Attention Washington Second Amendment Supporters: You Need to Know Why It's Critical to Vote No on Initiative 594

Friday, October 3, 2014

 
ATTENTION WASHINGTON SECOND AMENDMENT SUPPORTERS! YOUR VOICE, YOUR VOTE, OUR FREEDOM — VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE 594

As you are aware, Initiative 594 is the latest, most comprehensive and well-funded attempt to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Washington State. Although proponents describe it as a “universal background check” measure, in reality, this 18 page initiative is a universal handgun registration scheme being pushed by a very wealthy group of anti-gun elitists. That is not hyperbole, it is fact.

Under I-594, virtually every time a handgun is transferred, the person receiving the handgun will have their name added to the government registration database being maintained by the state Department of Licensing. In other words, I-594 would greatly expand the government record of all lawfully transferred handguns in Washington, which would facilitate their future confiscation.

To ensure Second Amendment supporters in Washington are fully aware of the impact of I-594 and their need to vote against it, NRA-ILA has deployed two Campaign Field Representatives (CFRs--contact information below). Our CFRs need your help as they continue to recruit volunteers; attend events; distribute stickers, literature, door hangers, buttons, and yard signs; oversee phone banks; visit target households; and recruit supportive businesses to serve as Second Amendment Activist Centers and distribute our materials to their customers. All of these activities are being supplemented by our Election Volunteer Coordinators, who live in Washington State.

Our volunteer team needs your help on the ground! Contact your Washington Campaign Field Representative:
