Anyone listening / viewing the State of the Union address last evening was able to see bi-partisanship in action. President Obama included many whose lives were taken or drastically changed due to gun violence. President Obama challenged Congress to bring Gun Legislation to a “Vote” ( for or against gun legislation change).President Obama gave reference to several in attendance
Former Congresswoman Gabby Gifford
Familes of Sandy Hook Elementary Students and Faculty
Family Members of most recent victim of violence in Chicago
We support this challenge…we seek our Legislators (local,state,federal) to take a stand in honor of these individuals as well as every citizen !
we recently organized a “grass roots” campaign to address the violence in our Nation, State of Washington and local communities. we are NOT against gun ownership ! we are advocating for changes to the current legislation dealing with psychiatric treatment, background checks,assault weapons & multi clip ammunitions. we have organized a panel of “community leaders” in various areas ( School,Church,Police,Public Health & Dispute Resolution) to discuss this topic at a community meeting –FEBRUARY 21ST-7PM. LACEY COMMUNITY CENTER.
..we will be meeting with our Legislators following this meeting..this is NOT a debate or venue for disruption..we advocate non-violence and open dialogue.
