Yes we must make sure to call and email tomorrow as well as its still possible something could happen they have until the end of the day tomorrow to pull any kind of tricks to get this to go through at the last second
2:35 AM right now. I thought the title said that: BG checks in; WA is done for. Also, thank you fellow board members and who ever else wrote and called their representatives.

Background check bill apparently falls short in Olympia; initiative next?
Barring some miracle in Olympia Wednesday, the state’s so-called “universal background check” bill – House Bill 1588 – is dead and the specter is now rising that the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR) will mount an effort to put a gun control initiative on the ballot this fall.

I won't believe it until 5:00 PM PST this evening.
We need to keep active in all gun related matters, never let up! I really feel that one mistake we make is we don't educate the people enough. The anti-gunners get were they are by lying and omitting the truth. This background check sounds ok on the surface but it is what it contains is the poison. Incase this goes on the ballot we need to start now and do what we can to educate in everyway we can whether it is social media, letters to the paper, and any thing else we can do. We have been quiet to long. We need to come out against registration of law abiding owners being a threat to national security and everything else we can educate the people about. Out of all the publicity on background check do you ever hear about the internal registration of law abiding citizens, putting them in jeopardy to get robbed or publicly ridiculed, or other government's or terrorist getting a hold of the list. Educating doesn't stop at our representatives and congressman! We all should be pressing this national security threat to our congressman in DC now! We all know the government can't keep secrets and they could not keep a list of abiding gun owners secret either! That list should never be made as the last line of defense.
