    Petitioners began hanging out at my local grocery stores and were attempting to get people to sign. I decided to download and read the document that is being proposed and I am EXTREMELY upset at the legislation this is shaping up to be. This video is my partial analysis of the language of the initiative and I encourage you all to read it and please share the video with your friends and lets spread the awareness about this dangerous initiative.

    Here we go. I think a lot of us knew that a fight was brewing in WA next. Just read through the text; I'll need to take another stab at it when I have more time, but I agree about being upset.

    I can't stand dishonest legislation masquerading around as something it's not. This bill has nothing but crap in it and should never see the light of day.

    Care to summarize what's wrong with the Bill for those of us that can't click on a video link at work. :D

    It's universal background checks plus firearm registration for every pistol transfer (you must have a CPL or written permission from the local LEO to purchase a pistol). If you hand your firearm to someone other than your immediate family at anywhere other than an approved gun range, you are a criminal. If you fail to register your dead spouses pistol within 60 days, you are a criminal. There's a new tax to pay for everything. There's a new state background check system. That's what I can list off the top of my head.

    Initiative is what it is and has no chance in Olympia then goes to a public vote and that will have a good chance of passing (IMOP) Remember, King county ( Seattle ) is the largest voting block in the state and it is about as anti-gun as you get. Best thing to do is vote in 2014 when it comes up and make sure your friends do the same.

    Put your boots in the ground and dig in! Gotta push that tide back, several states have already this year.

    They can only take our freedom if we let them.

    Here in Washington State we have the "pro" gun organizations offering up Initiative measure 591, titled "Protect Our Gun Rights." It all looks good other than what I noticed when I first read it when it was released. That was as follows:

    NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. A new section is added to chapter 9.41 RCW to read as follows: It is unlawful for any government agency to require background checks on the recipient of a firearm unless a uniform national standard is required.

    It is interesting that the "Protect Your Gun Rights" I-591, Section 2 "...unless a uniform standard is require." (which could be written by anyone from the EPA, or the UN) is being overlooked as a potential usurping of and forfeiting of the 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

    That video in the OP goes too far off topic to be effective. The guy really needs to get to the point in explaining the problems that are specific to I-594.

    I do appreciate the effort, but a shorter video that points out the hidden problems with the bill would pull in more of the fence sitters, whose votes we need. Thanks for your work on this.

    Here in NC we have to get a permit from the local sheriff or have a CCP. But we can get 5 purchase permits at once for $5 each and they are good forever unless you do something to fail a background check at the time of purchase. So once you have purchase permits there is no waiting period. You just buy a pistol like a long gun until your permits are gone. To be frank, I would rather wait 24 hours for purchase permits one time in 5 than have a brady waiting period on every purchase. Most counties have a purchase permit ready the next business day.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind if a few people had to wait an extra day for a purchase permit. We have one deputy that will be on desk duty for the rest of his life from a helicopter crash. Now, we have another deputy on desk duty for an indefinite length of time due to a car accident. Things going fast in the office are nice but not due to our deputies being injured. They both have a family that loves them and they are respected members of our community.

    I don't know why you'd try to tie to a national standard since it already exists in the form of the fed mandated Brady check (which also provides that national standard). The language may be intended to limit the requirements of the background check to the Brady, but that's not clearly what is being said (many state, mine included, have added a couple of bits to the minimum the Brady calls out).

    Well the problem starts when people forget that the only national standard is, ..."shall not be infringed." But here we have folks trying to impose something different and even legitimize anything other than what shall not be infringed upon. The 4473 which leads to the NICS is an infringement on what shall not be infringed upon...now we have those with the intent to completely, by state initiative, acquiesce to whomever and whatever they may come up with from the national level to infringe upon what shall not be infringed, without recourse. Does critical thinker in WA State really think that the liberal State Supreme Court will in any subsequent ruling, rule in favor any pretext of what shall not be infringed? I think not. To think otherwise is to whistle past the grave yard of all we have learned of those who would see themselves rule over free people.

    Isn't the 2nd Amendment "written permission"? In what way is this possibly Constitutional..

    "you must have a CPL or written permission from the local LEO to purchase a pistol"

    ^ This is an infringement when purchasing any firearm from an FFL. Any "new" uniform national standard, like Unversal background checks, will be infringements just as the current national standard, 4473---> NICS is an infringement.

    "Isn't the 2nd Amendment "written permission"? In what way is this possibly Constitutional.."

    ^ NO! The 2nd Amendment is an affirmation of a right, NOT permission granted by another human. One man's right cannot be owned by another, therefore cannot be given or taken. Now granted man has made paper law that punishes people for violating said man made paper law which does infringe upon a natural, God given right. To acquiesce, or compromise or think of giving up a right is wrong wrong, wrong for those who would be free.

    sporterizin, philisophically I agree, but if it wasn't written down in the Constitution, I doubt it's a right we would still have.

    And I'd rather have neither, so its a good thing I live in a free state where I can walk into a gun store and walk out with any handgun, rifle or shotgun in the store within 15 minutes. ;)

    Why? Waiting periods are nothing but an additional burden on law abiding gun owners imposed by people who would just as soon confiscate every lawfully owned gun in the country. :mad:

    I'm sorry for these LEOs, but this has what do do with the discussion of purchase permits and waiting periods? :confused:
