    I know there is a thread about WA silencer laws, but now there is an opportunity to change one.

    I think this would be a good first fight to get into.

    Can someone make a "boiler plate" form letter that we can all print off (after putting down our name) and send off to the proper people?


    I'm not good at organizing stuff like this, but I hope we can organize to attack this.

    Looks like a reintroduction of Sen. Hargrove's bill from a few years ago. Hopefully this time it will make it through the legislature... though I doubt the queen will sign it. :(

    Still... I'll definitely help do what I can!! :thumbup:

    I just called now and voiced my support!

    It's easy and fast, please spread the word to everyone you can. :thumbup:

    You Can Do It!

    I just sent this letter to my 1st District Representative Mark Ericks, If anyone wants to use part of it, please go ahead just omit what doesn't apply to you!

    Lets get it done!

    I just realized this is a real bill actually in the House. I'll get letters out to my two district reps this weekend.

    Nice job on the letters posted above, BTW.

    Not much of a surprise really considering the make up of the state legislature. Still... it's a worthy effort! :(
