I sent this email last week. It was part troll, part desperation and part curiosity to see what would happen. My original email: Hi, Congratulations on passing I-594. Many recreational shooters I know have questions about the do's and don'ts during shooting activities. I visited the WA attorney general's website, but was dismayed to learn that there's no official opinion. http://www.atg.wa.gov/page.aspx?id=32433#.VHzq1_lzTLU Specifically people are asking about letting a friend shoot their gun at a range, or loaning for the day, etc. There's also concern about professional instructors loaning or renting guns during training courses. I don't know anyone with any political clout at the WA state level, so am hoping you might help clarify some of these points, or at the very least pressure AG Bob Ferguson to make a public opinion. Thanks Their Response: Dear XXXX, As of yet, there has not been an official release from the Attorney General. However, I'd like to set your mind at ease in the meantime regarding training courses and ranges. You can let a friend use your (or anyone else's weapon) at the range, you may use each other's weapons while hunting together, and you may utilize weapons during training courses. These are all exemptions and none of the laws surrounding these practices were changed by 594. None of those things can be considered 'transfers' and they are not covered by 594. Hope that makes things clear. Warmly, Emily I was a little suspicious at this seemingly "good news", so I wanted to make sure this was a credible answer. I wondered, who is this Emily person?
