(Reuters) - Symantec Corp said on Friday it has stopped a program with the National Rifle Association that offered discounts for its LifeLock identity theft product.

Symantec is the latest of several companies to cut marketing ties with the gun advocacy group following last week’s Florida school shooting massacre, as social media users and gun safety activists intensify calls for a boycott.
