    House Substitute Bill 1068 is passed out of with a Do-Pass recommendation. High Cap magazines, sale, manufacture, transfer and distribution by any in Washington State. The amendment for 15 rounds was adopted so most handgun magazines are going to be OK. Yeah, we lost less but is that a victory or less of an bubblegum-Whooping?

    I didn't say they would win or that I would lay down. I said they would come for them. Big difference my friend. ;)

    It's delaying tactic to break up a unified firearms community. They are hoping to peel off the handgun centric folks, since some of them will feel "safe". In 1 or 2 legislative sessions or a single ballot initiative they will "re-address" it, exactly like New Jersey did. This is a loss. A loss for us all.

    Well... we did this time.
    Damn! I only hope it's enough time for me to get that Kel-Tec CP33!

    What about SB 5340 and HB 1286?

    Did you not notice a couple things from the hearing (not just limited to magazines)?:

    1. There were a SEVERAL more pro 2A organizations represented, not the least of which was the WSPRA...Washington State Pistol & Rifle Association (WA.'s NRA branch) and young shooters. Folks are being pulled off the fence and into ACTION. If they're there about one issue, they'll be learning about the others. Combine that with the sheriff's coming out in opposition to 1639...

    2. Our side presented far better than the last couple of hearings IMHO...our panels spoke clearly and were much better organized. Youth shooters, talking about competitive shooting/the Olympics...even several of the representatives on the committee presented strongly for us. Our side wasn't nearly as on its heels as before and it wasn't just 20 seconds of 'discussion'...OK, let's vote... 4 yeah, 3 no...OK it passes.

    Watch that crack they're trying to innocuously put in preemption...that's just laying the foundation to build upon.

    Keep this momentum going, building...there's lots of work to be done...share, call, email, repeat!!

    Internal division is definitely a goal by anti-gunners, even if only accidentally achieved at times. I think NJ is indeed an apt comparison. They are playing the long-game and are winning the 'hearts and minds' of 'our elite betters'.

    Look at bump stocks or look at typical Fudd silence (or even enthusiasm) when all they attack are ARs or 'high-cap mags'. Fudd's only need 6 rounds in their revolver and a 20 round box for their 3 round fixed-magazine bolt-gun... and they are covered.

    A worthwhile watch from former noted talk-radio guy Ken "The Black Avenger" Hamblin... and a reminder of just how big a hole this man left when he disappeared for all those years.

    So, despite things like the momentum building, easy links being provided to contact legislators/committee members, specific pro-2A legislators being identified for contact (who will hopefully hear), sheriff's & DA's coming out against 1639, more 2A groups getting involved, workshops occurring, a particularly bad bill just being defeated in our neighboring state to the south, etc...your 'solution' is to say 'Screw that...I'm taking care of myself.':rolleyes:

    For those perhaps unfamiliar, The Man in the Arena, Theodore Roosevelt, 1910:

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

    bubblegum, you’re right. It exempts .22 *tube* mags and tube mags on lever actions.

    I *think* that's :rolleyes:example of running into the 'automatic rev limiter' for certain terms otherwise left out of the forum communiques....and that term is inserted as a gentle :eek:placeholdero_O until we can reconsider our descriptive terms.
