endorsed Initiative 594 regarding
background checks on gun purchases. The League encourages LWV members

LWVWA has joined the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and encourages local leagues to join the alliance as well.
Update: Over 250,000 signatures have been delivered to the Secretary of State’s Office. 75,000 more to get on the ballot! We’re in the homestretch to get the petitions signed and returned to the I-594 campaign.
Additionally, LWVWA opposes Initiative 591 which prohibits additional background checks on gun purchases. Signatures for both measures are due to the state Legislature on January 3, 2014. If you have any questions or comments about LWVWA role you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
