FedEx evidently is sticking with the NRA, at least for now, in terms of offering its members discounts on shipping. That’s good, and I hope they continue to do so.
On the other hand, they released a statement that FedEx opposes the NRA’s position on “assault rifles” and that they think they should be limited to the military. (It’s worth pointing out that true assault rifles are indeed mostly limited to the military, police, licensed dealers, and those who jumped through NFA hoops to open them.)
Anyone remember when major companies tried to avoid taking sides in major political issues? Those were the days.
Frankly, I don’t think FedEx as a company should hold or mention political positions unrelated to its business of moving packages around.
So long as the contents of the packages they transport are legal and shipped in accordance with the relevant regulations, they should deliver the without issue or comment and stay out of unrelated political issues entirely.
