Apparently not.
I don't like their boot licking but I'll take their NRA discount. Smile

But yet they have no trouble selling Assault knives, Assault bats, Assault swim suits, and assault Golf clubs

Way to have no idea what you are talking about

They even went the extra mile to make a political point about "assault weapons" rather than leave it to be assumed. Fuck 'em.

I read that they are not ending the NRA discount, which is nice of them, but I really don't think they need to take a position on civilian ownership of semi-automatic weapons. That pretty much tells me they support restricting my right to own one.

That statement is just awful. They want to play both sides.

Great that FedEx will take anyone's money and not end the discount program for the NRA, but their political stance was gratuitous. Why does a giant corporation feel the need to express a viewpoint on a controversial political issue like that? What purpose does it serve? It makes me want to ask about their corporate stance on abortion, illegal immigration, pot legalization, etc.

FedEx's opinion is their opinion, but it doesn't affect their business decisions whatsoever apparently, so what is y'all's beef? I mean really.

When they donate money to political causes, which side do you think gets it?

Whose opinion is it? The CEO? The Board? THe Marketing Department? The Employees?

Corporations don't have opinions. They have policies. If they are not articulating a policy, then what is the point of expressing the opinion thta will only piss off half of the population?

Did you actually read FedEx' statement? Here, let me help you. It says, in part:

quote:

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 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 position on the issues.

So don't give them your business. What can I tell you? They didn't bow to political pressure or alter their business practice, and that's what matters to me, at least in the here and now.

They can sell or not sell whatever they want. It's all the same to me. I won't buy even so much as a pack of chewing gum from them, and neither should you.


Never again.

We have a few Dicks Sporting Goods in the Sacramento Area... They are a big chain store that has a lot of MERCHANDISE and they specialize in nothing worthy to purchase. They are an over priced waste of time.

I won't buy anything there again!

We should start our own gun and sports store chain, put them up right by their stores, thinking a great name would be

I don't think many people care about the NRA discount as much as they care about the ridiculous pro gun control statement preceding it.

There's only so much I can do, but I did call Dick's main number and politely informed the person I spoke with why I would never give them my business. I also let them know I would tell others of the position they took today, and then I promptly started going through my contacts and letting people know. And maybe some of those I told will tell others and maybe the accumulative effect will hurt their bottom line if enough people do the same. I hope.
