Despite pressure from gun control advocates, FedEx makes a bold move in NRA boycott

What's going on? 

Companies including Delta Air Lines, Enterprise, and MetLife have severed business ties with the NRA that formerly gave NRA members discounts on certain offers.

But as other businesses jump ship, FedEx notably made a statement saying that it hasn't changed rates for customers based on their political beliefs and doesn't plan to start now. Members of the NRA can get shipping discounts through FedEx.

What did they say? 

"FedEx is a common carrier under Federal law and therefore does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views," the company said in a statement.

What else should I know? 

FedEx walked an interesting line in the statement by saying the company's own stance on gun control was that "assault rifles and large capacity magazines" should be restricted to military use; however, FedEx refused to cave to pressure and rescind the NRA member discount based on "their politics, beliefs or positions on the issues."
