Among those listed: The company that owns Enterprise, Alamo and National Car rental services, and FedEx.

Separately, vehicle rental company Enterprise said its three brands would end a discount program for NRA members.

Three top auto rental companies are ending their discount programs for National Rifle Association (NRA) members, becoming the latest business to cut ties with the gun group.

Twitter accounts for the three brands tweeted the statement in response to inquiries from users, some of whom identified themselves as customers, demanding it sever ties with the NRA.

Meanwhile, First National Bank of Omaha announced Thursday that it will not renew its deal with the NRA for the "official credit card of the NRA". ThinkProgress noted that First National Bank offered two NRA cards, each with a $40 bonus, and touted it as "enough to reimburse your one-year NRA membership!" "This change will be effective March 26".

That follows a move by First National Bank earlier Thursday to end a credit-card promotion with the gun-advocacy group. It also noted Enterprise "offers members an unspecified discount".

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch and Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the gun-advocacy group, doubled down on their defense of the lobby on Thursday, hours after Loesch argued the NRA's case at a CNN town hall event, during which she was confronted by student survivors and parents of those killed in the Parkland shooting. The bank is "not going to renew the contract" when it comes to co-branded NRA cards, Langin said.

Amazon did not immediately return requests for comment.

These business decisions show that the public is taking the gun issue seriously, and they see the NRA as the enemy.
