Petition to forbid support of the NRA at DU [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

We, the under rec'd, urge the good folks running this important site to make this a clear part of our culture and rules. Support of that awful organization cannot be allowed to stand.

If not now, when?
