    Thursday Hearing: Two Bills About Guns on Campus
    Posted by: "elb1179" ethanbratt@gmail.com elb1179
    Date: Sat Feb 2, 2008 6:55 pm ((PST))

    The state senate committee on higher education will hold a hearing
    this Thursday, February 7th at 10am regarding two bills.

    The first is SB 6860, a major bill that, if passed, would allow
    licensed CCW on all state colleges and universities throughout
    Washington. It would prohibit them from making any rules that
    prohibit carry/possession by CPL holders.

    The second is its mirror image. SB 6841, being heard at the same time,
    would criminalize all firearm possession on state colleges and
    universities. Gross misdemeanor, lose your CPL for three years, and
    you have to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

    So we need as much support this Thursday as possible. Can any of you
    make it? Can you write your state senators?

    Check out http://www.campuscarrylegislation.com/ for more info on how
    to write them (plus some sample letters), details on the hearings, and
    more info on the bills themselves.

    Please forward this to anyone you know who is sympathetic to our cause.

    The testimony on the pertinent bills starts at the 16 minute mark.

    Excellent testimony against 6841 and for 6860. The video cut off before the chair finished up, so I have no idea if it moved forward or not.

    The testimony ends, the chair speaking, the video dies... It wasn't difficult to figure out where this was going.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Lets keep our students safe. In so many words. And in this state, that'll mean that I have to be more careful where I pack my pistola!
