There Actually Are Brave Companies that Stand Up to the Bully LEFT … FedEx Is Not Cutting Ties to the NRA
IMAGINE THAT, A COMPANY THAT IS NOT BULLIED BY THE LEFT …
Yesterday as cowardly companies buckled to the bullying and threats of the LEFT and cut ties with the NRA, FEDEX did just the opposite. FEDEX stated that they were not cutting ties with the NRA. A question to the radical LEFT, Democrats and some of these misguided kids from Florida … exactly what did the NRA do? Do you really have any clue what the NRA stands for and what they do? Did they even bother to teach you about the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights? Obviously not. Sorry if I don’t take the advice of a teenager when it comes to a multi-billion dollar business.
FedEx put out a statement this afternoon saying they will not be cutting ties to the NRA:
FedEx Corporation’s positions on the issues of gun policy and safety differ from those of the National Rifle Association (NRA). FedEx opposes assault rifles being in the hands of civilians. While we strongly support the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own firearms subject to appropriate background checks, FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused. We therefore support restricting them to the military. Most important, FedEx believes urgent action is required at the local, state, and Federal level to protect schools and students from incidents such as the horrific tragedy in Florida on February 14th.
FedEx is a common carrier under Federal law and therefore does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views. The NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in our alliances/association Marketing program whose members receive discounted rates for FedEx shipping. 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.
The LEFT and the likes of David Hogg can rant all they want and attack businesses and attempt to extort them in the wake of the Parlkand shooting. However, you are not really helping, you appear to be just exploiting the tragedy. A note to the companies that buckled to the the pressure from the LEFT and their knee-jerk reactions to cut ties with the NRA, wait for the backlash. Newsflash, there are many more people who own guns and defend the Second Amendment than are members of the NRA. A whole lot more.
