Two Major Companies End Relationship With NRA

Two major companies have severed their corporate relationship with the National Rifle Association in the wake of the Florida high school shooting.

Enterprise Holdings Inc., which is the parent company of Enterprise, Alamo, and National Car Rental, said Thursday the discount program for NRA members would end, starting March 26.

The First National Bank of Omaha, the largest privately-owned bank in the nation, also said Thursday it will not renew a contract with the NRA for a branded Visa card.

"Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA," the bank wrote on its Twitter account. "As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card."

Both announcements come after social media users targeted companies with NRA associations under the hashtag #BoycottNRA after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which killed 17 people.
