Yesterday, the House voted 56-42 on the bill’s final passage, to concur with the Senate on House Bill 1240, a comprehensive ban on most commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and firearm parts that exceeds the provisions of California’s ban. It will now go to Governor Jay Inslee’s desk for his consideration. Please click here to contact Gov. Inslee and ask him to VETO HB 1240.
NRA currently has lawsuits working their way through the federal courts against the similar bans that California, Delaware, and Illinois have enacted. Such bans on commonly-owned firearms that are popular with law-abiding citizens for legitimate purposes fly in the face of the text, history, and tradition of Second Amendment rights.
