Petition Against NRA Convention in Nashville

You may have heard about a petition directed at Nashville Mayor KarlDean to withdraw the "invitation" for the NRA Convention to come to Nashville's government-owned Convention Center. Yet news accounts seem to never mention (1) the name of the woman who started the petition nor (2) the URL where you can find the petition on-line.

The woman's name is Linda McFadyen-Ketchum. And you can find the petition at:

I've signed the petition, and hope you will, too.

Petitioning Mayor Karl Dean
Mayor Karl Dean: Retract Nashville's invitation to host the NRA convention in 2015.

Petition by

Linda McFadyen-Ketchum

United States

Nashville 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.
Thank you.

Good riddance!  I'll sign this too!
