Washington: Bill to Increase Government Red Tape For CPL May Be Voted On Soon

Senate Bill 5174 has been pulled from the Rules Committee and is now eligible for a floor vote.  SB 5174 would make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to obtain a Concealed Pistol License.  Please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 5174.  Click the “Take Action” button to contact your state Senator.

Senate Bill 5174, sponsored by Senator Guy Palumbo (D-1), would increase the time, cost, and government red tape that law-abiding adults must go through in order to obtain a Concealed Pistol License by requiring a mandatory training course that meets arbitrary standards.  Adding additional barriers to law-abiding citizens who wish to exercise a constitutional right will not improve public safety.  Concealed carry permit holders have consistently demonstrated themselves to be one of the most law-abiding segments of the population in Washington and across the country.  Hindering them from being able to defend themselves and their families would not affect criminals who do not obey the law.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 5174.
