Cut Ties with NRA and Protect the Lives of America’s Schoolchildren

Target: Jim Cabela, Chairman of Cabela’s

Goal: Stop hosting NRA-sponsored events, cut ties with the gun lobbying organization, and protect the lives of America’s schoolchildren.

Despite the deaths of 17 students and faculty members in February 2018’s horrific mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the NRA’s refusal to allow Congress to act on common-sense gun reform, sporting goods store Cabela’s continues to support the gun lobbying organization by hosting NRA-sponsored events. Cabela’s must follow the lead of other businesses and cut ties with the NRA immediately.

The NRA is one of the primary reasons as to why Congress is unable to pass common-sense gun laws. With millions of dollars, the organization is able to hold congressmen and women captive. Representatives who should be protecting the rights of citizens like those tragically killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are instead protecting the interests of gun lobbyists.

Cabela’s must stop hosting NRA-sponsored events in its stores and cut ties with the gun lobbying organization. By aligning itself with the NRA, Cabela’s has aligned itself with a group that would rather put their money and interests before the lives of America’s children. Sign the petition and demand that Cabela’s cut ties with the NRA.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Cabela,

Even after 17 students and faculty members were brutally murdered by a mass shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the NRA has refused to support common-sense gun legislation and reform. The organization has held representatives hostage and has prevented legislation from passing that could save thousands of American lives. Despite this, your organization continues to support NRA-sponsored events.

By partnering with the NRA, your business is supporting its actions and motives. Your business is supporting its decision to put its own interests above the lives of American children. I demand that you cut ties with the NRA immediately, support common-sense gun regulations, and protect our nation’s schoolchildren.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. “Buddies” are thicker than blood!

  2. What a stupid petition. The NRA teaches more gun safety than any entity on earth. Do you not wonder, even a little bit, why all the groups that want us to be unarmed don’t teach gun safety and even revile the one group that does?? Don’t you guys find that even a little bit odd?? There are some 350-600 million firearms in America so it the guns were a problem we’d absolutely know about it very quickly. Do you guys know how many millions of Americans own guns? Do you know that women and blacks are the fastest growing groups of gun owners? Do you care that if guns were to be banned that only the thugs and the government would own them?? Is that really what any of you want?

    I am a gun owner. But I do not want all
    Americans to own guns. The mentality ill. The domestic violence perpetrators. I want strong background checks and I want a ban on assault weapons. We do not need military style weapons for home safety.

    • Tina, if you are a gun owner then I would expect you to be slightly more familiar with firearms. Assault weapons are already banned for everybody except the government, law enforcement, the military and a very few of the Class three license-holders. The AR platform is the most popular rifle in America, it is not “military style”, there’s some twenty million of them in law abiding hands and yes, they are used for home protection…you might remember the church shooting that was stopped with a man wielding an AR 15 just recently.

  4. THAT SPINELESS PUNK IS A MONSTER. HE PAYS HUNTERS (I THINK IT’S $100)PER EVERY WOLF THAT IS KILLED, YOU CAN GOOGLE IT UNDER “CABELAS UNDER ATTACK”. IF THEY WEREN’T PAYING FOR THIS EVIL ACT, THEN WHY IS THEIR NAME THE ONLY ONE MENTIONED ON THERE? I DID RECEIVE A PETITION FROM “DEFENDER’S OF WILDLIFE” AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP THESE IDIOTS FROM PAYING FOR THIS EVIL DEED.

  5. THIS GUY (CABELAS) REALLY ENJOYS VIOLENCE AGAINST ANYTHING AND ANYONE THAT HE KNOWS IS DEFENSELESS.
