In a recent email to Washington voters, Governor Jay Inslee (D) called for more misguided gun control legislation and went so far as to call NRA members a “destructive force.” The Governor is using law-abiding gun owners as a scapegoat for his failure to provide any practical solutions that would deal with crime and mental health issues in the state of Washington. Current laws do NOT need to be “strengthened,” but they DO need to be enforced.
Currently, Governor Jay Inslee is circulating a petition in an attempt to generate public support for even more gun control. In 2014, the NRA argued that piling Initiative 594, a notably unenforceable law, on top of the preexisting and unenforced background check law was disingenuous. From the beginning, I-594 was only going to burden law-abiding gun owners. Now that the Governor has realized this and the shortcomings of his Administration’s promises, he intends to double down and use the Obama/Bloomberg playbook to place even further restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of Washingtonians.
Members and Second Amendment supporters are urged to call Governor Jay Inslee and politely urge him to stop attacking law-abiding citizens with more unnecessary and unenforceable gun control and to dial back the inflammatory and inappropriate rhetoric.
