Petition update

Our Voice is Being Heard

Arlington, VA, United States

Jun 5, 2015 — With over 2,500 supporters, 80% of them from Arlington, YOU are making sure your voice is heard. You care about your community, and are taking time to voice an opinion about whether a gun shop should open in the former Curves location in Cherrydale. Thank you for your support!

Lots of activity in the last few days, with local and national attention to the petition:

A Facebook page was started:

ARLnow ran an article this week about the "petition battle:" http://www.arlnow.com/page/2/

The ARLnow article links to a National Rifle Association video, which among other things, calls us "neighborhood busybodies." If the NRA campaigns against you, your voice must be getting pretty loud!

Every day I talk to someone who has not heard about the gun shop, or the petition. Help us spread the word - email this update to a friend, post on social media, engage in civil discourse with your neighbors. We need our voice to be heard.


Keep fighting for people power!
