Link your blogs and websites to http://www.pnnl.info.  Mention both Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and PNNL. This will raise the search engine ranking of the site and get greater visibility to the troubling anti-gun owner policies of this government lab.  Do not link to the PNNL website--this would increase their ranking as well.  Write about it on your blogs.  Point out http://www.pnnl.info to your favorite bloggers.

As an alternative to the 1st and 2nd Amendment issues address the stress the lax operational security issue with audiences that are not sympathetic to gun owners.

Distribute the news release to your local newspapers, radio and television stations. 

Call your favorite talk radio hosts.

Contact your Representatives and Senators.  Be polite but firm.  Do not ever threaten or imply an illegal act.  A sample email:

Subject: Anti-gun owner bigotry at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

I recently visited http://www.pnnl.info. I was shocked to learn a government laboratory would investigate an employee because they exercised constitutionally guaranteed rights.  It is clear Huffman's advocacy of gun owner rights was the basis of the investigation and probably his firing.  This is not what my tax money should be spent on.  My tax money is to be spent on protecting my freedoms, not punishing those who exercise those same freedoms in a lawful manner.

If Battelle does not correct the situation then Battelle should not be allowed to continue operating PNNL or any other laboratory which receives government money.  Please remember this when voting on appropriations because I will remember it when I vote.

Contact the Department of Energy.  Be polite but firm.  Do not ever threaten or imply an illegal act.  A sample email:

If Battelle does not correct the situation then Battelle should not be allowed to continue operating PNNL, any other laboratory, or received government contracts.

Contact PNNL management.  Be polite but firm.  Do not ever threaten or imply an illegal act.  A sample email:
