FedEx Backs Off Decision To Cut Off NRA, Announces It Will Keep Ties With Rifle Company

After being constantly pushed to cut ties with the National Rifle Association, FedEx announced on Monday that it will not cut ties despite the constant pressure to do so after a mass shooting at a Florida high school.

FedEx claimed that it will not cut ties with the NRA but that it still opposes civilian access to assault weapons.

“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,” the company said in a statement.

However, the company said it “does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views.”

“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 company said.

Many companies have already cut ties with the NRA, including Delta Airlines, National Car Rental and First National Bank of Omaha.

FedEx continues to receive criticism for its decision.
