A major home security company is the latest company to end its relationship with the National Rifle Association.

SimpliSafe, which gives NRA members two months of free monitoring with a purchase of any new home security system, informed ThinkProgress of its decision in an email Friday morning.

“We have discontinued our existing relationship with the NRA,” wrote Cassie Kling, a SimpliSafe spokesperson. Kling did not immediate respond to followup questions asking what prompted the decision.

The company is the latest in a growing number of major corporations that announced this week they would be ending their relationship with the NRA. After ThinkProgress reported Tuesday a list of more than two dozen companies doing business with the gun lobby, the nation’s largest privately held bank, First National Bank of Omaha, said it would stop issuing the NRA Visa card. On Thursday, Enterprise Holdings, which operates three major car rental companies, said it would stop offering a discount to NRA members. And on Friday, security software company Symantec also cut ties.
