Addendum to GOAL Post 2016-5

I didn't want to make more than my usual typography/spelling/formatting changes to the original of GOAL Post 2016-5 to incorporate this addendum, so here it is as a separate post, in it's entirety. The only modification is the bold typeface to emphasize the hearing information.

SUBJECT: GOAL Post 2016-5 Addendum
6 February 2016
House Bill 2325, by Rep. Dick Muri (R-28), a bill that would create an elective hunter education/firearms safety course in high schools, failed to pass out of the House Education Committee by yesterday’s policy committee cut-off.  The bill is essentially dead for this session.

In a late addition to next week’s schedule, Rep, Muri has arranged for a “courtesy hearing” on the bill by the House Education Committee in House Hearing Room “A,” John L. O’Brien Office Building at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, 11 February.  WDFW Hunter Ed officials will be there as will several state-certified hunter education instructors. 

If you can attend the hearing, please try to do so.  A hunter ed/firearm safety course in our high schools would go a long way to counter the anti-gun indoctrination and misinformation that fills classrooms today.  A strong showing of support will help get this bill a hearing in the next legislative session.
