NEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - Mass shootings happen in an instant and grab headlines. A business and investment shift away from the firearms industry is happening more subtly. FedEx, the U.S. shipping group, is ending a program that offers discounts for business members of the National Rifle Association, the company confirmed to Breakingviews.

A little utilized (less than a dozen times per year) program. At least FedEx is non-union and backs patriotism by employees... http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/01/27/f ... otest-iowa

From the original (Reuters) article above:
The $56 billion logistics company says the closure of its NRA discount program from Nov. 4 has no connection to that [Pittsburgh synagogue] incident or any other shooting. Rather, the NRA just didn’t bring in enough business to merit its own deal. It’s among dozens of organizations FedEx plans to move to new pricing programs, and the company has been notifying customers since early October.
