    You can comment directly using the link below if you can't make it to the hearing on Tuesday.

    Remember, this is an initiative but can be considered by the legislature for a vote any time. At least two Republicans are voting to support it, which is all the margin it needs. If WAGR is successful, this will be passed this session and there will be no initiative to vote on in November.

    Please be respectful. Point out this bill is flawed, doesn't stop criminals and just puts law abiding gun owners in jail.

    594 - 2013-14

    This bill could make machine guns legal in WA though. In their definition there is no wording of "one shot per pull of the trigger"

    (15) "Machine gun" means any firearm known as a machine
    gun, mechanical rifle, submachine gun, or any other mechanism or instrument not requiring that the trigger be pressed for each shot and having a reservoir clip, disc, drum, belt, or other separable mechanical device for storing, carrying, or supplying ammunition which can be loaded into the firearm, mechanism, or instrument, and fired therefrom at the rate of five or more shots per second.


    According to this any gun with a rate of fire 599rds/min or less is not a machine gun.................


    Guess I was wrong. I forgot that is how WA originally worded it. There is no change on that part from the current wording.

    Yes. In fact, Pam Roach called and left me a message saying she received my e-mail asking her to oppose I-594 and stated that "she will do everything she can to defend our 2nd amendment right". That was great to here and hats off to her for being so responsive! She also asked if I would be interested in being added to her sportsman caucus -- which I will gladly do.

    Take a few minutes and write your legislators... they need to hear from all of us.:yes:

    Everyone on this board that calls Washington home needs to do this, now.

    My sources tell me the pro 594 forces are winning the legislative contact war at this time. Time to ramp it up folks!

    You need to use the website which locates your district. If you are outside WA, they generally don't care.

    Any word yet on what volume of contacts they are getting for and against? Not that it will sway most of them.

    From tvw.org

    Rep. Jamie Pedersen (D-Seattle), the prime sponsor of House Bill 1588, said supporters are still searching for three more votes in order to pass the legislation out of the House. Pedersen said they had 47 firm votes, and six or seven lawmaker on the fence.
