Alright WAHTF, it's time to fire up our keyboards and PUSH BACK!!!

The House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee will be holding a virtual public hearing (via Zoom) @ 1000 hours on 16 March (Tuesday).

Let's let the committee know how we feel!!!

A good number of you are familiar with how to sign in to a public hearing via Zoom, however instructions are below.  If you want to submit written testimony you can.  If you want to speak, there is a way to sign up for that too.  Or you can just sign up as attending the meeting and that you oppose ESSB 5038.  Remember:  NO ACTION IS TOO SMALL!!!  JUST DO SOMETHING!!!

From the Washington 2021 Legislative Action Group Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/walegislativeactiongroup


ESSB 5038 banning open carry is being heard by House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee on 3/16.
THIS IS THE ANTI-GUNNER’S SIGNATURE BILL
They will claim the majority of WA supports this bill--HELP US PROVE THEM WRONG
Let’s push back HARD and LOUD
This is the biggest anti-gun bill remaining this session
It doesn’t matter whether you open carry or not. Do it for those who can’t conceal carry.
Do it because it is another right they’re taking away-yours will be next in a coming session.
We need to SHOW UP BIG TIME. Let’s drown out the red-shirts and make our voices heard! Numbers matter!
The other side will absolutely claim that the majority of WA supports this bill. We HAVE TO PROVE THEM WRONG by signing in and signing up!

Click Here To Sign In

Select Committee=Civil Rights & Judiciary, Meetings = 3/16/2021; Click ESSB 5038, then choose: submit testimony, testify live, or position noted. You’ll be opposing (Under Position, select Con).
You’ll need to enter your contact information so they can determine which district you’re in (and which legislators should really care about your position) and that you are actually a WA resident.
PLEASE testify-all you have to do is read a statement on camera for 1 minute.
Or you can take a moment and draft brief comments and submit.
Or just make your position known for the record (CON).
If you want to leave a short testimony, here are some talking points:

   This bill will target women, minority, and marginalized communities by actively criminalizing innocents who get caught near protests or demonstrations.
   This bill will make the Mulford Act look archaic in how it targets individuals who are attempting to protect their families
   There is ZERO provision to protect Black & Brown small business owners who lease property for their endeavors
   There is ZERO protection for the residents of a home who are NOT on the lease or property deed
   There is ZERO protection for those who are gathered for a memorial, armed to protect against hate crimes, from being targeted by racist & misogynistic groups
   This bill is insidious gun control bigotry at its finest

For more, visit WA Civil Rights Association Page on 5038 -- scroll down to the section on ESSB 5038 for a summary of the bill and the latest talking points.

Let’s push back HARD and LOUD to show the legislators just how many of us there are!

Done. I put down some talking points.. didn't want to carbon copy.

This bill offers no extra safety to the public. Criminals carry firearms even when it is against the law.
This bill leaves disable people from being able to protect themselves.
This bill can leave women unprotected.
This bill limits the rights of people who can legally own firearms but doesn't have a concealed pistol license.
This bill limits the right to protect oneself if traveling through a unsafe area late at night, ie closing of a store and walking to you car.

Unfortunately, the west side retards, pass whatever they want anymore.
If their anti gun bills fail legislature, they vote and pass it, in November.
This is what they have done and will continue to do.
It is a plague, over there.

I looked to see if there was an easy way to download in Excel format the list of people who are not testifying but wanted their position noted.  I don't have time to count line-by-line, but it almost looks like the "cons" (our side) have a slight lead.

Let's keep it up WAHTF!!!
