Please Contact the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee Today!
With a deadline for action set for Wednesday, February 28, Senate Bill 5197 is still awaiting a vote in the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee.
SB5197 is a measure aimed directly at private firearm sales, which would mandate that all firearms sold at gun shows be transferred through a federally licensed dealer, thereby imposing dealer restrictions on private individuals who are not dealers. This will establish a gun tax on firearms, and effectively halt handgun sales at gun shows.
Please contact the members of the Labor and Commerce Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose SB5197:
State Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles, Chair
State Senator Karen Keiser, Vice-Chair
State Senator Jim Clements
State Senator Rosa Franklin
State Senator Janea Holmquist
State Senator Ed Murray
State Senator Margarita Prentice
Also, please contact your State Senator and respectfully request he/she oppose SB5197 should it come out of committee and to put pressure on leadership to not bring the measure up for a vote. Your State Senator can be reached toll-free at (800) 562-6000.
