Wisconsin: Just in From Senator Zien - Anti's Rally Next Tuesday

Posted on Friday, January 30, 2004 @ 02:50 PM by star1315

Here is what the anti self-defense groups have planned for Tuesday, February 3rd, 2004, the day the Assembly will vote to override Governor Doyle's veto of SB 214. Pass it on, and please come to the Capitol to show your support!

Senator Dave Zien
(608) 266-7511


TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2004, 9:00 A.M.

On Tuesday, February 3, 2004, the Wisconsin Assembly will attempt to override the Governor's veto of a bill that will overturn Wisconsin's more than 130 year old prohibition on carrying concealed weapons. The Assembly is moving forward with the override despite overwhelming evidence that the majority of Wisconsin citizens oppose such a law! These representatives, elected to represent the views of the citizens who elected them, are doing exactly the opposite for purely political reasons.

A very vocal minority, the pro-concealed carry movement, plan to pack the house! Don't let their voices ring louder than the majority of the state's citizens. Please come and become a part of history.

The Assembly plans to take the floor at 10:00 a.m. so don't be late. You can visit your Assembly representatives while you are at the Capitol to tell them that you oppose concealed carry. Materials will be available in Room 425 Southwest.

Women w/ children are encouraged to attend. Pink, first worn by the Mothers Acting Up group, has been a unifying color against concealed carry. Feel free to wear something pink or to wear any buttons/pins that identify your affiliation with an organization that opposes concealed carry.

ALSO NOTE: The Million Mom March plans to hold a bell-ringing ceremony, recognizing the lives of those who died by gun violence at 12 p.m. at the Capitol.
