blink-182 is pissed that FedEx is still doing business with the NRA, so they’ve launched a boycott

In the two weeks since the horrific school shooting in Parkland, Florida, a long list of companies have severed their relationships with the NRA. That includes Delta and United Airlines, Allied Van Lines, Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, Alamo and National car rental companies, Symantec, and Best Western.

One company that says it will maintain its ties is FedEx. Here’s how they responded to demands to get on board:

The NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in our alliances/association Marketing program whose members receive discounted rates for FedEx shipping. 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.

Translated, that means FedEx makes a ton of money shipping guns and munitions to NRA members. They’re not about to give up that market.

Blink-182 is most annoyed at that.

I’d really, really like to believe that the tide is turning against the NRA in the US, but we’ll see, won’t we?
