    I read an article that says something about some expansion of exemptions but it doesn't give details. I don't have a link to the actual bill.

    Washington Legislature won't be voting on licenses for assault weapons

    one of the things I have seen recently was to exempt cpl holders that would certainly be a good start to fixing it!

    I know I am not the only NRA/I LA member here, right? This should be in your inbox

    Today, the House Judiciary Committee considered substitute bills for House Bill 1387 and House Bill 1122. Thanks to your calls and emails, House Bill 1387, and its substitute bill that we reported on yesterday, didn’t receive a vote and have officially died in committee having failed to pass before the deadline. Unfortunately, a Substitute for House Bill 1122 was passed out of committee and will soon be on the House floor where it will await full consideration. It is more important than ever that you contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE the Substitute for House Bill 1122.

    click-here-take-action.gif

    The Substitute for House Bill 1122 would require the locking up of one’s firearms or else they would potentially face reckless endangerment charges. Further, under this bill the penalty for a reckless endangerment charge involving a gun storage violation would amount to a Class C Felony. This intrusive government legislation invades people’s homes and forces them to render their firearms useless in a self-defense situation by locking them up. House Bill 1122 is a solution in search of a problem.

    Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE the Substitute for House Bill 1122.

    *****

    While your NRA-ILA has been on the ground in Olympia continuously working hard with pro-gun legislators to defeat these outrageous anti-gun bills, it is thanks to your continued contact with your state legislators that makes all the difference. Please contact those state Representatives that voted against House Bill 1122 in the House Judiciary Committee and thank them for voting to defend your Second Amendment rights. Those who voted against House Bill 1122 are listed below:

    Rep. Jay Rodne
    jay.rodne@leg.wa.gov

    Rep. Paul Graves
    paul.graves@leg.wa.gov

    Rep. Matt Shea

    Common tactic these days is to draft up a "swing for the bleachers" proposal and hope for a mass shooting.

    Then if it fails, propose a "compromise" bill which is the one they actually wanted all along.

    "Hope for"? Color me paranoid, but I think they actively and deliberately tee up spree-killers...

    I am so sick of the attacks on our second amendment rights in the name of crime reduction just as I know all of you are. I encourage all Washington residents reading this message to contact the supporters listed above. Below is what I sent. Feel free to copy if you so desire:

    Dear Representative [Insert name here]

    I wanted to take a moment and extend my thanks for your support in voting to defend my second amendment rights along with all of the other law abiding citizens in the State of Washington that would have been negatively impacted by HB 1122 had it made it through the process and became law.

    There seems to be a designated campaign against gun owners in the State in the name of crime reduction. However bad legislation like HB 1122 will not reduce crime or save lives; it will instead further make it difficult for law abiding citizens like myself to be able to enjoy our hobbies of target shooting and hunting without running astray of the law.

    Thank you again for your support!

    Sincerely,

    Glad to hear the bills did not move forward. Oregon would follow WA if they did pass and blame it on Trump or the Russian's. :D

    Lets hope some azz-hat doesnt copy and paste the language on an initiative and put it up for King County to ram down our throat.

    I think its funny that people in law enforcement, and I would say a good majority of the people who actually deal with criminals, don't want gun bans. Sure, a bureaucrat azz-kisser who gets appointed chief by someone like Mayor Murray might. Or, a prospective suck-azz. But the rank and file know what report they'd rather write. Dead bad guy!

    You've got that right. Any infringement of ANY kind is just that... infringement. Never give an inch!

    :D It really depends on the school and the teacher. I know when get I a chance to teach early US History I normally spend about a month on The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. Actually this last week, in 7th grade geography, I spent a good part of the two periods just talking about what incredible documents they are. My co-worker has a massive amendments test that the high school students all study for. He just assigned a paper to his government class regarding the death penalty that they must address the 8th Amendment to get credit.

    I know it seems like we are few and far between :(, but there are more of us out there than you think.

    P.S. We say the Pledge of Allegiance every Monday.

    Once you get the trouble-maker jacket, life at work gets progressively more miserable. The only group that can speak with impunity is the union and they get bought off by the democrats.

    Ask Keely Hopkins on Facebook. She's the NRA-ILA grass roots coordinator for WA/OR.
