Washington: Committee Deadline And Anti-Gun Bills

Washington: Committee Deadline And Anti-Gun Bills

February 7th marked the deadline for all policy bills to pass out of committee in their chamber of origin. Numerous gun control bills have passed out of committee and remain active, including two of the most egregious bills that are awaiting a floor vote in both chambers. Please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OPPOSE 2240/6077 and 1315/6294.

House Bill 2240 and Senate Bill 6077 ban the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen and ten rounds of ammunition respectively. These limitations are strongly supported by the Governor and the Attorney General. These so called “high capacity” magazines are in fact standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting. Restricted magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense. HB 2240 has been pulled from the Rules Committee and is now eligible to receive a floor vote at any time!

House Bill 1315 and Senate Bill 6294 requires onerous government red tape and further training to obtain a Concealed Pistol License. Mandatory training requirements are yet another cost prohibitive measure intended to ensure that lower income Americans are barred from defending themselves.

Again, please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OPPOSE 2240/6077 and 1315/6294.
