Gun Grabbers are at it again...
Protect Our Gun Rights
Help Undo the Damage of I-594!
The billionaire gun banners funding the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR) are at it again!
They are beginning the summer with a MAJOR swanky fundraiser on June 4,
2015 in downtown Seattle! (As if Mike Bloomberg, Nick Hanauer, and the
other billionaires supporting taking your rights away didn't have enough
Of course, they are constantly pushing further into eroding your rights as a law-abiding gun owner.
The Billionaires that run WAGR want to raise MORE money for their so
called “Hold Them Accountable Fund," which should actually be called the
"Take Your Rights Away Fund."
What can YOU do to counter the billionaire gun banners?
“Universal background checks is about to become law in Oregon – and the gun lobby is furious and
lashing out. Within hours of a successful vote in the State Senate,
recall petitions were filed against three supporters – an aggressive
intimidation campaign orchestrated by the gun lobby. We can’t let this

the politicians who conspire with them accountable.”
Throughout the campaign on Initiative 594, they promised that if there

HOLD TRAINING IN OREGON! Gunsmiths in Spokane were denied armory
training because Glock was concerned that transfers of firearms in the
course of their training sessions would violate the provisions of I-594!
The Boy Scouts have cancelled firearms training. And the Firearms
Safety Training at the Washington Arms Collectors shows were cancelled
as well. And of course, museum exhibits have been a target of 594 as
WE NEED OUR OWN “Hold Them Accountable” fund to support the legislators
who introduced bills that would have repealed 594 or re-written
provisions so that law abiding citizens are no longer a target! Click here to contribute and make that happen!
For now, we are living under a law that is so bad, even some Federally
Licensed Firearms dealers are not providing background checks for
private sales BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO GUIDANCE FROM The Department of
We’ve worked hard in the Legislature this session to keep the extremists
at WAGR and their billionaire donors from moving forward with their
radical agenda. Not to mention, there are other bad gun laws in Olympia
that need to be fixed or repealed entirely.
While the legislative session mostly ended in a stalemate, it should be
considered a WIN since the anti-gun activists had such deep pockets on
