Companies cut ties with NRA in wake of Florida shooting

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

True Car is one of the latest businesses to cut ties with the National Rifle Association.

The NRA has been facing backlash for not backing stronger gun control laws after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Enterprise, Hertz, Avis and MetLife have also dropped their support, and insurance giant MetLife will no longer offer home and auto policy discounts for NRA members.

Delta and United airlines said Saturday they will no longer offer discounted fares to NRA members to attend their annual meetings, and both have asked the gun rights group to remove any references to their companies from the NRA website.
