Today, the House Judiciary Committee considered substitute bills for House Bill 1387 and House Bill 1122. Thanks to your calls and emails, House Bill 1387, and its substitute bill that we reported on yesterday, didn’t receive a vote and have officially died in committee having failed to pass before the deadline. Unfortunately, a Substitute for House Bill 1122 was passed out of committee and will soon be on the House floor where it will await full consideration. It is more important than ever that you contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE the Substitute for House Bill 1122.
The Substitute for House Bill 1122 would require the locking up of one’s firearms or else they would potentially face reckless endangerment charges. Further, under this bill the penalty for a reckless endangerment charge involving a gun storage violation would amount to a Class C Felony. This intrusive government legislation invades people’s homes and forces them to render their firearms useless in a self-defense situation by locking them up. House Bill 1122 is a solution in search of a problem.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE the Substitute for House Bill 1122.
While your NRA-ILA has been on the ground in Olympia continuously working hard with pro-gun legislators to defeat these outrageous anti-gun bills, it is thanks to your continued contact with your state legislators that makes all the difference. Please contact those state Representatives that voted against House Bill 1122 in the House Judiciary Committee and thank them for voting to defend your Second Amendment rights. Those who voted against House Bill 1122 are listed below:
