Friday 3/2 Call to Action

Gun Safety Debate at The State Capitol
There was a large turnout at the Capitol yesterday to hear members of the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee debate two gun safety proposals sponsored by Representative Dave Pinto.
Unfortunately, after only about 15 minutes of discussions, the committee voted to table both bills indefinitely.
The bill HF 1669, that called for universal background checks was voted 9-7 along party lines to table the bill. Only Representative Keith Franke broke party ranks to vote no.
The other bill, HF 1605 that allows police or family member to temporarily remove guns from a person who may be a danger to others or themselves was tabled by a straight 10-6 party line vote.
Watch this moving speech by high school student, Eva Goldfarb.
If your state representative happens to be on this committee, be sure to call today and ask them about their votes.
