NEW YORK – The Latest on the reaction by U.S. companies to the Florida school massacre (all times Eastern):
The insurance company Chubb Ltd. is discontinuing its partnership with the NRA which offered a policy tailored specifically to gun owners. The policy provided coverage for people involved in a gun-related incident or accident. The company announced that it would end participation in the Carry Guard insurance program Friday, along with a handful of other companies now distancing themselves from the NRA, but it said the decision to do so was made several months ago.
MetLife is joining other U.S. companies in severing ties to the National Rifle Association following a school massacre in Parkland, Florida. The insurer terminated discounts that had been offered to NRA members on the NRA website . Enterprise Holdings has already ended its discount program and First National Bank of Omaha won't renew its contract to issue an NRA-branded Visa credit card.
