This is from Carnaby and others from another forum just trying to get the ball rolling again. I've contacted Sen Hargrove and my own Senator without much luck. We need more support to get this done please pass this on. As many of you know, Washington State has strange laws regarding ownership and usage of firearm sound suppressors, also known in lay terms as "silencers." Currently, if we follow federal law, we are allowed by Washington State law to own sound suppressors (which I'll simply refer to as "suppressors" from here forward). We may also mount them on functional firearms. However, and here's the strange part, we may not actually fire any bullets through them. This is according to RCW 9.41.250(1)(c). You might start by inquiring with Senator Hargrove about the legislation he proposed to get this changed a few years back, and why it didn't go through. Here's his contact info: www.leg.wa.gov/senate/hargrove/ And info relating to the bill with regards to changing restrictions on firearm noise suppressors, which he introduced in 2005: It didn't get very far, maybe we can bring it back. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/Summ...5167&year=2005 which would have amended RCW 9.41.250 to read: (3) Uses any contrivance or device for suppressing the noise of any firearm unless the suppressor is legally registered and possessed in accordance with federal law, is guilty of a gross misdemeanor punishable under chapter 9A.20 RCW. Yeah, it's a stupid law the way things stand. At least you can get one here, though you've gotta at least as far as Oregon or Idaho to legally use it. Lets Get it Done! BTW I was thinking of making some shirts with that picture on it!
