PSC Notes for September
Posted September 17, 2014
At the moment there are three issues of interest for us. First, the ever-evolving county range ordinance, second an agenda motion to raise membership dues, and third a proposed bylaws change.
The first is for information only since the ordinance is now in the hands of the county commissioners.
As of this past Friday, September 12, we had what we believe to be our last input to the ordinance language. Please keep in mind that the commissioners are not bound by our suggestions nor the suggested ordinance that is the result of two years of work; they will vote or change as they see fit. But as of the last change, which is really a modification of a change that was revised (get the picture?) we believe that the club will maintain all present shooting programs including the Cowboy action competitions and the Pistol Group matches. Both of these last two were contentious on a number of levels including... [read more]
Proposed Bylaws Change
Posted September 15, 2014
A proposed PSC Bylaws change was submitted at the regular membership meeting on September 2, 2014. The changes were submitted with the intent they should be put into effect on January 1, 2015. The full text of the changes can be found here and the vote will be taken at the regular membership meeting scheduled for October 7, 2014. A 2/3 majority vote of vested members is required to pass the revision.
Vote YES on I-591 - Vote NO on I-594

...There are less than 70 days left to stop this nonsense...
UNIVERSAL HANDGUN REGISTRATION... as a gun owner, if that phrase does not reach out of history and grab you from behind then nothing will. It is only a part of what I-594 will do if not defeated. There are 100 days left to stop this nonsense.
The first thing you need to do is to make sure you vote along with your family and friends. If either you or they are not registered to vote, now is the time to get that fixed. The election is November 4th and you must be registered at least 29 days before the election. In Washington you can register on line, via mail, or in person. A good place to start is with the Kitsap County Auditor. Click on Elections and voting. The web site is here: http://www.kitsapgov.com/aud/default.htm.
The second thing to do is educate yourself about the details. I-594 is 18 pages of lies from the opening sentence to the last period. The lies have been swallowed whole and are being regurgitated on a daily basis by the media, the talking heads, and anti-gunners everywhere. Both out of state and in state billionaires are funding the process.
An outstanding two-page point by point I-594 claim rebuttal has been prepared by the NRA. You can download a copy here. A two page talking points summary is provided here. Both of these can be downloaded and printed or forwarded via e-mail.
I-591 serves to protect your firearms rights and I-594 takes your rights away. A one page summary is provided here.
Phil Shave, Editor of the Gun News from Washington Arms Collectors, has written an excellent article titled The Myths of I-594 and it can be found here. Also Phil has authored an editorial titled Why Should I Vote for I-591 and it can be found here. Both of these can also be downloaded and printed or forwarded via e-mail.
