Gun Rights

Tomorrow, February 16th, the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on SB 5985, concerning background checks, and SB 5444, concerning sensitive places.

SB 5985 codifies the unconstitutional provisions of Washington’s recent ban on commonly-owned firearms into the section of state code on background checks.

SB 5444 increases “gun-free zones” in many publicly accessible areas. Nothing in the bill requires these “sensitive places” have any measures to protect citizens and prevent armed criminals from ignoring this arbitrary boundary and entering, such as metal detectors, security guards, or a police presence. There have been considerable amendments to the bill since arriving in the House, but the NRA is still in strong opposition.

Again, please consider participating in the hearing and click the Take Action button above to ask committee members to OPPOSE these bills.
