Delta and United Airlines have joined a growing chorus of US companies distancing themselves from the National Rifle Association in the wake of the latest school massacre in Florida.

The major airlines tweeted they are each ending the discounted trips NRA members previously enjoyed and want the lobbying group to remove the airlines’ information from its website.

Petitions are circulating online targeting companies that offer discounts to NRA members on its website.

#BoycottNRA was the second most trending topic on Twitter on Friday.

On Saturday United and Delta were trending.

Members of the gun lobby have access to special offers from partner companies on its website, ranging from life insurance to wine clubs.

But American companies have been publicly severing ties to the powerful gun-lobbying group since the shooting on February 14 where 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz murdered 14 children and three school staffers in a brutal shooting spree with an AR-15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

For a third consecutive day, companies listed on the site have cut ties to the NRA as it aggressively resists calls for stricter gun control in the wake of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The rental car company Hertz tweeted on Friday that it has notified the NRA that it is ending the lobby’s discount program with Hertz.
