Washington: Two Anti-Gun Bills Pre-Filed for 2024 Legislative Session

Pre-filing of bills for the 2024 legislative session started this week in Washington. Among the dozens of bills that were pre-filed, there are two prominent anti-gun bills; HB 1902 and HB 1903.

HB 1902 will implement a permit to purchase system in Washington, which will require Washingtonians to receive government permission to exercise a constitutionally protected right. The system will require mandatory live fire training prior to purchasing a firearm and the creation of a government registry of personally identifiable information, including fingerprinting and a waiver of medically protected information.

HB 1903 will penalize law-abiding gun owners who are the victims of a crime by placing a civil liability and a $1,000 fine on gun owners who are the victim of theft and requires mandatory reporting of the theft or loss of a firearm within 24 hours to law enforcement.

The NRA was in Olympia this week preparing for the 2024 session, and more anti-gun bills are expected. Please sign up for NRA alerts below and stay tuned to the NRA-ILA website to keep up to date on the upcoming battle in Washington.
