    Just passed the House. SB 6165. If the Senate agrees and the Governor does not veto. Form 1's will be legal!

    I believe he's referencing being able to BUILD an SBR (i.e. converting an AK or AR pistol into an NFA registered SBR). It's legal to PURCHASE an already legally built SBR (i.e. Transfer an already NFA registered SBR, or a new build from a class-3 dealer).


    Make sense now?

    Sorry to cause such a commotion, I should have clarified what I meant by "clean-up of the language of the bill passed in 2014."

    This bill will get rid of the mistakes in the language of SB 5956 and will change it to what was originally intended by the 2014 bill; which will make it "not unlawful for a person to manufacture, own, buy, sell, loan, furnish, transport, assemble, or repair, or have in possession or under control, a short-barreled rifle, or any part designed or intended solely and exclusively for use in a short-barreled rifle or in converting a weapon into a short-barreled rifle, if the person is in compliance with applicable federal law."

    Doesn't it default into law after so many days if the governor takes no action for or against?

    Yes, if Inslee doesn't sign it, it will becomes law.

    According to the WA legislature's web site, it hasn't been delivered to the Governor yet, so we are going to be in limbo for a while.

    Bill was officially delivered to the Inslee today. So the 90 day wait for implementation starts when he signs it or 20 days has past (Mar. 29th).
