In addition to being in violation of the “readability” portion of the law, added scrutiny has now revealed petitions being circulated by the billionaire-backed I-1639 gun control campaign appear to be in violation of the “full, true and correct” requirement of state law.
The official NO on I-1639 campaign and our allies at SAF and CCRKBA now believe that in its printed form on the back of each petition, I-1639 petitions do not meet the “full, true and correct” requirement as mandated by state law.
After further examining and scrutiny of printed text on an official I-1639 petition it is apparent that language designated to be changed or removed is not “lined out,” nor are proposed new statutory additions underlined as they appear in the version submitted to the state and published on the Secretary of State’s website.
If petitions being circulated are not “true and correct” it is agreed that we must challenge these petitions and have them legally invalidated.
Since the outset of I-1639, our campaign has raised questions about not just the unethical nature of the initiative and its backers, but also the unethical gamesmanship of the public policy process.
I-1639’s backers and political supporters of course will now attempt to claim these problems as inconsequential or an honest mistake; however, we believe the pattern of deception and gamesmanship is one that must be noted by the voters – and our courts.
If I-1639’s backers are willing to deceive the voters on the actual text of their initiative and how it changes the current law, what else are they willing to do?
This is yet another reason you don’t want to sign any initiatives being circulated at this time.
Our campaign highlighted just yesterday photographic evidence of paid I-1639 petition gatherers attempting to deceive the public. Don’t fall victim to these hucksters.
If you’ve noticed any changes or discrepancy in these initiative petitions, please let us know. You can also type us a message on the “VOLUNTEER” portion of our website.
Don’t give up the fight!
