Here we go.
Please spread this far and wide,
There is a video at the link I can't embed but you have seen the same scenario before, the tearful parents asking why anyone needs an assault weapon, the AG saying he is going to "Do Something" but no freaking specifics, yadda yadda yadda. According to the video they are targeting the AR 15 specifically but that will expand as sure as I am sitting here.
Anything that has Evil Black Rifle written on it will be banned because these people can't be bothered to educate themselves.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson is proposing a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.Ferguson, joined by a broad coalition of over 50 community leaders and elected officials, announced on Wednesday that he will submit agency request legislation in the 2017 session.
The bill would ban weapons like the AR-15 used to kill three teens and wound another at a party in Mukilteo in July.“The recent tragedy in Mukilteo drives home the need to act with urgency to end the availability of weapons designed with only one purpose — to kill people,” Ferguson said.“I have a duty to protect the public, as well as uphold the constitution. My proposal will ban some of the deadliest weapons, while respecting the Second Amendment right to bear arms.”
Ferguson’s proposal targets only sales, grandfathering current gun ownership. The legislation would not require registration of existing weapons.
The proposal will be modeled after successful assault weapon laws in other states, such as New York and Connecticut. The courts have determined these states’ bans to be constitutional.
KIRO 7 asked Ferguson’s office what specific features would be banned under this law. A representative said that the details would be worked out during the legislative process.
Diana Pinto, the owner of Pinto’s Gun Shop, said assault weapons may be getting banned for the wrong reasons.
“They look bad, they look scary. And so that’s what they kind of hone in on, when they don’t realize that again, there’s a lot of firearms out there that maybe don’t look as scary, but they’re just as deadly. They can have as many rounds,” she said.
Pinto would rather see a focus on preventing those who are mentally ill from possessing any guns at all.
“If they can’t get an assault weapon, they would probably get something else, which is horrible. But stop that person from getting something – not just limiting access to one avenue,” Pinto said.
During the 90s, there was a national ban on assault weapons as well as a limit to 10 rounds of ammunition. Pinto said she felt that ban did not have a significantly positive effect.
"A recent poll"...
You have to know those demographics were cherry picked.
The game is on here now.
It is time to get your hands on as much equipment as you can before these people have their way.
There is going to be big money spent on this by the gun grabbers and after the last anti gun law that had Bloomberg and his ilk paying for the media blitz I have no doubts this will pass too.
The Puget Sound area is San Francisco North now and has more say in what happens in this state than the other three quarters of it combined.
