Two national moving companies cut ties with NRA

Two national moving companies cut ties with NRA

Some of the companies were quick to react and announced to cut ties with the NRA. On the NRA website, Symantec offered a regularly priced $110 package for malware protection for only $48 to members.

A company representative told Business Insider in an email on Thursday: "We ended the discount program, effective March 26". The names of the companies that do business with the NRA began appearing on social media after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland. "Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA", said Kevin Langin, a spokesman for the Omaha, Nebraska-based bank. For example, the standard version of Norton Security would cost an NRA member $32.99 as opposed to the regular price of $69.99.

Enterprise Holdings, who also operate Alamo and National vehicle rentals, tweeted out saying that it will end its partnership in all three brands effective immediately on March 26.

Earlier Thursday, First National Bank said it would not renew a contract with the NRA in which it issued an NRA-branded Visa card, Reuters reported. The card was marketed as "the official credit card of the NRA". On Friday, the parent company announced those benefits would be ending. Chubb said it notified the NRA three months ago that it would end its participation in the program. Among the benefits are discounts on wine clubs, travel services and prescription drugs, which can be found at major pharmacies such as CVS, Walmart, Rite-Aid and Walgreen's.

The developments come about a week after the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, and amid increased calls for gun control, something the NRA rejects.
