Crippling Anti-Gun Measure Still Looming Over Washington State!

Wednesday, February 21, 2007

 

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  

(360) 786-7670
