Gun Appreciation Day an outrage
In the days following the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy, the NRA offered no reasonable solutions for our national gun violence crisis. And now, a coalition of gun groups has organized a day to honor guns. The deaths of thousands of Americans from gun violence are no joke. NRA, Gun Appreciation Day is offensive and wrong, and we need to condemn it.
That’s why I signed a petition to Wayne LaPierre, National Rifle Association, that says, “Gun groups are planning to have a National Gun Appreciation Day on Jan. 19, the same weekend that Americans celebrate the life and service of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an American leader who was assassinated by a rifle’s bullet.
“This is an outrage and a slap in the face to Americans who value life and freedom.”
