And we are off to Washington DC – 03.06.2013
It has been an interesting week. Joe has received plane tickets from Rep. Mike Thompson’s office to head to the hill.
Rep. Thompson who is also the chairman of the Congressional Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, will hold a hearing exploring the relationship between background checks and preventing criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from obtaining guns. He has asked the Capital Gun Club to help be a voice on this matter. Joe was to leave yesterday to speak today (as noted in this NY Times article), but due to weather conditions the hearing has been postponed until next Friday.
We will keep you posted if the hearing is going to be televised!
