Some customers have expressed concern in our continued use of FedEx. Unfortunately, Blick cannot violate our contract with FedEx putting us in an impossible position. Further, since UPS has the shipping contract for the NRA store, an irony that FedEx wryly notes, we are not sure that shifting carriers would be helpful should the boycott expand.

Finally, we note that “FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused. We therefore support restricting them to the military.” Therefore, FedEx has done what few companies have done which is to take a formal policy position against the NRA.

We hope you will provide Blick with some understanding in this matter as we are not the NRA and we have no control over either the NRA or FedEx policy. That said, if you put in your order notes at check out that you conscientiously object to the use of FedEx, we will make every effort to use a different shipper. Time-to-serve may be longer than what is quoted since the process for us is manual.
