Nashville is a welcoming city, but we do not welcome blood money. 

To:
Butch Spyridon, Chief Information Officer, Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau
Mayor Karl Dean, Mayor of Nashville, TN
Please retract Nashville's invitation to host the NRA convention in 2015. Nashville has a reputation as a welcoming city, but we should not welcome blood money. The NRA aggressively promotes the sale and personal ownership of weapons designed only to murder people.
"Business as usual" is killing our children.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I want Nashville to be proud of their city....this will put a dark cloud over it and the new convention center.

      Our gun culture which glorifies shooting people at the drop of a hat is out of control. I hate the NRA and the way they are controlling the government in our nation.

      Because the NRA is opposed to sensible solutions to a serious problem, gun violence.

      The NRA seems to oppose all gun ownership restrictions regardless of the sense they make and despite the American people's overwhelming support for sensible limitations to help us and our children all avoid senseless violent attacks.

      i see the NRA as the bully in the schoolyard...intimidating and threatening...not caring about others' welfare or safety.
