The NRA is planning to hold their national convention in Dallas this May after the city of Dallas paid more than $400,000 thousand dollars
to rent the convention center for them.
I love the city of Dallas, it has always been where I call home and I was truly devastated after the Dallas shooting of police officers. It's hard to fathom the city is not only welcoming the NRA, but literally funding the event. Please sign my petition to tell Dallas to rescind their funding of this event.
The city gave them a $22,000 discount and the city's tourism bureau VisitDallas funded the other $387,000 of the rent price. This is disgusting. City Council Member Dwaine Caraway is serving as mayor pro tem and he has begged
the NRA not to come.
Let it be known, right after a mass shooting, NRA donations spike. That means the NRA has a strong financial incentive to not prevent mass shootings.
This can't go on. It's time to stand up to those who will do nothing to prevent such atrocities. I want the city of Dallas to do what's right and take back the funding so the NRA doesn't come to this great city. Sign on if you agree: the NRA is not welcome in Dallas.
