Signature Gatherers Needed for I-594!! We are in the Final Countdown…

Looking for something worthwhile, and non-shopping related, to do on BLACK FRIDAY? Come gather signatures for I-594!  If you’d like to help make sure that anyone buying a gun in Washington State passes the same background check regardless of where they buy the gun and no matter whom they buy it from — join us. 
 We must gather 325,000 signatures by January 4, 2014. As of October 31st, we had over 275,000 signatures. We are steadily marching toward our goal but we could use your help. If we are successful, the legislature will consider the initiative in its 2014 session beginning in mid-January. If the Legislature fails to act, the initiative will go to the people in November 2014.
WHEN: Friday November 29
TIME: 8:00 am to 10:00 am
WHERE: Northgate Mall. Volunteers will gather at 8:00 at Panera between JC Penny and Best Buy
We will have petitions, clipboards, pens to distribute.
Please come prepared for the weather, whatever that may be.
