Urgent! Gun Control
« on: March 01, 2018, 01:23:13 PM »
Call the following number, 1-800-562-6000 and let your Washington Senator and Representatives hear your voice about the latest  gun control measures coming up for a vote. You will get alive person and they will verify who you are and where you live. Tell them you want your reps to vote no or yes, hopefully no. CALL TODAY!

Gentlemen, when the enemy is committed to a mistake we must not interrupt him too soon.

This bill is not dead.

Today it passed the last committee hurdle and will progress to the Floor Calendar. It passed out of committee on unaminous party line vote, as the Dems on the committe outnumber the Republicans.

It appears that the actual intent of this bill is to eventually outlaw guns, if you read the verbage, it could make lawful gun owners and gun dealers criminals/felons in certain circumstances (they let illegals vote, but do you think they will let a know felon vote?). A requirement will be that if someone attempts to purchase a gun which falls under some of the limiting criteria of the bill, you give "Them"-state agencies/law enforcement/DSHS etc the authority to to review your medical history/records and any other pertinent history they wish to review, in order to "process" your application. Not sure how this will meet HIPPAA or other privacy guidelines, but they have written it in as a waiver of your rights when you attempt to purchase one of their "bad" guns.

They refuse to go after the criminals/gangs/illegals with guns, so their target now appears to be lawful citizens.

Further information may be found on the Washington State Legislature website. Look for SB 6620-2017-18. SB stands for Substitute Bill, as this is at least the second attempt/rewrite of this bill, which now has the emphasis of "saving the children" with the draconian gun/ownership limits added. If you really want to get your blood boiling, check out pages 19-20, sections 16, 17 and 18 of SB 6620.

There is also a thread on this topic running on the Outdoor Advocacy and Agencies forum.

Check out SB 6620, make your own judgement, and contact your state representatives.

The ILA branch of the NRA does that for me. Form letter is already completely typed-up - just add your personal touch and send automatically to your state representatives. Heard back from my legislators the following week!
