Here are the Republican senators who are saying they
won't support SB1214 (concealed carry on campus):
Please email these senators and let them know of your
support for the bill. (Some are saying
that their district won't support the bill.)
If you live in their district, please be sure to mention that you are a
constituent. Also, I'm sure that you all
understand that you should not "Forward" a message such as this. Write a few lines - you don't have to say a
lot - and send it off. If you just click
on the email address above, you'll get a window for a message.
Gun rights supporters (John Wentling,
Todd Rathner, Gary Christensen, and others) are here today working hard to
collect votes and get an accurate head count.
It's going to be a very close vote.
As of right now, we don't know of any Democrats who will support the
bill for certain. There are 17
Republicans in the Senate and 30 total Senators. That means we need at least 16 Republican
senators to support the bill but, as you can see, the four Republican senators
(above) are not with us. So, we need to
either get the votes of O'Halleran, Allen, Huppenthal, and Tibshraeny, or we
need to pick up some Democratic votes.
Your lobbyists should have a better idea by the end of the day who might
be counted on to vote for the bill, and I'm sure they'll let us all know.
Please be polite and ask the above senators to
support SB1214 - I'll be in touch as I get more information.
