BELLEVUE, WA â€“ The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms will hold a special media event featuring the rolling â€œGuns Save Livesâ€ billboard on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the corner of 200 East Van Buren Street and N. 2nd Street outside the Arizona Republic newspaper.
Appearing at the event will be CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, who will be discussing the benefits of firearms ownership, and what gun prohibitionists are trying to hide with their current effort to scare the public into supporting additional restrictions on gun owners.
Anti-gun billionaire New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has teamed up with Mayors Against Illegal Guns to send a moving billboard truck around the country claiming that 34 Americans are â€œmurdered with guns every day.â€ CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb said, â€œBloombergâ€™s campaign tells less than half of a story, so weâ€™re setting the record straight with the help of several outstanding Arizona gun rights activists.â€
â€œBloombergâ€™s organization would be more aptly titled â€˜Mayors Against Self-Defenseâ€™,â€ said Joe Waldron CCRKBA legislative liason. â€œTheir campaign of hysteria and the mis-information it is spreading, inspired CCRKBA and the Second Amendment Foundation to send out our own truck and â€˜truth squadâ€™ to Phoenix and several other major American cities over the next few weeksâ€.
CCRKBAâ€™s mobile billboard arrived in Phoenix Monday, and has been traveling the streets with a simple message: Guns Save Lives. Alan Gottlieb will have handouts available, and will answer questions.
