I just got this alert from the NRA via email and thought I would pass it along here:



Gun Show Restrictions Proposed in Washington State!
Please Contact Your State Representative Today!

On Thursday, February 19 House Bill 2264 was proposed and referred to the House Judiciary Committee.

This bill would impose sweeping restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and set the stage for a ban on all private firearm sales in Washington State. HB2264 would require that all firearms transactions taking place at gun shows be subjected to background checks, even those occurring between family and friends. Any violations would be a gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison.

If passed, gun ban advocates will no doubt call for a ban on all private sales as well, as they have in other states.

No hearing date has been scheduled and the cut-off date for bills to leave their committee is this Wednesday, February 25.

While the crossover deadline is on Wednesday, legislative rules can often be circumvented. This is a serious threat to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and it must be stopped. Please contact your State Representative and respectfully urge them to oppose this bill. Contact information can be found here.

NRA doesn't send me alerts, for some reason. I keep signing up, but nothing comes in.

I've contacted my guys.

Wow! I sent a message asking my Representatives to oppose the bill and within 5 minutes has these replies...
Butch so far the bill has not been given a hearing. Hopefully it will die this week in committee. We need to keep the pressure on the House. Thanks for the e-mail.

Thanks for writing, Butch. That's what you sent me here to do. I will not be supporting gun grabs like this, and I will stand against them.
