On Monday, February 21, the Washington Senate Law and Justice Committee is scheduled to consider two major anti-gun measures. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE the below gun control measures.
“GHOST GUNS” BAN - HB 1705 further restricts the centuries-old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use and self-defense by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law. It seeks to prohibit private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms, as well as possessing currently legal firearms that don’t have serial numbers.
BAN FIREARMS FROM ELECTION-RELATED PLACES, SCHOOL BOARD AND MUNICIPAL MEETINGS - HB 1630 prohibits any firearm at school board meetings off-campus or at municipal meetings, including CPL holders. This bill would also prohibit open-carry at election-related places, and prohibit CPL holders from ballot-counting centers.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Law and Justice Committee and ask them to Oppose House Bill 1705 and House Bill 1630.
