Washington state residents NRA alert

From NRA-ILA:

On January 31st, the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee voted to pass bills to ban most standard capacity magazines and make it more difficult to obtain a CPL. These bills will now go to the Rules Committee awaiting being pulled to the House floor. Please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 2240 and 1315.

House Bill 2240, as passed out of committee, bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds of ammunition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting. These magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.

House Bill 1315 requires onerous government red tape and further training to obtain a Concealed Pistol License.

Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 2240 and 1315.

Yours in Freedom,

  1. Very short trial. Did you take an oath of office to uphold the constitution of the United States? Yes. Would you read for the jury the definition of infringement please?
    1) The action of breaking the terms of a law, agreement, etc.. Violation.
    2) The action of limiting or undermining something.
    Is this your signature on the bill to limit firearms magazines. Yes.
    Prosecution rests.

    • Did you take an oath of office to uphold the constitution of the United States?

      AND the Washington State Constitution:

      SECTION 24 RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself, or the state, shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain or employ an armed body of men.

      “shall not be impaired” is potentially a stronger protection than “shall not be infringed”…

  2. The willful and purposeful chilling of a right is as egregious a crime as totally violating it.

    Violating a right, whether all at once or in Progressive stages, is still a crime.

    If I stole your car one piece at a time I would be no less guilty than if I stole it all in one piece. Perhaps I’d be more guilty, having committed a thousand offenses rather than one. Further; thus having demonstrated my calculating determination to steal your car, piece-by-piece over a lengthy period of time, I could never use the defense of crime-of-passion or momentary lapse of my otherwise good judgement, nor plead other extenuating circumstances.

    And if you caught me half-way through the process of stealing your car piece-by-piece, then surely I could be prosecuted just as readily.

    Allen, and Allen; I’m speaking to you. NRA; I’m speaking to you. Let’s see, once and for all, if you’re serious or if you’re only interested in perpetual fund raising and title. I think I already know the answer, but you could surprise me greatly if you wanted to.

    Jesus tells us to give unto Cesar what is Cesar’s, but when “Cesar” operates ostensibly under a constitution which promises our liberty, calling it “The Supreme Law of The Land” then is it not that constitution which we should obey as “Cesar” in America?

    Thus it would seem to me that our obligation under the law is to ignore any “gun control” (criminal encouragement) law, at least up until such time as the second amendment is repealed by the representatives of the People via the prescribed constitutional amendment process. Until then, any politician, cop, or judge, et al, who actively supports anti-Bill of Rights measures, either openly or clandestinely, is a criminal-at-large, a fugitive from justice, and “giving unto Cesar” would require that we arrest and prosecute any such person at the earliest opportunity, for surely the liberty and even therefore the very lives of our fellow countrymen and our progeny depend on it!

    It must be pointed out also that similar language to the following exists in most contracts;
    “Failure to enforce any provision in this agreement (the constitution in this case) in the past is not to be taken as approval of said violations. All provisions herein, and the rights of enforcement thereof, thus remain at all times in full force.”

    They cannot “have their cake and eat it too”. The authoritarians in either Party cannot pretend to be bound by the constitution when sworn into office, and then ignore it most of the time after. Either they should openly declare themselves enemies of the state, or shape up and fall in line with the letter and spirit of the constitution, or resign immediately and beg forgiveness. The longer they try to play it both ways, pretending to be under the constitution while striving doggedly to undermine it, the more severe will be their consequences.

    God save us.

  3. As I wrote to my state representatives and senator – magazine limits to stop “gun violence” are like trying to stop drunk driving fatalities by requiring anyone with a car to remove one of the wheels. It infringes on the proper operation of the car, will not be complied with, and increases the responsible gun owner’s disdain for the law. Which is probably the real motive anyway.

  4. Will the Supreme Court decide that “in common use,” in Heller’s description for firearm possession under the 2nd Amendment, applies to magazine capacity? Because doing this over and over and over again state by state is tedious.

  5. They don’t give a shit.

    Dear Mr. Hardin,

    Thank you for your input and advocacy regarding gun legislation. Having grown up in a rural community in a home where my dad
    was a responsible gun owner, I am in favor of well-regulated, common sense legislation. Additionally, I am in favor of
    temporarily restricting access to guns from people who seek to do harm to themselves or others. The voters in my district have
    repeatedly voted in favor of gun regulation initiatives that result in higher safety. I will remain focused on how to protect
    innocent victims of gun violence.

    • Time for a new “they”.
      Find your legislators at https://app.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/
      Then feed each name into the search at top of:
      https://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page
      their “expiration date” shows at “Term ends” on the right under their picture. You (we) have that long to get to know their opposition party in the area, kick them to find RKBA compatible candidates that can win, and then help make that happen. Voters control the process.
