WHO IS ACT4LYONPARK?

Act4LyonPark is a group of concerned citizens living in Arlington, VA. We aim to relocate the gun store and reclaim our neighborhood as a Gun Store Free School Zone.


NOVA Armory is suing 64 people, saying that by protesting the store's opening, they participated in a "conspiracy to injure another in his trade or business." Link to the lawsuit. 


MOVIE SCREENING: 'Making A Killing'

As we confront the reality of a firearms dealership opening around the corner, we want to understand where our local conflict fits into the state and national dialogue about guns and gun distribution. On Sunday, 4/10 over 50 neighbors met for a free screening of the documentary: Making A Killing.
