Celebrities Join FedEx Boycott Amid NRA Support - Read the Tweets

Celebrities have been speaking out on Twitter against the delivery service company FedEx after they have not broken ties with the National Rifle Association

After the tragic events at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, many companies announced they would no longer be offering discounts to NRA members.

If you don’t know, FedEx offers NRA members discounts on both domestic and international shipping. As of Saturday (February 24), they have yet to announce any change to this policy despite social media backlash.

Celebs including Julianne Moore, Julia Louis Dreyfus and more have taken to Twitter to say they will be using an alternate delivery service.

Companies that have severed ties with the NRA include Delta, United Airlines, Enterprise rental company, Best Western and Wyndham hotel chains, and more.

    I hate the NRA and think assault weapons should be made illegal for non military and civilian uses, however boycotting Fed X will hurt sales and possible then they will fire so many”working class” employees many of them minorities .must be a better way to goose up Fed X to divest the NRA business

  • Jason Bowen

    Once everyone is able to remove all the NRA sponsors and their members get no benefit they will finally no longer exist to protect the 2nd Amendment.

    There is no such thing as an assault weapon. If your talking about assault rifles those are banned.

  • Tellus

    except that the NRA provides services like home defense insurance the discounts amount to little for its subscriber count

  • Phil the Donahue

    Do you speak English? This makes no sense.

  • Phil the Donahue

    “the 19-year-old suspected shooter, used an AR-15 semi-automatic style weapon during the massacre, law enforcement officials told the Associated Press.” How is that not a weapon. I’m sorry your parents abused you as a child, you can get help.

  • KS_in_TP

    I despise bullies who call for companies to go down in flames because they don’t like some political stance. FUCK YOU, celebrities. People have to work for a living, and boycotting companies only hurts workers.

  • KS_in_TP

    Actually, I support 2A and I have never heard of these discounts. I doubt NRA members noticed or cared, to be honest.

  • Rhonda Schuck

    Why don’t the rest of us just boycott Hollywood! oh wait, I think many of us already are. Enjoy

  • Curt Noydb

    Why do you hate the NRA? Because someone tells you too?

  • Tellus

    Never said it wasnt a weapon I stated that there is no classification of an assault weapon. a semi automatic rifle is a rifle. Im sorry you have to rely on ad-hominems and strawmans because you cannot make coherent arguments

  • Tellus

    Simple other services besides the discounts provided are what make up the core attraction to the NRA. A movement to take discounts away will not sway anyone from joining the NRA. Which ultimately renders the previous argument useless.

  • Patti Elephanti

    Sure. That’s why Hollywood generates billions in revenue each year, because you aren’t there. sheesh.

  • Ixion

    If you can use an impliment or device to kill or hurt a human, that would be the very definition of the word assault.

    You can split hairs on definitions all you like but I think we know that the law will be written to reflect and restrict those weapons most efficiant at killing people that ordinary citizens can get their hands on.

  • Tellus

    Assault Weapon is used as a classification not as a descriptor. Your now moving the goal post. It was used largely in the classification of weapons banned in the assault weapons ban. To which I point out that there is no such classification because its terms are loosely and poorly defined to the point of subjectivity. By your argument a pistol is an assault weapon. Should we then ban all weapons and not allow the tool most use by rape survivors to defend themselves from rapists?

  • NetZero

    You’re right, Tellus. People use that term thinking it has been clearly defined, but it hasn’t. How about banning high-velocity rifles and high-capacity magazines? I think that’s a good compromise. Would lower the death toll.

  • BOB®

    You win “Stupidest Internet Comment” award, congrats.

  • Tellus

    High velocity rifles can be anything from a sports hunting rifle to an ar-15 competition shooting rifle. That again, is too loose a standard. What is high Velocity? A .22 rifle can be high velocity, and that is the smallest caliber. High Capacity magazines are what? 10/20/30 rounds what would you consider high capacity? These are not set standards. Rifles like the ar-15 come with 30 rounds these are not high capacity magazines. Pistols like the PMR-30 from keltec are designed to have a standard magazine size of 30 rounds.

    So again your using descriptors that are subjective to interpretation not actual standards. Its no different than saying Assault weapons. Now as for it would lower the death toll is a claim that requires evidence. Most mass shootings actually take place with pistols not rifles, and extended magazines are already in mass circulation rendering a ban mute. This is according to the Study “Mass Shootings in America: Moving Beyond Newtown.” which uses FBI statistics to break down many of the myths about mass shootings in circulation.

    Finally I will basically bring in the ultimate issue with a Utilitarian argument of gun control that you would have to debate. The United States is ultimately a country that was founded on Natural rights. Natural rights are rights that exist outside of a subjective standard and are an objective recognition of standards to human behavior. Another name for this is Human rights. When the United States was founded it expressed in its declaration that rights are inalienable (Natural). The founding fathers expressed that a government is not the beholder of your rights and solely exists through a social contract that exists to protect your natural rights. Among those rights is the Second Amendment which was created for the express purpose of rebelling against Tyranny both foreign and domestic.

    This concept came from the Right of Revolution(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_of_revolution) which states that we as citizens have a duty to revolt in the face of tyrannical government. In most recent times its used in cases like we saw in the Bundy ranch case which militias and armed citizens stood up for the property owners and pushed the Bureau of land management and FBI out of the vicinity. Or in 1946 at the battle of Athens, Tennessee in overthrowing a corrupt Sheriff (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Athens_(1946)#Response)

    Ultimately gun ownership is a property right in the US that is recognized as a human right. The founding fathers understanding this codified that right in the social contract that is the constitution so as to guarantee the right to revolution this can be seen in reading further writings by the founding fathers (https://www.buckeyefirearms.org/gun-quotations-founding-fathers) This brings forth the logic I would pose to anyone. Sorry for the long premise but basically Guns are a property right. Property rights are a natural right (human right). Free speech is a human right communists and fascists as despicable as their ideologies are do not give me or government authority to curtail your free speech. Similarly Religion is a human right and the actions of a cult leader committing mass homicide or suicide does not grant me or government authority to curtail your rights to freedom of religion. So then why do you make the special exception for the 2nd amendment rights and treat gun owners like second class citizens for the actions of a few bad actors?

    Now going back to Utilitarian arguments for the necessity of lets say an AR-15 at home. The average aggressor has a 85 percent chance of surviving when shot in the chest as long as the rounds do not impact the brain or heart. The average firefight rarely sees impacts to those kill areas. Most times it can take 4 – 6 shots per intruder to stop a him/her. There has been an increase of home invasions involving 2 or more intruders. Dynamic situations mean that 25 – 30 percent of the shots made on average will hit. How would someone deal with this with only a pistol or limited magazine? This is not hypothetical semi-auto rifles have been used several times to fend off multiple attackers. The LA riots are a perfect example. In which Koreans used semi-auto rifles with 30 round mags to defend themselves and their livelihood. With over 30 violent riots since 2010 a major increase then is it not useful to have such weapons where a pistol would not be sufficient?

    Your title makes sense? A dyslexic retarded liberal cuckhold

  • Billy Jack

    I despise bullies who have a stranglehold on America and support assault rifles over children’s lives. That’s greed, plain and simple. Good for these Americans – using the free market and their buying power. That’s the American way.

  • Billy Jack

    People who oppose the NRA are free thinkers. I wouldn’t mess with them and their intelligence if I were you.

    You know your potential customers.

    How come everytime celebrities boycott anything political I either don’t know who they are or they’re celebrities I can’t stand.

  • Andy Lily Stamper

    Dude – 5M NRA members Vs 320M non-members – NRA days are number!!!

  • OHJonesy

    That’s a big cup full of ignorance, Billy. The NRA is not supporting anything over children, in fact, it’s the Democrats that are refusing to take the steps to protect our kids, and using them as pawns in their attempt to disarm law-abiding citizens.

    The NRA simply supports the protection of a constitutionally guaranteed rights. You want to ban semi-auto rifles that look like, but do NOT work like, military weapons? Sure Billy, and what other rights can we just cross a line thru?

    How about that pesky 1st Amendment right to free speech? And that silly 4th Amendment right to be secure from warrantless searches? Who needs that! The 5th Amendment right due Due Process, bah! The 6th Amendment – who needs a fair & speedy trial, or the right to an attorney!

    Billy, those and more, are the rights our Founders sought to protect in the Bill of Rights. For you to think that any organization who fights to protect one or more of them, does so for greed, shows you need to get an education on your civil rights.

    There are far better ways to protect our children, than by punishing the law-abiding for the actions of criminals.

  • OHJonesy

    “I’m sorry your parents abused you as a child”

    Wow, you know, when you have to resort to insults right out of the chute, you prove you can’t debate with a shred of intelligence.

    Way to go, Phil. Way to miss the point as well.

  • OHJonesy

    Do you really believe that is a good thing? That we should fight and oppose any organization and their members who protect a Constitutionally protected right?

    Wake up Jason, before it’s too late.

    “Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it’s not an individual right or that it’s too much of a public safety hazard, don’t see the danger in the big picture. They’re courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don’t like.” — Alan M. Dershowitz

  • OHJonesy

    Wow, what a completely pile of nonsense. Your parents must be proud.

  • OHJonesy

    Dude – 100M gun owners in America, many of whom support the 2nd Amendment and the NRA, even if they don’t become paying members.

    Whose days are numbered?

    It was called “Schindler’s List”

    You remember how that turned out for the disarmed?

    I envy you rich kids–I had to read the book.

  • Cletus B Neckbeard

    Isn’t it hilarious how they try to distance themselves from being identified as being of the same ilk as the miscreant in Florida?

  • DDM

    NRA – relatively small group of people (5 million out of 330 million people in the U.S.) that raise a huge amount of money to lobby and pay politicians to get their agenda passed.

  • Curt Noydb

    Free Thinkers?? Bwahahahahaha. All you, and those like you , do is regurguitate the same idiotic talking points of Hillary, who gets them from Soros.. Free thinker, you are one of the sheep.

  • Tellus

    What makes you think that 5M NRA members are the only ones that own Ar-15s or guns for that matter? What makes you think that only NRA members support the 2nd amendment? But to your credit the NRA days are “Number”? Now if you mean NRA number from 1871 and ongoing I agree. Its a longer and better surviving organization than the collective total of your opinion on guns. By the way in voting you do not have to worry about 320 million you have to worry about 230 million and out of that 230 million the average turnout is a little under or over 50percent. Of that 50 percent there are massive amount of differing opinions on the second amendment and the NRA.

    Indeed it is hilarious Cletus, these pinheads are SO indoctrinated, they can’t muster even a simple debate point, so they resort straight-away to insults. Apparently the Kool Aid comes from the fountain of mental youth – their minds just don’t mature!

    No problem my friend, I know you are a staunch ally. I just had to inject my opinion, but my hat’s off to you!
