As we’ve noted here, parents of a student killed in the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting have sued the shooter’s parents and Lucky Gunner, the online ammunition retailer who sold the 17-year-old the ammunition he used.
As reported in the linked BuzzFeed article, the shooter checked a box on Lucky Gunner’s site indicated that he was at least 21 years old. But the mother of one of the murdered students isn’t happy with FedEx or American Express either.
“FedEx shipped the ammo to a guy’s house, without a signature. Why doesn’t FedEx have a policy that we have to verify signatures and ages for deliveries of ammunition?” asked [Rhonda] Hart.
FedEx did not respond to a request for comment.
Hart also thinks gift cards such as those used from American Express should not be able to be used to purchase ammunition.
“Why can you buy so much ammunition online with a burner credit card?” she said. “Why didn’t that trigger a red flag?”
American Express also did not respond to a request for comment for this story.
“Your policies are bad,” said Hart, addressing the companies involved. “Your profit seems more important than human lives.”
