Thanks for the plug Lynn
In my opinion I-594 did not pass in Washington simply because Bloomberg and his billionaire buddies spent over $10 Million. Nor did I-594 pass because the NRA only put up a token resistance. I-594 passed because the majority of voting eligible gun owners stayed home, melted into their couches, either because they didn't care or didn't want to get involved.
When, not if, Bloomberg gets a ballot measure on the Arizona 2016 ballot, whether we win or lose will depend on whether or not Arizona's over 1 million gun owners get engaged. Bloomberg is banking on gun owner apathy.
It's already happening in Nevada. Bloomberg's minions got the signatures needed to get a gun owner registration (that's what this really is) measure on the 2016 Nevada ballot. NVFAC, the NRA state affiliate battling Bloomberg has already discovered that no one is coming to their rescue. If you want to help them, please consider donating to Nevadans for State Gun Rights.
