NEW YORK MetLife is joining other U.S. companies in severing ties to the National Rifle Association following a school massacre in Parkland, Florida.

The insurer terminated discounts that had been offered to NRA members on the NRA website .

Rental car giant Enterprise has already ended its discount program and First National Bank of Omaha won't renew its contract to issue an NRA-branded Visa credit card.

An insurance company is discontinuing its partnership with the NRA which offered a policy tailored specifically to gun owners. The policy provided coverage for people involved in a gun-related incident or accident. The company announced that it would end participation in the Carry Guard insurance program Friday, along with a handful of other companies now distancing themselves from the NRA, but it said the decision to do so was made several months ago.
