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.
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:
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.
p.s.–if you can come to Montpelier for an hour, please let us know by RSVPing here.
