Today, the Washington Legislature began its 2015 session. The NRA will continue this year to fight any attack against your Second Amendment rights while continuing to help advance pro-gun and pro-hunting reforms in Olympia.
Unfortunately, during the 2014 General Election, Initiative 594 was enacted into law after being wholly misrepresented by its proponents and funded almost solely by anti-gun, elitist billionaires. Now that it has gone into effect, even law enforcement officials are unsure of how to enforce the law and are seeking answers.
Anti-gun groups supported by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, such as the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), are now set to return to Olympia with a laundry list of misguided and ineffective gun control legislation that they seek to impose on residents of the Evergreen State. It is more important than ever for members to get involved and and encourage their family, friends and fellow gun owners to do the same.
The NRA will keep you updated on the status of legislation impacting your Second Amendment rights in Washington, in addition to providing a simple and convenient way to contact your elected officials. As always, please check www.NRAILA.org and your email for alerts and action items as both pro-gun and anti-gun legislation progress through the Washington Legislature.
Also, please attend a pro-gun rally on January 15, at 9:00 a.m., on the Capitol steps in Olympia. Join fellow NRA supporters at the Capitol to protest Initiative 594 and to speak with your lawmakers about what they can do to overturn it! If you can’t attend, please spread the word to your pro-gun friends and family and encourage them to attend.
