Sounds like things are moving fast in Olympia.
Hopefully, only the "good" bills will move...

SUBJECT: GOAL Alert 2017-2, 24 January 2017
Another short-fused heads-up.This was sent to me by an activist in Oly, calling on gunnies who are available to attend a public hearing in Olympia on Thursday, 26 January in the House Education Committee.
The hearing is on HB 1174 (among other bills) requiring the Superintendent of Public Instruction to develop and offer an elective gun safety and/or hunter education course at the high school level.
Our children are being brainwashed to fear guns and stay away from them. These are the next generations’ anti-gun voters. Proper and safe firearms education will go along way to refuting the propaganda they hear on a nearly daily basis from “the establishment.”
Our youth are our future.And the future of the Second Amendment.
If you can attend, please do. If you can’t, please contact your legislators and ask them to support the bill.
Joe Waldron, Chairman, GOAL
