Dave Workman: Suicide Prevention Bill in WA State Cooperative Effort
The Washington state House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on an ambitious measure aimed at suicide prevention that not only has bipartisan sponsorship, but also the support of gun rights groups, it was announced today.
Sponsored by State Rep. Tina Orwall (D-33rd District), House Bill 2793 has been “in the works” for several months, according to Bellevue gun rights advocate Alan Gottlieb. He is the executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and he's been on the "ground floor" of this effort.
