Can Washington state residents buy Rifles in Oregon?
You should be able to buy a hunting rifle but I doubt any dealer in Oregon would take the chance.
I can see the AG in Washington going after other states for rifle purchases like they did over sales tax on the internet.
I voted yes because if a WA law says no, then it is unconstitutional, for sure! You should do it, get arrested, then sue the state of Washington all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States...from prison.
Or just follow the unconstitutional law if you're a wuss. That's an option, I suppose.
