MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — One of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivors campaigning for gun controls has suggested he plans a protest against FedEx.

Activist David Hogg tweeted Wednesday, "See you this summer," with a smiley face emoji, "1000 Ridgeway Loop Memphis, Tennessee."

The teenager is among the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who have helped lead the movement after the shooting there Feb. 14.

FedEx is a tenant of a building with the address but its headquarters is at another Memphis location.

News outlets report the company released a statement that did not mention Hogg but said its discount program is not for the National Rifle Association itself but for NRA members.

FedEx also repeated what it said earlier this year during a dispute over its program, including statements distancing itself from the NRA's political positions.

Hogg led a protest in May against Publix after their donations to Florida governor candidate Adam Putnam, a supporter of the National Rifle Association.
