If you are unable to attend this hearing, please contact members of the Pierce County Council and urge them to SUPPORT Proposal 2013-35.   Proposals like 2013-35 are needed to help strengthen and protect the Second Amendment and Washington’s hunting heritage.  Council contact information is provided below:
