Washington: Senate Works Late to Pass Bans on "Ghost Guns" and Firearms from More Places – Contact your Lawmakers Now!

Last night, the Washington Senate passed a pair of anti-gun bills that would do nothing to prevent crime and only target the actions of law-abiding gun owners, House Bill 1705 and House Bill 1630.  House Bill 1705 was passed by a narrow vote of 26-23 and now heads to the desk of Governor Jay Inslee for his consideration.  House Bill 1630 was amended and was passed by a 28-20-1 vote. HB 1630 now heads back to the House for a concurrence vote.  Please click both of the “Take Action” buttons below to ask Governor Inslee to VETO House Bill 1705, and your State Representative to OPPOSE House Bill 1630.


“GHOST GUNS” BAN – House Bill 1705 further restricts the centuries-old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use and self-defense by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law.  It seeks to prohibit private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by Americans to make their own firearms for self-defense, sport and hobby, and from possessing currently legal firearms that don’t have serial numbers. This bill would make lawfully built firearms retroactively illegal if built after 2019. 


BAN FIREARMS FROM ELECTION-RELATED PLACES, SCHOOL BOARD AND MUNICIPAL MEETINGS – House Bill 1630 prohibits open carry at school board meetings, municipal meetings and election-related places. Further, HB 1630 bans all firearms at ballot counting centers, including by CPL Holders.

Again, please click both of the “Take Action” buttons to ask Governor Inslee to VETO House Bill 1705, and your State Representative to OPPOSE House Bill 1630.
