SPEAK UP (prepare a statement — we’ll help!) or if you’d rather not,
STAND UP in solidarity. Let’s OUTNUMBER the Gun Lobby!EMAIL OR CALL: Members of the House, State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee to voice your opposition! (You can leave a message after office hours)
OR WRITE: Letters to the Editor (Denver Post, Times-Call, Boulder Daily Camera) to voice your opinion that these bills are a BAD IDEA for Colorado — undoing good work already done — and encourage public opposition to them!
ANY QUESTIONS? Use the links above to find Committee Member contact as well as editorial submission information. Use the “how to track a bill” and “legislative contacts & committees” widgets (to the right of this post!) at longmontdems.org. GOOD TO KNOW: HB means “House Bill”, SB means “Senate Bill”, and signifies the part of the legislative body the bill originated in. The “15” after the SB and HB in the bill document indicates the year of the legislative session the bill was introduced. When voicing your opinion, include a personal story as to why the bill is important to you. CHECK THE CALENDAR FOR EACH DAY AND OFTEN — meetings are known to change time and room number at a moment’s notice!

THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
