2A Activists to Rally for Rights on WA Capitol Steps Friday
 :tup:
Washington State gun rights activists will gather Friday morning at 9 a.m. on the Capitol steps in Olympia to oppose a slew of gun control bills that Democrats, who now hold the majority in both the state House and Senate, apparently think they have a chance to pass.

I can't make, Dave. Do you have a feeling yet for the expected turnout? Do you have a feeling for how many Ds will oppose such bills?

@Bushcraft  was there.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Washington State Gun Control Battle Warming Up

January 15, 2018 By Dave Workman
http://libertyparkpress.com/washington-state-gun-control-battle-warming/

With nearly 1,000 people on both sides of the gun rights issue listening, Second Amendment advocates, including some retired law enforcement professionals, told a Washington State Senate panel that proposed gun control measures in that state will do nothing to prevent crimes, but only penalize law-abiding citizens.

But there were some Second Amendment heavy hitters in the audience who also testified. Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, told the committee that the bump stock bill “goes far beyond” those devices.

“These devices do not turn a semi-automatic firearm into a machine gun,” he said. “There’s a lot of misinformation about what they do and accomplish.”

In opposing the proposed magazine ban, he said they are not “large capacity” devices but original capacity magazines that have been used for more than a half-century by Evergreen State residents.

WA anti-gunners hint at initiative if gun control bills fail

Evergreen State gun prohibitionists hinted Monday that if they fail to move their gun control agenda through the legislature this year, they may consider another initiative.

"State Sen. Kevin Van de Wege, a Sequim Democrat, sponsored the bump stock bill, telling the committee that the devices “shouldn’t be allowed.” He also said he is a “lifetime member of the NRA,” and considers himself “a pretty strong defender of the Second Amendment.”

Another Jay Inslee in the flesh!!  Pretty much what Jay said("I'll never vote for any gun control measure") when he ran in Okanogan county, we kicked him out the next time he ran!!

Democrats, ENEMY'S of the American Citizen!!!
