Our friends at Shoreline Area News report that a forum on the two statewide gun initiatives on the November ballot is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 19 at Richmond Beach Congregational Church.
Proponents and opponents of expanded background checks will debate the initiatives Sunday at 11:30 a.m. in Pilgrim Hall in the basement of the church at the corner of Northwest Richmond Beach Road and 15th Avenue Northwest (1512 N.W. 195th St.)
Initiative 594 would expand background checks on gun purchasers in the state. Initiative 591 would prohibit the state from adopting background checks or other restrictions on firearms stricter than federal laws.
