I'm the President of UGSOA, local 234, Protective Security Officers charged with the protection of high-risk sites in Lewis, Thurston, Pierce, Clallam, Gray's Harbor and Kitsap Counties. The members of this Local have decided, in a unanimous vote, to oppose I-594. The language in the initiative is such that, if passed, would not only make criminals of good citizens, but also lead the way to registration and ultimately confiscation. Security companies that issue a weapon at the start of a shift, with the weapon returned after the shift, would be required to conduct a background check twice a day, once when the employee receives the weapon, once when the employee returns it to their boss. FOR EACH EMPLOYEE. No good would come of this initiative. Please join us in actively opposing this attempt at gun control.
