Today we pass on a message from Lift Every Voice Oregon, an advocacy group promoting the safe use of and storage of guns in order to reduce if not eliminate gun violence.
From Lift Every Voice Oregon:
We thank all who were able to make contacts in support of HB 3223 and HB 3265. Your voice is truly making a difference. We will keep the pressure on.
Today, however, we have the opportunity to Lift Every Voice in favor of two very important bills that are moving through the legislature that will have a significant impact on gun safety and public health. They are SB 978-5 and HB 2013. A brief description of each follows:
Both of these bills will make a real difference in Oregon and we encourage you to e-mail, write or call your legislative leaders as well as the leadership of the House and Senate.
You can find a full roster of the legislature HERE. When you make your contacts, let them know you are part of the Lift Every Voice Oregon [and OR UU Voices for Justice] movement, as well as any other associations you may have.
This year there have been a record number of bills brought to the legislative session related to gun safety and public health. Your voice and all who are part of Lift Every Voice Oregon are truly making a difference. Let's all continue this vital work for the well being of our children and youth and all Oregonians and encourage others to join the campaign with their time and gifts.
Rev. W. J. Mark Knutson, Chair, Lift Every Voice Oregon
