This was is the Seattle news this morning. I know Brian Judy quite well (he used to be the Idaho liason for NRA-ILA). If the tone of what amounts to a personal attack on Brian wasn’t so venomous I’d think this was funny: the only group of people I’ve ever heard Brian express intolerance toward is anti-rights bigots.
Washington already has registration of handguns sold at retail. While the word “registration” doesn’t appear anywhere in the text of I594, the initiative would extend all the state requirements for retail handgun sales to private transactions- thus creating complete registration. This ain’t about “background checks”.
