1. A gun show at the Nevada City Elks Lodge is scheduled for this weekend. The space rental by the gun show promoter was made a year ago, but signs about the gun show started popping up last week. The Elks have been receiving calls both in support and in opposition to the gun show; they may be regretting their decision to rent their space for the show. Nevada City Elks need to hear more from us:
Please call Nevada City Elks at 530-265-4920 and say that you do not want gun shows to be held in our community. We need to make sure this the LAST gun show in Nevada County.
2. DIE-IN for gun reform at Congressman Tom McClintock’s Roseville Office.
When: Tuesday, June 12 at 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM
Place: 2200A Douglas Blvd Unit 240 Roseville, CA 95661 See MAP
In remembrance of the 2nd anniversary of the Pulse shooting in Orlando, Florida, and in solidarity with the National Die-in and other die-in’s happening nationwide, students will be holding a die-in at Congressman McClintock’s Roseville office to call attention to his voting record on gun issues, the $95,156 he has accepted from the NRA, and the overall federal legislative inaction on gun violence. The die-in will begin at 12pm and will last for 12 minutes, 760 seconds which is the number of people that have died in a mass shooting since Pulse. People will be gathering at 11:15 and are encouraged to bring signs to help call attention to the event.
Placer County Members: Let’s support these students! Nevada County: Email your interest on carpooling to Roseville.
