Washington: Votes Scheduled on Gun Control in Senate Law & Justice Committee

On January 24th at 10:00AM, the Washington state Senate Committee on Law & Justice will be holding an executive session on anti-gun bills, where they are expected to be brought up for a vote.  Please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE these gun control bills.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.

Your NRA would like to thank all the members and Second Amendment supporters who took the time to contact committee members and traveled to Olympia earlier this week to urge opposition to these bills.

Senate Bill 5027, sponsored by Senator David Frockt (D-46), would expand Washington’s existing Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO).  It would affirm that the ERPO can be issued against minors while also infringing upon the self-defense rights of law-abiding parents or others in the household without due process.  

The Proposed Substitute to  Senate Bill 5061, sponsored by Senator Manka Dhingra (D-45), was filed at the request of Attorney General Bob Ferguson.  It would end the centuries old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use, among other things. 

The Proposed Substitute to Senate Bill 5062, sponsored by Senator Patty Kuderer (D-48), was filed at the request of Attorney General Ferguson.  It would ban the possession of ammunition magazines with a capacity greater than 10, encompassing most standard capacity magazines commonly used by law-abiding citizens, such as with handguns popular for self-defense.  Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban would only be allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges and nationally sanctioned sport shooting events.  These magazines would have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.

Senate Bill 5143, sponsored by Senator Dhingra, would require law-enforcement to seize firearms and ammunition when they are called to the scene of an alleged domestic violence incident and hold them for at least five business days.  This would result in property being confiscated without first going through due process and subjecting citizens to bureaucratic red tape to get their property returned. 

Senate Bill 5174, sponsored by Senator Guy Palumbo (D-1), would increase the government red tape that law-abiding adults must go through in order to obtain a Concealed Pistol License by requiring a mandatory training course. 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and urge committee members to OPPOSE these gun control bills.
