    A few tips for those planning to attend and testify:

    Concealed carry only on a college campus

    Public testimony is planned to be limited to 3 minutes. Practice your testimony to be sure you are within this time limit. Be ready for the time to be cut shorter. You must register to testify.

    Get there early and help pack the front rows with 2A supporters.

    1) Publicly available and ACCURATE/up-to-date list of restricted persons! For FTF sales.
    2) See #1!!
    3) Social media firms are NOT trustworthy!
    4)related to cybersecurity - find some decent IT people.
    5) see #1 !!

    If they handle it like at the Capitol, registration will be done the day of the hearing by either paper or through iPad. Look for the folks handing out GOA stickers and they can point you in the right direction.
