Today, January 8th, the Washington State Legislature begins the 2024 legislative session. Once again, the session starts with anti-gun bills already pre-filed and ready to go.
House Bill 1902 and Senate Bill 6004 require individuals obtain a permit with live-fire training to be able to exercise the right to purchase firearms. A similar permitting scheme was recently held unconstitutional by an Oregon judge.
House Bill 1903 further victimizes otherwise law-abiding gun owners and places the liability on crime victims for theft of their own property by penalizing failing to report missing or stolen firearm within 24 hours.
House Bill 2054 rations Second Amendment rights by limiting firearm dealers from transferring or selling more than one firearm per 30 day period to an individual.
House Bill 2118 seeks to drive gun stores and other licensed firearm dealers out of business by imposing expensive, one-size-fits-all requirements.
Senate Bill 5985 codifies the unconstitutional provisions of Washington’s recent ban on commonly-owned firearms into the section of state code on background checks.
