other everytime they get angry at something. It's not civilised. It's not the wild west anymore.
Do you really need to sacrifice a bunch of children to the slaughter every year just to keep your illusion that with your gun you can go take down the government? This is utter lunacy!
"Civilians don't need guns. You are living in a developed country. You are safe."
except for all those times in history when people needed guns to fight oppression
its infantile to assume that such a situation will never occur again
"Do you really need to sacrifice a bunch of children to the slaughter every year"
killing and death are a fact of reality and that will be the case whether guns are completely eradicated from society or not
"just to keep your illusion that with your gun you can go take down the government?"
this is how america as an independent country was formed to begin with... wtf are you talking about?
