Stop the Wham-George Gun Grab!

Leadership Races could put Leading Gun Rights Enemies in Powerful Positions

May 29th, 1998 - Gun rights supporters in Colorado could be put in a perilous position if two of their biggest opponents, State Sen. Dottie Wham and State Rep. Russ George, are elected to top leadership posts in the state legislature.

State Senator Dottie Wham, long an opponent of concealed carry and other pro-gun measures, is seeking the Presidency of the Colorado Senate. Though her support might seem slim, State Capitol insiders are floating rumors that Wham may gather some Democrat votes, along with liberal Republicans, in a bid for the top spot.

State Representative Russ George, however, may be closer to his goal. A long-time opponent of concealed carry, George is reported to be quite close to being elected Speaker of the Colorado House, its top position. State Rep. Ken Gordon, a very liberal anti-gun Democrat, offered Russ George any help the Democrats could provide to assist in his run for Speaker.

Both positions come with enormous powers, including committee appointments, agenda setting, bill committee assignments and other perks.

Considering the record of Wham and George, gun owners should be very interested in these leadership races.

How to Stop this Unprecedented Anti-Gun Powergrab

Our only option to stop this powergrab is to convince legislative candidates and incumbents to vote against Wham or George.

Lobbying is most effective when politicians are running for office, therefore the time to pin them down on this issue is now. Ask your State Senator, or candidates for these offices, to sign this pledge to vote against Dottie Wham in the race for President of the Senate.

Then ask your State Representative, or candidate, to sign this pledge to vote against Russ George for speaker.

Tell them both that a vote for either liberal anti-gunner is unacceptable, and you view voting for Wham or George as a vote for the enemy.

Return this pledge to Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, and we will hold the politician’s feet to the fire.
