Last Tuesday, January 16th, the House Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee held a public hearing on 5 anti-gun bills. The NRA was in Olympia representing our members in the state of Washington in strong opposition to each bill.
On Friday, the House Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee held an executive session and advanced the following anti-gun bills:
HB 1903 – "24-hour reporting requirement" further victimizes otherwise law-abiding gun owners and places the liability and a $1,000 fine on crime victims for theft of their own property by penalizing failing to report missing or stolen firearm within 24 hours.
HB 2021 – "Destruction of firearms by law enforcement" expands the authorized and/or required destruction of firearms held by state and local law enforcement entities from gun buy-back programs and prohibits the sale or auction of these firearms.
HB 2118 – "FFL killer" places costly onerous requirements on law-abiding FFLs that could put them at serious risk of going out of business because of the financial burden to comply.
The Committee also heard public comment on HB 1902 "permit to purchase with required live fire training" and HB 2054 "one gun per month restriction" on Tuesday, January 16th. These bills have not been scheduled for a committee vote, yet. Please contact your Representative and ask them to OPPOSE these bills by clicking the Take Action button below.
