A St. Paul company has followed the example of dozens of others across the U.S. in dropping their affiliation with the National Rifle Association.

Securian Financial Group, which employs around 2,600 workers at its St. Paul HQ, will stop offering its insurance as a benefit to NRA members.

In a statement, the company told GoMN: "After thoughtful review, we have decided to discontinue marketing our insurance products as a National Rifle Association benefit. 

"We have asked the NRA to remove our information from their website."

It follows similar steps taken by Minnesota's Starkey Hearing Technologies, which offered discounts on hearing aids to NRA members, and national companies including Delta, United, Hertz and Enterprise that offered deals through the NRA.

These companies are taking the measures following the backlash towards the NRA since a gunman armed with a legally-bought AR-15 rifle killed 16 students and a coach at a school in Parkland, Florida two weeks ago.

Securian's move came as Minnesota lawmakers met in the State Capitol on Thursday to discuss two bills that would have placed more controls on gun ownership in Minnesota.
