Vote YES on I-591 - Vote NO on I-594
Updated August 30, 2014
...There are less than 70 days left to stop this nonsense...
UNIVERSAL HANDGUN REGISTRATION... as a gun owner, if that phrase does not reach out of history and grab you from behind then nothing will. It is only a part of what I-594 will do if not defeated. There are 100 days left to stop this nonsense.
The first thing you need to do is to make sure you vote along with your family and friends. If either you or they are not registered to vote, now is the time to get that fixed. The election is November 4th and you must be registered at least 29 days before the election. In Washington you can register on line, via mail, or in person. A good place to start is with the Kitsap County Auditor. Click on Elections and voting. The web site is here: http://www.kitsapgov.com/aud/default.htm.
The second thing to do is educate yourself about the details. I-594 is 18 pages of lies from the opening sentence to the last period. The lies have been swallowed whole and are being regurgitated on a daily basis by the media, the talking heads, and anti-gunners everywhere. Both out of state and in state billionaires are funding the process.
An outstanding two-page point by point I-594 claim rebuttal has been prepared by the NRA. You can download a copy here. A two page talking points summary is provided here. Both of these can be downloaded and printed or forwarded via e-mail.
I-591 serves to protect your firearms rights and I-594 takes your rights away. A one page summary is provided here.
Phil Shave, Editor of the Gun News from Washington Arms Collectors, has written an excellent article titled The Myths of I-594 and it can be found here. Also Phil has authored an editorial titled Why Should I Vote for I-591 and it can be found here. Both of these can also be downloaded and printed or forwarded via e-mail.
