Tell FedEx: Stop Supporting the NRA

Ask FedEx to pull out of the NRA's Business Alliance

FedEx is a member of the National Rifle Association’s Business Alliance1, granting discounts up to 26% for NRA members2 and funding a reckless and irresponsible pro-gun agenda that puts all Americans at risk.

Tell FedEx to stop supporting the NRA.  Ask them, politely but firmly, to pull out of the NRA’s Business Alliance and cease supporting a reckless organization that puts the lives of Americans at risk in the name of corporate profits.

The National Rifle Association accepts millions of dollars from gun manufacturers every year to advance an extremist pro-gun agenda, including eliminating gun-free zones3 at schools4 and houses of worship5, gutting criminal background checks for gun sales6, and allowing open carrying7 of loaded guns in all public places.

While the NRA’s Washington lobbyists scheme to weaken gun laws and increase gun sales with scare tactics, they ignore the will of their own members, who overwhelmingly support8 stricter gun laws.

FedEx was #58 on the Fortune 500 list of companies in 2016, with revenues exceeding $50 billion. They have enormous economic power in America, and they can send a clear message to the NRA: American businesses don’t support your extreme agenda, and we won’t accept your blood money!
