A lot is happening

Dear Friends, GunsenseVT

If it seems like you’ve been hearing from us a lot, it’s because a lot is happening. We have a big opportunity to make real strides in gun violence prevention, and we can’t let up.

THE NEWS:

Universal Background Checks has made it through the Senate and is now in the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee is hearing testimony on Wednesday 3/14 and Thursday 3/15.

 

WHAT THIS BILL NEEDS TO PASS:

Your presence.

If you can commit even an hour or two to attending the House Judiciary Committee meeting to show your support, that would be very powerful.

Wednesday 3/14 — Testimony will begin at 9:00 and go through the afternoon with a break from 11:45-1:00
Thursday 3/15 — Testimony is scheduled for the morning only beginning at 9:00

You don’t need to speak. Simply being there is enough. Wear a GunSense button if you have one. If you don’t, we will have some available.

When you enter the State House, a page should be able to help you locate the meeting room. Rooms are also posted on a board in the main lobby.

On behalf of the leadership of GunSense, I hope we’ll see you there.
Clai Lasher-Sommers
Executive Director
