Safety First on Business Card

The League of Women Voters of Northwest Maricopa County scheduled a meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, March 23, to “take the pulse of members and guests regarding their feelings about gun safety.”

The meeting was to take place at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 17540 N. Avenue of the Arts, in Surprise.

Jennifer Zechlin, West Valley Chair for Moms Demand Action, will lead the discussion and administer a survey.

The results of the survey will be compiled and the state membership informed of the results shortly thereafter.  

In September, the LWVAZ Gun Safety Study group embarked on a mission to examine Arizona league member opinions and concerns on state gun safety issues through research, education and consensus building. The national league position on gun policy was first adopted in 1990, with amendments in 1994 and 1998. 

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. The League also welcomes men as members.
