However, not all companies partnered with the NRA have given in to public pressure. According to the NRA, that results when a candidate "Refused to answer the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights".

Though FedEx won't be severing ties with the NRA, it also said in the original release that it doesn't agree with the gun lobby's positions on firearm regulation.

Does this mean we need to arm the clergy in houses of worship; or sales associates in malls; or servers in restaurants; or doctors and nurses in hospitals?

No NRA member has committed mass murder - not at a school, a church or anywhere else. Other credit card companies did not respond to requests for comment.
