WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!
In a highly unusual and questionable move, Senate Bill 1221 will be granted a special session and a FIFTH call for a vote on Monday, July 2, 2012.
… There will be no public testimony allowed, and the room the meeting will be held in is so small that few, if any, members of the public will be permitted inside. CHC and COHA will make sure we are in there.
… We must not let them slip this bill through quietly, and are therefore urging everyone to come to the California State Capitol for a No on SB1221 Rally…the more of us that are there, the less likely they will feel comfortable sneaking this bill through.
During our meetings at the Capitol on June 12th, CHC and COHA observed a Yes on 1221 rally with a whopping 53 members of the bill's supporters. The chanting of these 53 people could easily be heard from inside the building.
Now, I ask you, imagine the sound that 1000 of us would make! IT WOULD BE DEAFENING.
We need you there! We need you to make your opinion known by making your voice heard! This is where you will let everybody know where you stand! This is where you will join shoulder to shoulder with your fellow Americans, signs held high, and leave no doubt that you will protect your hounds and our wonderful tradition with every fiber of your being. We cannot lose. We must not lose.
The political scheming and disregard for the will of the people has got to stop. We must take our state back! It must begin here and now!
Join with CHC, COHA, and USSA in defending what is rightfully yours. Do it for yourself. Do it for your hounds. Do it for the houndsmen and women that came before us. Do it for your children and the future generations of hound hunters that are counting on us. Hound hunting must not be banned. Not on our watch!
