Calls needed on off-duty arms bill for CCO's

Call your senator at 1-800-562-6000 to support ESHB 1041 to give off-duty Community Corrections officers who’ve received training the right to carry weapons to protect themselves from released offenders who may recognize them in everyday life. The bill had no opposition in a March 23 hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Federation Lobbyist Matt Zuvich said many of the original concerns were fixed in the House before it passed there.
