Dear fellow MoveOn member,
FedEx, along with other corporations, has partnership agreements with the NRA to provide service discounts to its members. This acts as a sign-up incentive for new subscribers. The NRA currently claims to have over 5 million members who currently pay $40 annually for that status.1
The NRA has lobbied lawmakers consistently and successfully against any meaningful restrictions on the sale of military-style assault weapons to civilians. They have put gun industry profits above people and principle. The millions of dollars they funnel into the campaigns of lawmakers to protect their interests ensure that commonsense gun legislation remains elusive.
It's time the NRA is put on notice that the time for change is here. They should not be given credibility through alliances with corporations such as FedEx.
