Kids are literally being gunned down at school and still, our government is doing nothing. This is largely because so many politicians get make or break donations from the National Rifle Association. Well, it turns out a number of corporations are also in business with the NRA, including FedEx, which offers a whopping 26% discount for NRA Business Alliance Members.
Sign on if you think FedEx should do the right thing and cut this deal immediately to show they do not support the death of children.
The NRA sees no need to for common gun sense control because the ease with which one can get a gun in this country gets them nice and wealthy, even though it also kills Americans. Not only this, but gun sales reliably spike after a mass shooting (defined as four or more victims). That means that the NRA actually has a financial incentive to not stop mass shootings.
We are consumers. We have power. Our voice matters to companies becuase ultimately, we keep them in business. Sign the petition to tell FedEx to reflect the views of most of their patrons by cutting ties with one of the most evil lobby groups in this country.
Update #12 years ago
FedEx just released a statement about the NRA and gun violence and it’s a total cop out. We need to keep the pressure up to let them know that we, their customers, believe they have a duty to society to make this change now.
