Stop selling semiautomic weapons at Big 5 in Alameda!

    1. Petition by

      Alameda, CA

Big 5 in Alameda sells semi-automatic rifles such as the ATI .22 caliber semiautomatic rifle which, according to Big 5, is an "ideal training tool for law enforcement, military personnel or civilians." We don't need these dangerous weapons sold in our community which are similar to the one used in the Newtown, Conn massacre. We demand that Big 5 stop selling these high-power capacity, rapid fire weapons which can be quickly reloaded and threaten our children.

To:
Steven G. Miller, CEO, Big 5 sporting goods
Stop selling semiautomic weapons at Big 5 in Alameda!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      NO ONE, but NO ONE, except perhaps a police officer, needs a semi-automatic rifle. If the NRA supported single-shot hunting rifles only, I would have no quarrel with them. Other countries, when there is a massacre like the one in Newton, immediately pass laws restricting the ownership of powerful weapons. Why can't we?

      Semi-automatic rifles have caused needless deaths and injuries; they're not needed by the citizens of Alameda.

      No automatic weapons should be legal let alone displayed and sold in Big 5 or any store.
