    Just looked through the garbage can at work (retirement center in Vancouver). Found several "YES on 594" cards in the can.
    They ask to call the 1-800-562-6000 Hotline.
    Donate $10 to "help protect our communities".
    And sign up at their website for updates: Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility

    Also full of lies:
    "Major contributors" are listed as:
    Nicola Hanauer
    Jon Shirley
    Lenore Hanauer
    Ann Wyckoff

    Do they have a postcard to send back? If they include petitions and envelopes, send back crossed out petitions.

    Might as well help them utilize their resources both financial and/or volunteer's time for sending unwanted mail.

    No, no postcards. Just the alert mail so far.

    There were copies of the petition included in the Seattle Times this weekend too. I thought my sister in law had gotten one and was trying to get grandma to sign it, but she said it was tucked in with the adds in the paper. Seems a little sketchy to me. I wonder if the paper is supporting the initiative, or if they are paid to include it like any other ads?

    We can play the same game. Obtain some I-591 petitions and post them on the bulletin at your work.

    Trying to post the back side but the system is telling me I'm over my limit so I guess It'll have to wait.

    Return to sender, then tape them to something heavy.

    They are sent "Presort, Standard U.S. Postage" so I don't think (but don't know for sure) that return postage is paid on that type of mailing.

    I have gone to the website and put my info in several times and I have not received any petitions in the mail. How can I sign this thing??? I want multiple copies so I can take them to my local range etc. and I cant even get one. Should be downloadable if at all possible.

    I remember some years ago, Di-Fi somehow had me listed as a supporter, or donor or something, so I kept getting mailings asking for money (I was a CA resident at the time) and it always came with a pre-paid envelope. After a while I used to try to find heavy things to tape the envelope to, and send it back. I sent her several cinder blocks which I painted "BUILD THE WALL" on (referring to the border), and the apex of this was an axle tube from a 1989 jeep cherokee.

    I continued getting the mailings, but for some reason they were no longer postage paid.

    I like the creativity. With those envelopes, a nice sharpie on the bar code makes it so they can't associate it with who sent it. Better chance they'd keep paying the shipping on those gifts.

    Hi guys, new member here. Glad to see you guys are up in arms over i-594. I put some effort into breaking down the major lies, distortions, and undue hardships this horrible piece of legislation is set to create. You can view the video here
    [video=youtube;dbbKW0o8Prk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbbKW0o8Prk[/video]

    I highly encourage you to share it with your friends and families so that you can help spread the awareness. Hope I'm not walking over anyone in this post, but being a Washington resident, I'm extremely passionate about this subject and want to do as much as I can to stop unconstitutional laws being passed. Thanks.

    That is freaking awesome. I'd mail her lead, but I'd rather keep it for casting bullets :p.
