UPDATE: Reuters confirmed FedEx is ending its program that gives shipping price discounts to NRA members! The program will end on November 4, 2018. FedEx told Reuters “the NRA just didn’t bring in enough business to merit its own deal. ” John Foley of Reuters observed, “It suggests the NRA no longer has the economic clout to inspire fear in the corporate world.”
For many years, FedEx has given discounts to National Rifle Association members for its mail/shipping services. Since the Parkland school shooting, however, FeEx has come under intense pressure from Americans to end their business relationship with the NRA.
Yesterday, FedEx issued a defiant statement indicating they will not be severing their benefits package with the NRA. “FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused,” the company acknowledged. “We therefore support restricting them to the military.” But, the company stated, “FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues.”
Please contact FedEx through one of the channels below and give them the following message (personalized to your liking):
I am furious about the statement you put out indicating that you will be continuing your business relationship with the NRA even though you acknowledge the tremendous threat posed by weak gun laws and assault weapons in this country. This is absolute cowardice and unacceptable. Your executive leadership knows full well that the NRA is a treasonous (Putin ties), violent, white supremacist organization that cares not a lick about the men, women and children dying and suffering because of their lobbying. Would you give discounts to KKK members? I can assure you of one thing. Until you break ties with the NRA permanently, you have lost my business altogether. Hello UPS & DHL!

Thank you for doing everything in your power to make it clear to America’s corporations that a treasonous, violent, racist organization like the NRA is no longer fit for polite company.
