Well, it looks like I-594 is going to pass, mostly thanks to King County. ( I predict that most of eastern Washington will vote against this abortion). So after it passes what will happen? Not much. A few selective examples will be made, almost exclusively in the Seattle area, of innocent law-abiding citizens trying to buy or sell guns without a BG check. A few training businesses will stop providing firearms to students because the "transfer" language of the law is so opaque. Prices at "rent-a-gun" ranges will go up by $20-$30. And not one, single criminal will ever see one day in jail due to this law. I will still loan my .22 target pistol to my friend to teach his kid how to shoot. My buddies will still loan out their guns to friends for various target shooting or hunting outings. We will ignore the law because there's no way to prove a violation unless you are stupid enough to admit that you're in violation. Because the law has no mechanism for its enforcement, which is what made this abortion of a ballot proposition so ludicrous on its face, you can bet that the next step, and it won't take long, will be a universal gun registry. Count on all these things happening. Crime will not go down, murder will not go down, armed robbery will not go down. This is what our enemies already know. They don't care because they aren't interested in any of these things. They only want to make it harder for you to get a gun legally, which was what all this was about in the first place. I agree with Alan Gottlieb that "Universal BG checks are inevitable" because only people who really understand the issue are opposed to it, and we are a small minority of voters. Our only real hope in WA is that we can put a measure repealing the statute up for 2016 when we will get more support and have two years in which no results have been shown to make our case. Absent that a vain hope that I-591 also passes, which I think is less than likely. Nevertheless, I think this is among the last gasps of the gun grabbers. As more people own and shoot guns, as the sport continues to grow with the prospect of a Hillary presidency spurring panicked gun-buyers, there is going to be less and less support for these measures popularly. I'm trying to be a realist here. It sickens me that 594 will likely pass. But I take comfort in the fact that this law is 99% unenforceable and that the support for such measures is only likely to decline over time. So keep on keeping on brothers and Sisters. We aren't beaten by a long shot, regardless of one ballot measure. Sure, it's a setback. So was Plessy v Ferguson. That didn't stop civil rights activists from making their case and eventually the ruling was overturned. Keep the faith. It's probably going to pass. That's a bad thing, but a lot less bad than the grabbers would like it to be.
