FedEx: Don't Fire Your Drivers For Self-Defense!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

Shortly after 7:00 p.m. on December 17th, 2019 a FedEx driver was robbed at gunpoint while making a delivery on the 600 block of Unruh Avenue in the Lawndale section of Northeast Philadelphia.  According to news reports the FedEx driver was shot in the stomach and subsequently, in defense of his life, returned fire with his own firearm, mortally wounding his assailant.

Whereas, FedEx considers the safety of their drivers a top priority.

Whereas, delivering packages is an inherently dangerous activity.

Whereas, FedEx is unable to provide security for their drivers.

Whereas, had he been unarmed the driver in question would likely have been killed.

Whereas, the right to bear arms for the purpose of self-defense is a sacrosanct, inalienable right enumerated by Article 1 Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution and the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

We, the undersigned, demand that FedEx neither terminate nor reprimand the FedEx employee in question for defending himself with a firearm or establish policies that prohibit FedEx employees from exercising their God-given right to effective self-defense with a firearm.
