Until Thursday, Enterprise Holdings, which operates Enterprise, Alamo, and National, had a partnership with the NRA to provide discounts to members of the gun lobby. A cached version of the site touted the card as "the official credit card of the NRA" and noted the benefits of membership.

The bank wouldn't disclose details about its relationship with the NRA, including for how long it's been established, what financial terms exist or the number of NRA-branded cardholders.

"Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA", the bank tweeted early this afternoon on its Twitter feed. Some users said they would move their business because it offered the branded Visa card. He wouldn't say when the contract expired. Progressive website ThinkProgress labeled the bank as a company that supports the NRA, saying it offers two NRA cards with a $40 bonus. Langin verified the posts were accurate. Though the NRA unsurprisingly objected to the gun control measures being considered by US Vice President Joe Biden's gun violence task force, Biden is pressing on with his plan to send the president gun control proposals by January 15.

The First National Bank of Omaha said Thursday it will not renew a contract with the National Rifle Association to issue its NRA-branded Visa credit card.

Be the first to know when news happens. Visa did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This story is developing.

The decision appeared to be a response to a backlash over a mass shooting that left 17 people dead at a school in Parkland, Florida. Both advertise discounts to NRA members.
