Revoke the NRA’s tax exempt status

The NRA promotes gun violence which is neither charitable or socially responsible. Therefore they should not receive the benefits of a tax exempt organization.

Why is this important?

I am disturbed by the response of the NRA leadership in prioritizing political gains and profit over people's lives. By these actions the NRA is demonstrating that they are not eligible to continue as a tax exempt organization.

Reasons for signing

  • The NRA does not need tax exempt status, if they want to continue to buy politicians they can pay taxes and be held accountable in court.
  • According to https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-tege/eotopici03.pdf, 501(c)(4) Organizations must be primarily engaged in promoting common good and social welfare. While the NRA may have formerly fit this description, their recent actions have proven they are no longer operating with the good of the population of the USA in mind.
  • We want common sense gun legislation now! The National Rifle Association continues to thwart the majority of Americans’ demand for universal background checks, ban All assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and for Godsake disarm domestic abusers!
