Tell the NRA to Cancel Its Upcoming Convention in Texas

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is planning a massive convention in Texas just days after the horrifying elementary school shooting which left at least 19 children and 2 adults dead in Uvalde, Texas. It’s beyond inappropriate for the NRA to be hosting former President Trump and other politicians to celebrate and organize a further erosion of public safety while families are still mourning the loss of their loved ones.

Tell the NRA and venue Houston First Corporation to cancel the upcoming Texas convention out of respect for the families lost to gun violence.

Why is this important?

There’s something deeply troubling when attack after attack on our schools, places of worship, and community institutions simply go on without any government response other than thoughts, prayers, and soundbites on cable tv.

While there are differences of opinion on the NRA and the exact current day interpretation of the Second Amendment, we should all be able to agree that it’s inappropriate for the largest gun lobbying organization in the world to host a celebratory convention in the very same state as this week’s mass elementary school shooting.

Tell the NRA and Houston First Corporation to cancel the convention.
