Looks like a busy week for you guys in WA.
Hearing is at 1:30PM, so you want to arrive at least ~1 hour beforehand if possible.
An hour early, yeah right. People were out the door, the line went almost to the legislative building. I was not at the front of the line, but I heard a bunch of pro 594 people got preference and filled the room, as the doors were locked until130pm. Afterwords there was a crowd of pro 594 people in the hall waiting for the Representatives to leave. I suspect to give them more of an earful.
I guess 50/50 split for and against.
If you GO:
Show your colors: NRA Hat, Tie, WAC Membership Badge, etc. The other side had a fairly good plan of handing out stickers so it was "easy" to judge by a glance.
Take your written statement to the Governor, the Lt. Governor, the Attorney General, and your representatives in both houses.
If you DO NOT GO:
Go to state web sight, look up the bill and tell them what you think online.
HB 1561 (short barrel rifles) was heard today too. There were under 20 people there for that. All seemed to be Pro.
