(Adds Lockton) Feb 26 (Reuters) - Several U.S. companies are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and gun manufacturers in the wake of a shooting that killed 17 at a Florida high school last week. The second-deadliest shooting at a U.S. public school has revived the long-running U.S. debate over gun rights and brought the NRA back under renewed scrutiny. Gun control activists have campaigned in recent days, with demands ranging from banning semi-automatic guns like the one used in the Florida shooting to asking public pension funds to sell gun stocks.
