"Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA", said First National Bank of Omaha spokesman Kevin Langin.

Earlier on Thursday, First National Bank said it would not renew a contract with the NRA in which it issued an NRA-branded Visa card, Reuters reported.

After fielding social media criticism over its relationship with the National Rifle Association, First National Bank of Omaha Thursday announced it's ending its relationship with the NRA.

The bank issues NRA-branded cards as part of its business that brands First National cards with organizations' logos, like Visa cards issued under the Scheels, Chrysler and Best Western brands.

The NRA didn't have an immediate comment when contacted by The Omaha World-Herald. Since then, survivors of the shooting have joined with students across the country to press for tougher gun laws.

A group that tracks the credit industry said the move could carry significant risks for First National Bank of Omaha.

The announcements came after the progressive news website ThinkProgress listed them as companies that support the NRA. It also noted Enterprise "offers members an unspecified discount".

A company spokesperson told Business Insider in an email on Thursday: "We ended the discount program, effective March 26". The channel is a forum for pro-gun conservatives like Dana Loesch, a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association.

Many major businesses market and sell their products and services to the NRA's 5 million members. A phone message left with that office was not immediately returned.
