Car rental giant Hertz announced Friday it has joined the growing list of companies severing ties to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the wake of the Florida school massacre that took 17 lives, according to multiple reports.

The Hill tweeted out the news announcing that Hertz has joined the parade of companies breaking with the NRA.

Hertz said it would stop offering discounts to NRA members. Other car rental companies, including National, Enterprise and Alamo, announced earlier this week that they would no longer offer NRA discounts.

First National Bank of Omaha announced Thursday that it would not renew its contract to issue NRA-branded credit cards, The Washington Post reported.

Other companies on the list include the cyber security firm Symantec, Met Life and Life Lock Inc.

"We value all our customers but have decided to end our discount program with the NRA," Met Life told USA TODAY in a statement.

And Bloomberg News reported that some investors have dumped shares of gun companies.

Despite reaction from corporations — and even some lawmakers who have been strong allies — the NRA has remained aggressively defiant.

The NRA announced Friday said it still objects to raising the age limit for buying semi-automatic weapons to 21 from 18. President Donald Trump's favors raising the age.
