Fedex says NRA membership discounts stay here.


Fedex is to maintain a national rifle association member discount, even after a deadly school shooting in Florida, requires a boycott of landing on social media.
“In response to their politics, beliefs or issues, we have never set or changed prices for millions of customers around the world,” the express company said. Fedex says the NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in its alliance program. In the first public comment on the matter.
Since Sunday, the #BoycottFedEx theme tag has been included in more than 700 posts on Twitter, including more than 13,000 posts from Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school student David Hogg. Hogwarts – now with more than 330000 followers on twitter – and counterpart in stone, Douglas has received national attention, because on February 14, in school attack led to the gun law reform advocates, killing 17 students and teachers.
Fedex says its policy on firearms is different from the NRA. While the company says it supports the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own guns, it needs a proper background check to support the retention of assault rifles from civilians.
“Inherent danger”

The federal express said in a statement that the assault rifles and bulk magazines “were the inherent dangers to schools, workplaces and communities when these weapons were abused.” “So we support limiting them to the military.”
Shares in Memphis, tenn., rose less than 1 percent to close at $254.51 in New York. After the company issued a statement on the NRA, they did not change in the late trading.
FedEx is part of the NRA business alliance, according to the company and the NRA website, and offers discounts on FedEx Ground and FedEx Express, as well as FedEx Office services, through FedEx Advantage. NRA officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Companies such as delta and united continental are among the companies that have cut ties with the NRA through an online phone boycott. The owners of symantec, Lifelock and Simplisafe Inc. Car rental companies Hertz Global Holdings inc. and Avis Budget Group inc. and insurance company MetLife inc. all have close ties to the NRA. Companies such as apple and amazon pressed on social media on Monday to abandon the lobbying group’s streaming television channel.

However, NRA supporters are launching their own activities. Georgia’s deputy governor, Kathy kagell, threatened to kill tax legislation when he ran for governor on Monday, which would be good for delta unless it resumed relations with the NRA. A bill before the state assembly would exempt airlines from fuel sales taxes.
“Companies cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back,” Cagle wrote on twitter.
The delta said on Saturday that it would end a NRA contract at a discount to the group’s annual meeting. The airline also requested that its name be removed from the NRA conference website.
