You can read the original announcement posts for these bills here from another comrade https://www.reddit.com/r/SocialistRA/comments/105i568/washington_state_weapons_sales_ban_protect
The bills are as follows
Assault weapon ban House bill: https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?billnumber=1240&year=2023
Allows for almost any AR part to be regulated some how even though that would never be possible.
HB 1143 / SB 5211 (OPPOSE) – Requires 10 day waiting period on all firearms; requires the background check is completed before transfer; enacts requirements for permits, fingerprinting, and safety training to purchase a firearm
HB 1144 (OPPOSE) – Largely similar to HB 1143. I haven’t looked in depth at the differences between HB 1443 and HB 1444
HB 1130 / SB 5078 (OPPOSE) – Enables the attorney general’s office to sue “firearm industry members” (FFLs, firearm makers, etc.) under the guise of being a “public nuisance”
HB 1178 (OPPOSE) – Overcomplicates state firearm laws, meaning each county/town/city could enact their own gun control laws more strict than state law
SB 5006 (OPPOSE) – modifying the voluntary waiver of firearms rights
They have been introduced to reading which means state representatives and senators are looking through them in the committee, there will be changes so you can both critique individual faults of the bills as well as the overall goals and failures of gun control.
Please write something to them even if you haven’t yet every message counts, just be aware the information you share is 100% available to public records.
