Today a Thurston County judge approved some highly biased ballot language for I-1639; the newest billionaire-backed gun control initiative aimed directly at infringing on your ability to purchase, own, and protect yourself with a firearm — even in your own home.
You’ll likely see people as soon as this evening gathering signatures for the I-1639 ballot measure. These are paid operatives that get paid a lot of money to gather these signatures! Many of these folks are from out-of-state and will often lie about these initiatives simply to get signatures and get paid. I-1639 is a 30-page initiative and obviously most people will not read it before they’re suckered into signing.
The high-paid consultants and billionaires behind I-1639 are running an unethical scam and it’s our civic duty to alert the public to it.
Your Mission: Decline to Sign I-1639!
Tell the same to your friends and family. And where you see these signature gatherers, you should definitely exercise your First Amendment Rights and tell others not to sign this highly deceptive and controversial initiative. There is no law or court decision against doing this if you’re simply talking to people in a public place, ie., in a park, or outside the entrance to a store. You can find plenty of reasons to oppose this initiative in my first I-1639 alert posted on Monday.
If we get just a few hundred people out there at each of the locations debunking the paid operatives and warning people not to sign, we can actually shut them down! They need over 259,000 valid signatures from voters by July 6. If we can stop them, then this deceptive initiative will not be eligible to be on the ballot.
