Rep. Gannon Slams Rotary International for Anti-Gun Stand

The full story at the Washington County Insider. Good for Gannon.

Feb. 27, 2017 – West Bend, WI – State Representative Bob Gannon (R-West Bend) will be speaking to the West Bend Sunrise Rotary on Tuesday about a directive from the Rotary International Board that forbids local clubs from participating in events that relate to guns.

Some of the suggested events include gun shows, shooting events, gun raffles, etc.

During a one-on-one interview Monday morning Gannon said he learned about the decision by Rotary International last week.

“All I can assume is the Rotary International Board probably, as part of the debate to pass something this broad, somebody brought up that this wasn’t going to go over well in America and all I can assume is the people around the table said ‘tough,’” said Gannon.

“Rotary International has every right to act like a mini United Nations, but I also have the right to no longer support them.”

    Speaking as a Member of Kiwanis, with a gun event as it’s top fundraiser for community civic investment….Kiwanis Members would welcome all the Rotary clubs with open arms that would want to convert to Kiwanis clubs.
