Action: Ask Sporting Goods Stores to STOP Selling Assault Rifles

Stand with kids who want to grow up peacefully and not be shot

ACTION:

Write sporting good companies and ask them to stop carrying assault-style rifles.

Script:

As capable adults, we have a moral obligation to protect kids. Training babies to hide in closets and be quiet isn’t a solution. Arming every underpaid, overworked teacher isn’t viable. It comes down to competent adults deciding whether young lives are more important than profit. I am writing to ask [company] to follow the moral, courageous lead of Dick’s Sporting Goods. Stop selling assault-style weapons. Raise the minimum age. Focus on giving 19 kids every day the future they deserve. Thank you.
