Committee members,

I’m writing to you as a (pick one or add your own) veteran / spouse / family member / friend of someone who has committed suicide.

I urge you to please bring SHB 1181 to a hearing and strongly recommend you support this bill. 

Suicide rates are unacceptably high, particularly amongst veterans and military service members. 65% of veteran suicides were by firearm.

This bill will absolutely help to reduce the single largest component of gun deaths in Washington. 

The funding requirements are very low and mostly self-sustaining, which is critically important while budgets are so tight this year.

Your voice absolutely matters. This year we’re more organized and active than ever. How do we know? The anti-gun lobby is sending out impassioned pleas to their base, begging them to get more involved. They’re afraid of your voice. Let’s get louder. Let’s bring our friends in to make even more noise.
