Bank of America is re-examining its financial relationship with AR-15 manufacturers, Axois reported Saturday.


"We are joining other companies in our industry to examine what we can do to help end the tragedy of mass shootings, and an immediate step we’re taking is to engage the limited number of clients we have that manufacture assault weapons for non-military use to understand what they can contribute to this shared responsibility," the company said in a statement.

Axois noted it the review could result in "widespread financial squeeze on gun manufacturers."

Also on Saturday, Delta Airlines cut ties with the National Rifle Association as part of the growing #BoycottNRA movement.
