Society for Humanistic Judaism
Supports a National Boycott of Retailers Selling Assault Rifles and High Capacity Magazines
Please join the Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ) as we boycott retailers that are selling military-style assault rifles and high capacity magazines (defined as magazines with 10 or more bullets). These weapons were used in the horrific tragedies at Sandy Hook, a mall in Portland, Oregon, a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado, as well as other countless locations.
The SHJ does not believe the right to bear arms as embodied in the Second Amendment includes the right for citizens to own military-grade assault rifles and high capacity magazines.
While SHJ supports a ban on assault rifles and accessories such as large ammunition magazines and strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds, we call upon YOU to boycott retailers who are selling such weapons NOW.
Let's keep our communities safe!
Below is a list of retailers that are selling these weapons AND a list of retailers that have suspended their sales of such weapons. Let's boycott the "irresponsible" stores and applaud the "responsible" stores that have removed assault rifles and high capacity magazines from their online catalogues and stores.
By signing the below petition, you agree to boycott the retailers on the "irresponsible" list and instead shop at the stores on the "responsible" list.
Jay's Sporting Goods
Franks Great Outdoors
Jim's Sporting Goods
MC Sports (with outdoor centers)
RESPONSIBLE STORES (sporting good stores that do not sell such weapons)
Dick's Sporting Goods
Jax Mercantile in Colorado
Big 5 Sporting Goods
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add any stores in your communities to either the "irresponsible" or "responsible" list. In the subject line, write "boycott."
We need YOU to keep these lists accurate.
If there is a mistake and your store does NOT sell these weapons anymore, please contact the above email address for corrections.

Society for Humanistic Judaism
The Society for Humanistic Judaism offers a nontheistic secular alternative within Judaism.
Embracing a human-centered philosophy of life that combines the celebration of Jewish culture and identity with an adherence to humanistic values and ideas, the Society creates an inclusive, nurturing environment for families with children and empty nesters, pre-schoolers and teens, university students, young adults and seniors, single parents, intercultural families, and the GLBT community.
By organizing congregations and creating celebrations for Shabbat, Jewish holidays and life cycles, by providing a voice for Humanistic Jewish values, by publishing resources and educational materials, by offering adult and children's programs in communities and on campuses (see www.hujews.org), and by supporting the training of rabbis and leaders for Humanistic communities, the Society provides a meaningful Jewish alternative for cultural Jews.
