This morning Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman wrote of the newly announced pro-rights Initiative 591 and the recently formed and growing coalition of firearms rights organizations emerging in Washington, Protect Our Gun Rights (POGR).
Founded at an emergency meeting of the Washington Arms Collectors Board of Directors, POGR counts as member organizations WAC, the Gun Owners Action League of Washington, and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. CCRKBA and WAC have each committed a minimum of two hundred thousand dollars to the cause, with GOAL expected to join the effort in the near future.
POGR is reaching out to individuals and organizations around the state and expects to grow swiftly in response to both the threat to civil rights presented by I-594 and in support of protections afforded civil rights by I-591. Interested parties are urged to contact temporary liaison Thomas McKiddie of the CCRKBA at (425) 454-4911. Contact information will be updated ASAP.
In a momentary aside, WAC Webmaster Ray Carter observed “POGR was formed and continues to grow in response to I-594, sponsored by a clique of Seattle anti-gun elitists, and will oppose that initiative. POGR will instead support I-591 in support of preserving civil rights and a national standard for any necessary background checks.”
