Initiative 594 backers to hold signing event in Mercerdale Park on Aug. 6

The Island-based Moms Demand Action group is hosting a mass initiative signing event for Initiative 594, a measure that would ensure criminal background checks on all gun purchases, between 6 and 9 p.m., Tuesday, August 6, at Mercerdale Park.

Organizers hope that as many people as possible will be at the park at 7 p.m.for a photo in order to illustrate a high level of support for the initiative.

Only Washington State registered voters can sign the initiative. Organizers have said they will have numerous copies of the initiative for signing during the event, so no one will have to wait long.
