So unlike the AWB and licensing bills, this one still seems to be moving forward. Looking to the seasoned advocates who know the process well. What's next, and do I keep calling my Reps/Senators?

Yes, please continue calling and writing!

Write and call the office of the sponsoring representative Ruth Kagi (D) 32nd district, 320 John L. O'Brien Building PO Box 40600 Olympia, WA 98504 (360) 786 - 7910 ruth.kagi@leg.wa.gov

Write and call the office of the co-sponsor of the bill, Laura Jinkins (D), 308 John L. O'Brien Building PO Box 40600 Olympia, WA 98504 (360) 786 - 7930 laurie.jinkins@leg.wa.gov

In addition to calling and emailing the above, continue to call and email your representatives and make appointments to meet them! You will get 15 minutes of their undivided attention speaking face to face. That will help us tremendously.

If you are adamantly opposed to the entire idea of 1122, then drive on! However, you might want to know that the current form of 1122 is much different than it's original form. You might want to actually read the bill in it's current form.
 
From the GOAL post:

The House version of the safe storage bill DID pass, but in amended and watered down form. It’s still a bad bill, as well as totally unnecessary – current reckless endangerment law already covers the topic. Unfortunately almost all pro-gun bills died as well.

got it. still learning the process. Will have a look at the watered down version.

To echo what another person posted on his Facebook page, I was wary that even in a legal defensive gun use situation, if the police determined your gun was "unsecured" based on 1122 definitions, you could still get prosecuted.

Nope, in fact there is a provision for a 'child' under 18 to use the unsecured firearm in self-defense as positive defense against a reckless endangerment charge.

That's not to say I think 1122 is perfection in itself, but it is reasonable that people should take positive action to keep their TV-saturated idiot kids from running around with loaded guns. In our house dad kept control of the ammo and that handled the problem.
