$4000 Reward



Protect Our Gun Rights

Help Undo the Damage of I-594!
BELLEVUE, WA – Four Second Amendment organizations, including the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, announced today they are offering a $4,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the slaying of Donnie Chin, a respected activist in Seattle’s International District, and also a devoted firearms enthusiast and collector.
CCRKBA has pooled resources with the Washington Arms Collectors (WAC), of which Chin was a longtime member, Second Amendment Foundation and Protect Our Gun Rights (POGR), a gun rights umbrella group.
Chin was fatally shot early on the morning of July 23 while patrolling the Chinatown International District. He was the founder of the International District Emergency Center (IDEC) when he was a young teen. He was also an active WAC member and table holder at the group’s monthly gun shows at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.WAC Member and International District Emergency Center director Donnie Chin was recently honored by OCA-Greater Seattle with a Golden Circle Award.
“Donnie was a dedicated WAC member for 20 years and often had a table at our events,” said WAC Executive Director Phil Shave, a retired law enforcement professional. “He was one of our own and his WAC friends and colleagues want his killer or killers brought to justice. He gave so much to his community in Seattle, and he was well-liked and respected by his WAC brothers and sisters. We won’t rest until those responsible are apprehended.”
“Donnie Chin earned the respect of his friends and neighbors in the firearms community, as well as those in the International District,” added CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, a former WAC director. “He was a mainstay at Puyallup, and we owe it to his memory to help track down the people who did this.”
“We hope by offering this reward that someone will step forward and help put Donnie’s killer behind bars,” said POGR Treasurer Phil Watson. “Somebody knows who did this. They need to contact Seattle police immediately and help take Donnie’s killer off the streets.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that could help solve this crime is encouraged to contact the SPD Homicide TIP line at 206-233-5000.
Those interested in contributing to the reward fund should contact WAC’s Renton office at 425-255-8410 or CCRKBA at 425-454-4911.

First 2016 Prez Debate

USCCA

 
The USCCA will have your back when no one else will...
 
Dear responsibly armed American,
 
First off, let me start by saying 
the Liberal Media doesn't want you to know this...
 
There's people out there who don't want 
you to know you have options....
 
They want you to think that if you own or carry a gun 
for self-defense you won't be protected 
when everything's said and done...
 
They want to scare you into either never buying a firearm, or 
keeping the one you have locked up tight in a dusty safe...
 
They want you to think that you're alone in your fight...
 
Well here at the USCCA, we think that's not only 
ludicrous, but also a VERY dangerous way to live...
 
Because you and I both know the only person who is truly 
going to be the first line of defense for your loved ones, is you.
 
Well please believe me when I say, you're not alone.
 
 
In fact, we'll be there for you every step of the way...
 
We'll give you the education and training you 
need to become your family's BEST protector...
 
You'll receive your own personal case manager you can call 
at any time, 24/7/365, if you're involved in a self-defense shooting...
 
And most importantly, we'll provide you with up to $1,100,000 in Self-Defense 
SHIELD protection
- the legal and financial back-up plan you need 
to stay out of jail and out of debt when one of these naysayers 
tries to tell you that you did something wrong - simply 
for protecting the ones you love...
 
Join forces today with over 85,000 responsibly armed Americans who 
already trust the USCCA to have their back when no else  
will and activate your membership today.
 
Take care and stay safe,
 
 
Tim Schmidt
President | USCCA
 
P. S. - If you've been thinking about becoming a USCCA member, you don't 
want to wait much longer...because only those who activate before 
July 31st
will receive 10 chances to win $5,000

The GOA

Thanks for Your Support!
“The entire background check system is flawed.  Not only is it unconstitutional -- and disarming many law-abiding citizens -- it’s failing to keep guns out of criminals’ hands and is not keeping people safe.” -- GOA’s Erich Pratt in USA Today, July 28

Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America today for only $20!

Lucky-Gunner UpdateErich Pratt
A couple of weeks ago, GOA alerted you to the Lucky-Gunner giveaway, which will result in the Brady Campaign dishing out thousands of dollars to the top vote-getting gun groups.
We were fourteenth at the time, but now thanks to help from activists like yourself, we have been in and out of first place -- currently residing in second.
If you haven’t voted yet, please take a moment to do so right now.  It will literally take you only a couple of seconds -- and by doing so, you will be helping to multiply our lobbying efforts so we can keep wavering legislators in line! 
Either click on the link immediately above or on the graphic to the right -- and vote for GOA. Time is running out, so please do so today!
GOA in USA Today
After a recent spate of shootings -- in Charleston, South Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and Lafayette, Louisiana -- USA Today asked Gun Owners of America to respond.
Many in the media and on Capitol Hill are calling for greater restrictions on firearms owners.  But GOA pointed out that current gun control restrictions are failing to stop bad guys from getting guns.
Not only that, the entire background check system is “flawed,” said GOA’s Erich Pratt to USA Today readers.  Not only is it denying guns to honest Americans, it’s “failing to keep guns out of criminals’ hands and is not keeping people safe.”
So what does prevent mass shootings from occurring? 
Pratt cited the Florida pastor, who this past December, prevented a possible mass shooting -- and saved the lives of several men, women and children -- when he used his concealed firearm to incapacitate a shooter.
And he reminded readers of the many law-abiding citizens who halted mass shootings this year -- in a Philadelphia barber shop in March; on a crowded Chicago street corner in April; or in a Youngstown, Ohio bar in June.
These are just a few of the many self-defense cases, Pratt said, where armed citizens have stopped massacres, and enabled others to stay safe.
Again, Gun Owners of America wants to thank you for your support of our lobbying efforts -- and for helping us to stay on the Front Lines and in the Public Square, educating Americans on the importance of our Second Amendment rights.

Please do not reply directly to this message, as your reply will bounce back as undeliverable.

Can Boy Scouts be in your churrch?

July 28, 2015
New Boy Scout Policy Makes
Host 
Church Liable?
 
by FPIW


Yesterday, the Nation Board of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) ended their ban on gay leaders. 

This brings up concern for churches who host BSA meetings in their facilities. The Mormon Church voiced concern over the new policy and was able to come to an agreement with the BSA and the new membership policy.

Under the new policy, any church who hosts BSA meetings and believe marriage is between a man and a woman will be able to choose the leaders for their local units. They can choose leaders who share their beliefs on marriage and can "[restrict]...positions to heterosexual men".

But does the new policy make host churches liable?

The answer might be yes.  Now that the Boy Scouts are taking a position contrary to the biblical understanding of marriage and sexuality, churches who partner with the BSA might be exposing themselves to additional liability. 


Other resources available for churches is the Alliance Defending Freedom Protecting Your Ministry guidebook and the FPIW Protect Your Ministry meetings.

Throughout the summer and fall, FPIW is hosting Protect Your Ministry meetings all over the State to  help churches and ministries better prepare for potential lawsuits as a result of the Supreme Court ruling on marriage. You can read more about the meetings here and find out when there will be a meeting near you.

Why Support I-1366?

Senator Pam Roach explains her support for Initiative 1366

       
It's really gratifying to see how much support Initiative 1366 is attracting.  Besides the 339,000 voters who signed our petitions, the Taxpayer Protection Act has been endorsed by the State Republican Party, Farm Bureau, Libertarian Party, and others.

        But most exciting of all is the stunning number of legislative leaders who are speaking out in favor of Initiative 1366:

       
"Since the voters first approved the 2/3 requirement with Initiative 601 in 1993, the Legislature has had 22 consecutive legislative sessions to refer to the ballot a constitutional amendment requiring a 2/3 vote of the Legislature or a majority vote of the people for any tax increase.  They could have let the voters vote on it in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.  But they didn't.  And because Olympia ignored the voters, the Legislature now faces Initiative 1366.  It shouldn't have come to this.  Olympia should have acted sooner on the voters' clear mandate.  This is, by far, Eyman's most thoughtful initiative.  It resurrects the most popular taxpayer protection policy in state history.  In the 31st district, 73% of voters overwhelmingly support the 2/3 requirement.  I agree with them.  Voters must pass Initiative 1366 in November or else there will never be a 2/3-for-taxes constitutional amendment.  I support Initiative 1366 so the people can permanently protect themselves."  Senator Pam Roach (R-Auburn).

        Isn't she fantastic?

        Please take a moment to send her a quick email thanking her for her leadership and support for I-1366 (cut and paste into the "To" line of your email:  pam.roach@leg.wa.gov; pamroach@aol.com; cheryl.marshall@leg.wa.gov; tim_eyman@comcast.net


        Initiative 1366 is called the "Taxpayer Protection Act" for a reason:  it's all about protecting the taxpayers from Olympia's insatiable tax appetite.  Whenever people ask why our initiative is necessary, all we say is "Did you see how tax-obsessed Olympia was this year?"
 


        If you like and appreciate our past, current, and future efforts on behalf of taxpayers and especially now that Initiative 1366 has qualified for the ballot, please send us a donation for $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, $2500, $5000 or more (there are no limits on how much can be given).  You can go to our website right now - www.VotersWantMoreChoices.com and make a secure on-line contribution by PayPal or VISA or M/C.  OR, you can print this form, fill it out, and return it with a check or credit card information. 

        We’ve done so many amazing things over the past 16 years, but that's only been possible thanks to successful benefactors like you.  We ask you to please help us help taxpayers. 

         Please donate TODAY.

         Thank you.

Tim Eyman, Jack Fagan, & Mike F
