On January 15, 2015 starting at 9 a.m. a coalition of local and national gun rights groups will host the first 2015 Legislative Rally against I-594 on the front steps at the Washington State Capitol Building in Olympia.
The grassroots event will include hundreds of supporters of the Second Amendment rights with speakers Adina Hicks (Executive Director, Protect Our Gun Rights), Rick Halle (National Coordinator, Gun Rights Coalition), Paige Biron (President, Pink Pistols of Seattle), Alan Gottlieb (Founder, Second Amendment Foundation), Joe Huffman (Boomershoot), Bill Burris (WAC Board member, WSLEFIA Spokesperson), Rep. Brian Blake, and others that will kick off a day sharing the concerns of Second Amendment supporters with legislators throughout the Capitol campus.
After the rally, attendees are encouraged to visit their individual legislators to educate them about the many flaws of I-594 and promote other firearms rights issues.
For help scheduling meeting with your legislator, please call Adina Hicks of POGR at (425) 351-4088.
Business casual or formal attire is the norm on the capitol campus when the legislature is in session. Our aim is for gun owners to make their voices heard and petition their government for redress of grievances, not to put on a sideshow for the media to easily twist.
Help will be provided at the rally to those unsure of who their legislator is and how best to meet with them. In the meantime you may locate your legislator by going to http://app.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder/.
You may also contact your representatives via the legislative hotline at 1-800-562-6000 to educate them on the facts.
We will have many other announcements to follow in the weeks to come.
To support the activities of Protect Our Gun Rights your contributing membership and support is necessary to continue our important work. Please help today!
