Reading the language of the bill basically this law is unenforceable. They let you keep and use existing magazines but there is no way to enforce you from acquiring more. People will cross state lines to get what they need.

Emailed my senator. Asked for a response.
The proposed law would make it illegal to have your G19 with a standard magazine with you on a trip to town to go do errands. The law says you can only have it if you are going to or from some legal shooting or hunting activities. And it has to be carried separately from the gun and unloaded.
These people are nuts. The sponsors.

It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Pass it on
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

What a PITA for the law-abiding, which will have absolutely no measurable impact on criminal activity.

Of course, because Dems are to stupid to figure things out, it is "emotions" that are what have to be caressed to make them feel important and intelligent!

It's not about enforcement.  It is about bludgeoning political enemies with the force of law.

Isn't this the same basic California law that was struck down by the 9th circuit court last year?  If so then it would stand to reason it also would be struck down thus the only real impact would be lawyers getting paid by tax payers?   :dunno:

Yep, they'll just keep trying and trying it until they get a judge who passes it.

But how about specifics? You must sign in. We would like to see a record number of people signed on to this bill – thousands! Numbers make a difference. Even if you don’t actually want to testify, you can sign in as supporting or opposing. Click on this link - https://app.leg.wa.gov/csiremote/

1. At the top, you will see three buttons. Click on the Senate button.

2. At the top of that page, you will see a drop down box that says “Committee” and another that says “Meetings”. Chooses Law & Justice as the Committee and 1/25/2021 9:30 am for meetings.

3. You need to choose the bill you wish to sign in for. Choose SB 5078 Firearm Safety (Yeah – that’s what they’ve named the bill “Firearm Safety”)

4. As soon as you click the bill number, there are three choices – submit written testimony, testify live, or you can just sign in as supporting or opposing. There is also a link where you can see the list of people who signed in. We’d like this list to go on forever. This is a great way to show      our numbers. You know the anti-2A people will organize to support. If you oppose this bill, you need to out-organize them!

5. Click on which you would like to do. If you do not wish to testify, but you want your voice heard, please click on this button and choose either pro, con, or other from the drop-down box.

6. Now here is the part that does bug some people. You have to enter your name, address, etc. This is not for some registry out there – this is to make sure you live in WA State. Think about it. If you live anywhere in the world, you have access to this site with a click of a button. Only WA State citizens can weigh in, so they have to confirm that you live here. Also, they need to know where in WA you live, so the legislators in that district get an idea of the feelings about those bills in their districts. You had to sign in when you went in person, as well. I know people don’t like to give out their personal info, but at some point – we need to make a stand. We have to. The other side is highly organized and will make it look like the majority supports this bill. We have to prove them wrong. It is public records, but so is every email you send to the Senate. Please make a stand on this. We have no other options.


I copied this from another forum, but the hearing is today on mag bans. You can register, and you don't have to testify. If you do and show that you are a "con", you help show the government that you are against this bill. Took all of about 30 seconds to do it. The more that register the better!
