Lol. On July 1 the number of Washington firearm owners who own an assault rifle will increase exponentially.

From my understanding , pistols and stripped lower ar15 style receivers are exempt from the actual 1639 rules , all though because of the FBI no longer conducting courtesy nics checks there will be a 10 day waiting period on lowers and pistols regardless if you have a CPL or not .

From what I understand, not knowing exactly how, that's not going to be an option.

This is correct because lowers are technically classified as firearms and not semi-autos. 1639 was poorly written and fortunately didn't consider them.

But our anti-gun AG is aware of them and has talked about banning 80% lowers. I would expect California style "ghost gun" rules to follow.

I know 1639 doesn't apply to stripped lowers. No need to rush out and get one. At least not yet. They may come back for those...

Where can I find the legal status to the challenges to 1639?

In some States you could have a friend (resident) buy it., sell it to you and then bring it into Washington. If you live in a county like Yakima nobody will give a hoot as I-1639 is a meaningless as immigration law in King County.

From what I saw on a sporting systems slide show you CAN legally bypass i1639 and purchase "assault rifles" out of state but it will vary by dealer .

Does this apply to semiauto shotguns too? I've been wanting one for a bit so I might have to pull the trigger on one if it does.
