The Fort Worth Stockyards is home to many traditions that make it a trademark for Texas pride and historical enthusiasm. It has stood the test of time, survived many disasters both natural and man-made.
For over twenty years one tradition has stood unopposed until today, the legendary Cowtown Shootout featuring three individuals, a law man, and two criminals, both armed with the iconic weapons of the western age; the revolver. During an extensive and immersive dialogue that attracts both regulars and newcomers alike, the two sides simulate an almost-real experience that explodes into a shootout that ends in the demise of two outlaws.
People, in light of recent and tragic events, have proposed we cancel this tradition in the name of ''sensitivity'', and as a resident of the great state of Texas, I am aware that I sign this petition in order to preserve this tradition and keep the historical district of the Stockyards protected as it should be.
The Keep Stockyards Shootout Tradition petition to The Community of Fort Worth was written by Anthony Bennett and is in the category Culture at GoPetition.
