A car pricing company is cutting ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA), joining a growing list of companies doing so following the Florida high school shooting.

TrueCar announced Friday on Twitter that it would end its car buying service relationship with the NRA on Feb. 28.

The partnership with TrueCar allowed NRA members to save an average of nearly $3,400 off retail price on new and used cars, according to the NRA’s website.

The company’s tweet follows similar announcements from other car rental and insurance companies — including Enterprise, Hertz, Alamo and MetLife — cutting off ties with the NRA.

The gun lobbying group has come under scrutiny amid calls for gun control following the Florida shooting earlier this month, with some companies responding to the pressure by distancing themselves from the organization.

The First National Bank of Omaha also ended its business relationship with the NRA, announcing earlier this week that it would end its contract to issue NRA-branded credit cards.

The outcry against the NRA comes a week after the school shooting at a Florida high school left 17 dead. Survivors of the shooting have focused much of their attention on GOP lawmakers who have received campaign contributions from the group.
