HB2264 Ban on Gun Show Sales without a back ground check. Check your latest NRA Bulletin..It's a foot in the door to ban gun shows completely and eventually ban private sales. Here's a letter to start with...Pass it on. Once again the anti-gun people have wasted no time in presenting bills designed to chip away and undermine, if not eliminate the peoples rights under the Second Amendment. Im speaking of House Bill 2264 HB2264 would impose sweeping restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and set the stage for a ban on all private firearm sales in Washington State. HB2264 would require that all firearms transactions taking place at gun shows be subjected to background checks, even those occurring between family and friends. Any violations would be a gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison. If passed, gun ban advocates will no doubt use this as a lever for a ban on all private sales as well, as they have in other states. I think the basic issue we should be concerned with is the slow erosion of the rights guarantied the American People under the 2nd Amendment. I know by voting against this issue you will be once again displaying your good sense to the voters of our state by showing that you are not to be swayed by the clamoring of an emotional few and sensation seeking media. Please vote to enforce the criminal codes as they now exist. When law abiding citizens are disarmed only the criminals will have guns.
