Ammo Serialization (Registration) Bill Proposed in Washington State!

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

Legislation has been proposed in Olympia that poses a very serious threat to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and it needs to be stopped immediately.

House Bill 3359, sponsored by State Representatives Al O’Brien (D-1), Brendan Williams (D-22), Dennis Flannigan (D-27), and Jamie Pedersen (D-43), would require that all handgun ammunition manufactured or sold in Washington to be coded with an individual serial number, and entered into a statewide database at the time of sale.  Encoded ammunition would be registered to the purchaser and would include the date of transaction, the purchaser’s name, date of birth, driver’s license number, and the serial number of the ammunition. 

This dangerous bill needs to be stopped now.  HB3359 only serves to harass law-abiding gun owners, as criminals are not likely to purchase ammunition through legal channels.  Please contact your State Senator and your State Representative today and respectfully urge them to oppose HB3359.  Contact information for your State Legislators can be found by visiting http://apps.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/statewide.aspx.
