Fellow state of Washington folks, please take the time to educate yourself about government overreach with regards to your 2nd Amendment rights and please use your vote to show the anti-gun lobby, whose funding comes almost entirely from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg who is not even a resident of our fine Evergreen State, that we truly are a pro-gun, nay, a pro-Bill of Rights state, and that we refuse to let them hinder the ability of good law abiding citizens to own and operate firearms according to their conscience.
Lest you have forgotten our Founding Father’s opinions on the unrestricted right of the people to bear arms I’ve included a few excerpts:
"Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one." Thomas Jefferson
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Paper, 334
"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good." George Washington
"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, 184-188
"To disarm the people…was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason, speech on June 14th, 1788
"The great object is, that every man be armed…Every one who is able may have a gun." Patrick Henry, speech on June 14th, 1788
"That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms…" Samuel Adams, Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20th, 1789
This bullshit better not be law when I get to Washington thats all I gotta say.
