Washingtonians, please vote for Initiative 1491, a measure that could prevent future tragedies by allowing family members to ask a judge to temporarily suspend a person’s access to firearms if there is documented evidence that the person poses significant threat to themselves or others.
The reason why a family and society puts so much value on the life of a newborn child is because they are our future. A future that can grow up and start a Facebook like Mark Zuckerberg at the age of 23 and employ thousands of needy people and connect half the world or a future that will be cut short in a tragedy just because they were at the wrong place and at the wrong time.
Initiative 1491 will hopefully save that one brilliant, bright girl or boy and their dream.
I therefore appeal to your good conscience to help make Washington state secure. Ending this with one of my favorite quotes from President Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” and today I want to do this for safety of my adopted country and urge you to do your bit.
