Stop Proposed Gun Law in Washington

Washington Gun Owners - Protect Your Firearm Rights!

Please contact legislators in opposition to Senate Bill 5343

Here's a summary of what it proposes:

1. 5343 prohibits non-licensed individuals from buying, selling or trading firearms from their private collections at gun shows without conducting the exchange through a licensed firearm dealer.

2. It expands the handgun owner registration database in Washington. Under existing law, all dealer handgun sales are recorded with the Department of Licensing who maintains a database of Washington handgun owners. Private buyers will now be included.

3. It establishes state fees (in effect, a GUN TAX) for the background checks and, of course, dealers would charge an additional fee for the time and effort it takes them to facilitate transactions.

Contact the Senate Judiciary Committee members and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5343 and ANY restriction on private firearm transactions!!

Those laws sound downright Californian! Don't let it happen to you. It's too late for me - save yourself!

Seriously, that sucks. Hopefully people will wise up before its too late.

Looks like things have changed a bit since I left Kitsap Cty for the East Coast. Is this aimed at the WGCA show in Pull-ya-pup?

WGCA (Washington Gun Collector's Assn.) in Monroe and in "Pile-up"** are still the biggies, but there are also several other smaller ones too...

(** Puyallup, it's a local joke...)
