Target: David J. Bronczek, President of FedEx
Goal: Stop giving special discounts on shipping to members of the NRA, who are staunch gun control opponents.
FedEx is giving members of the NRA, who have been staunch gun control opponents, enormous discounts on their shipping needs this holiday season. NRA Alliance members get 26 percent off FedEx Express domestic shipping, 18 percent off FedEx Express international shipping, 24 percent off FedEx Ground shipping, and 20 percent off FedEx Office services.
The NRA has vehemently opposed any form of gun control, which would keep Americans safe. NRA members should not be rewarded for their actions with monetary discounts. From common sense measures like increased background checks and a ban on automatic assault weapons, the NRA has stood in the way of progress. This has enabled a slew of violent murderers to get their hands on weapons and perpetrate mass causalities in schools, movie theaters, and churches.
By FedEx offering the members of such an organization discounts, it is indirectly condoning the rhetoric and actions of that organization. Sign the petition and demand that FedEx remove itself from the NRA Alliance partnership and stop offering discounts to the organization.
Dear Mr. Bronczek,
Your company, FedEx, is a member of the NRA Business Alliance, which enables NRA members to be eligible for discounts of up to 26 percent on certain services. Such a partnership is a troubling one. The NRA has constantly stood in the way of gun control reform and common sense legislation. From background checks to a ban on automatic assault weapons, the NRA has used its lobbying power to oppose the safety of the American people.
After mass shootings at elementary schools, movie theaters, and churches, the organization you partner with has continued to refuse to work with Congress and protect Americans from gun violence. Your partnership with them is an indirect endorsement of this unwillingness to cooperate. I ask that you revoke your partnership with the NRA and stop offering discounts to its members.
[Your Name Here]
