From the NRA-ILA:
On January 13th, the Washington Senate pulled Senate Bill 5434 from the Senate Rules Committee back to the floor, where it can receive a vote at any time. SB 5434 was retained as a carry-over bill from 2019 that would expand “gun-free zones.”
Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5434.
Senate Bill 5434, sponsored by Senator Claire Wilson (D-30), would increase prohibited areas where law-abiding citizens cannot possess firearms, including CPL holders carrying for self-defense. The bill extended “gun-free zones” to public parks, libraries, and child care centers before being amended to only apply to child care centers. Anti-gun Senators can easily amend the bill to add more areas when it comes up for vote. Your voice is needed in this critical fight for our freedom and safety.
In addition to leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless against criminals who ignore arbitrary boundaries, child care centers would be required to publicly indicate they are “gun-free zones” by posting signs outside the facilities.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 5434.
It’s also expect that the Senate Law and Justice Committee will be hearing on SB 6077 and an as yet unnumbered bill that would increase red tape and training requirements for concealed pistol licenses.
Senate Bill 6077 seeks to ban the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of standard capacity magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition. This measure is strongly supported by the Governor and the Attorney General, and would severely limit your ability to defend yourself in a self-defense situation.
CPL Red Tape Bill, while this bill has not yet been filed and given a number, it is expected to increase government red tape and training requirements in order to obtain a Concealed Pistol License. This will be a different bill than the carryover bill heard in 2019.
