No NRA In NHP Protest
September 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Long Islanders for Gun Safety, Together We Will Long Island, along with anti-gun violence groups and social justice activists will demand that The Inn at New Hyde Park cease renting their venue to, “The Nassau County Friends of the NRA.”
This “Friends of the NRA,” event raises money for the NRA gun lobby. Leaders of the protest charge that it will lead to more murders and suicides. As Assemblyman Charles Lavine stated prior to last year’s event, “Dollars raised at the event will be used to fund efforts in Washington and in state legislatures to oppose every bill addressing reasonable weapons control and to further pay for NRA owned politicians.” A firearm raffle is also a component of this NRA event. In a country with gun deaths toppling 100 a day, organizers say this is an outrage and that they will continue to stand up to the NRA and anyone who profits from them.
Who: Long Islanders for Gun Safety and Together We Will Long Island along with social justice organizations and activists and elected officials.
