I’ve got some inside info for you
The NRA’s lobbyists have finally made their move. They’ve emailed their activists a whole pile of lies to spread to their friends and families to scare and confuse them — and try to stop Washington from voting Yes on 594.
It’s some pretty crazy, tinfoil hat, conspiracy theory stuff — and pretty much exactly what we expected from these lobbyist types. But still, I was a little surprised at just how shrill and desperate the tone was.
Every tired, old cliché that the gun lobby has used for years to stop any reasonable reform was in there: from a paranoid registration conspiracy to a bunch of delusional fears not about what 594 actually does — but what it might lead to. Reading their email, it seems like they just hit “copy” and “paste” from whatever playbook they get from their lobbying headquarters in Washington, D.C.
And that’s why I need your help. We have to build up our rapid-reaction fund now to counter these lies, or we’ll never be able to win this fall.

Now, polling shows most gun owners are ready to vote Yes on 594 — but this pile of lies is designed to trick NRA members into thinking that the same easy, commonsense reform that is already saving lives in states like Colorado is some kind of crazy plot.
And nobody knows better what a bunch of hooey that is than the NRA lobbyist that is peddling it to their members — and soon to regular voters in Washington.
They know better, but they still are still trying to trick gun owners into thinking that simply extending our existing background check system to all gun sales is an evil scheme to steal their guns. It would be laughable if we didn’t know that these crazy rantings may be enough to scare someone into voting against 594.
We need to spread the truth — and we need your help to do that.
Contribute $3 today to our rapid-reaction fund by the June 30 deadline, and help us spread the truth about 594!
Now that we know for sure that they’re not going to hold back on the lies, we really need to get in gear.
Thanks for helping us fight these lobbyists’ lies,
Yes on 594
