Capitol Campus map: http://www.des.wa.gov/SiteCollectionDocuments/campus-map.pdf o Carpool if you can; there is limited parking. o Sign-in and indicate that you SUPPORT I-591: Protect Our Gun Rights and you OPPOSE I-594. If you sign up to testify and are called, be brief, have your facts straight, and stay within your allotted time. Be professional. There should be pro-Second Amendment groups testifying; their carefully composed testimony will also represent us. Just being there will make a big difference. o Dress appropriately (i.e. no camo, no goofy T-shirts, etc.) o NO clapping, cheering, booing, hissing, catcalls, etc. NO SIGNS. They don't allow signs. • Call the legislative hotline: 1-800-562-6000. Let them know that you are respectfully asking that your representatives SUPPORT I-591: Protect Our Gun Rights and OPPOSE I-594 the anti-gun initiative. • Contact the Committees and respectfully ask them to SUPPORT I-591: Protect Our Gun Rights and OPPOSE I-594 the anti-gun initiative. Write as if you are testifying in-person: Be brief, have your facts straight, and be professional. It is best to use your own words, but your message might be something like: I am writing to respectfully ask that you SUPPORT I-591: Protect Our Gun Rights because it is very simple and will protect our Second Amendment rights. I am also writing to respectfully ask that you OPPOSE I-594 which is an unnecessary, over-reaching attack and burden on the rights and freedoms of law-abiding citizens; it will have no effect on criminals and do nothing to prevent the malevolent and evil acts of criminals.
