Petitioning Mayor Karl Dean
Mayor Karl Dean: Retract Nashville's invitation to host the NRA convention in 2015.
United StatesNashville is a welcoming city, but we do not welcome blood money.
Mayor Karl Dean, Mayor of Nashville, TN
Butch Spyridon, Chief Information Officer, Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau
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.
