A multiple number of companies have already cut ties with the National Rifle Association. On Friday, insurance company Chubb joined that number when it announced its intention to stop underwriting NRA-branded insurance for gun owners.
According to a Chubb spokesperson, the company had been battling the decision for about three months before making the public announcement on Friday.
“Three months ago, Chubb provided notice of our intent to discontinue participation in the NRA Carry Guard insurance program under the terms of our contract,” the company said Friday, according to Insurance Journal.
Chubb’s Carry Guard program covers gun owners and their families facing legal costs related to the usage of any firearms, including for self-defense.
Chubb joined six other companies – Insurance company MetLife, as well as car rental companies National, Enterprise, Alamo, and Hertz – in cutting ties with the NRA.
The first company to announce their departure was First National Bank of Omaha who cute ties with the NRA earlier this week.
The NRA has been hit with major backlash since the tragic shooting in a Florida high school last week.
