    Also looks bad: assault weapons ban, allowing municipalities to ban firearms in parks and recreational facilities.

    But more good. Firearms freedom act (10th amendment), allowing carry in schools for CPL holders and teachers.

    Some good things to support and to keep an eye on. Thanks for posting.

    CPL / carry in schools is a big deal for me since I'd like to be able to protect my kids.

    Also... SBRs in WA state. Please, oh please...

    A new Senate Committee of Law and Justice agenda is posted. Agenda

    I594 (bkgd check) and I591 (protect gun rights) are scheduled for a hearing on 1/29 at 1:30 pm. There is a 8:00am meeting scheduled for the 31st, but no bills listed yet.

    The shipyard is sending me to San Diego for 45 days at the end of the month. I was planning on leaving on the 30th, but if the SBR bill is scheduled for Friday I'll delay my trip to make the hearing. I really want to speak to the committee about this bill, but we need others who are ready to attend and speak. Who is ready to do this?
