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 Wednesday 3/30/11 at 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Â North Capitol Street and Louisana Avenue N.E. outside the Fox News DC Bureau and C-Span.
Appearing at the event will be CCRKBA Public Affairs Director John Snyder, CCRKBA Legislative Director Joe Waldron and Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) President Philip Van Cleave. They 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 Â 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 severalÂ major American cities over the past few weeksâ€.
CCRKBAâ€™s mobile billboard arrived in Washington, DC Monday, and has been traveling the streets with a simple message: Guns Save Lives. CCRKBA and VCDL will have handouts available, and will answer questions.
