Washington state bill would make almost all gun owners criminals

Mikael Thalen, Contributor
Activist Post

Washington state Sens. Ed Murray (D),Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D) and Adam Kline (D) have introduced new gun control legislation that goes far above and beyond what anyone would consider a simple sales ban.

The bill, S.B. 5737, proposes "banning the sale of assault weapons." According to the legislation, an "assault weapon" is any semiautomatic pistol, pump-action rifle or shotgun that can accept a detachable magazine, with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds. Any magazine that accepts over 10 rounds itself will also be banned.

Also included in the definition is any rifle or shotgun with a pistol grip, a stock of any kind, a muzzle brake or muzzle compensator. The bill also prohibits the manufacturing, possessing, purchasing, selling or transferring of an assault weapons "conversion kit."

In order to continue to possess a so-called assault weapon that was owned before the assumed passing of the legislation, the person must "safely and securely" store the assault weapon and allow the sheriff of the county to, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to "ensure compliance," despite some apparent civil liberties implications related to the Fourth Amendment.

Not to mention the manpower, time and money that would be needed to search tens of thousands of Washington homes; it could prove to be very difficult and possibly divert much needed manpower from conducting actual police duties, especially in light of shrinking police department budgets.


The bill also gives no definition of what “safe and secure” storage consists of. The ownership and storage may only be done on property owned or immediately controlled by that person or while engaged in the "legal use" of the assault weapon at a duly licensed firing range. The bill does, however, exempt possession rules if the weapon is about to be "permanently relinquished to a law enforcement agency."

Any person who, after the effective date of the section, acquires title to an assault weapon by inheritance, bequest or succession must within thirty days either dispose of the weapon or have it permanently disabled so that it is incapable of discharging a projectile. Failure to comply will result in a class C felony.

Marshals, sheriffs, prison or jail wardens or their deputies, or other law enforcement officers of the state or another state will be exempt. Members of the armed forces of the United States, National Guard and organized services, are exempt when on duty. Also, any federal agent "allowed" to own an assault weapon is exempt as well.

This legislation is similar to a bill introduced by California Sen. Diane Feinstein (D) whose legislation would ban over 120 specifically named firearms.

Others such as President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have come out recently pushing for gun control. Holder gave a stern warning to gun traffickers, despite he and President Obama being involved in Operation Fast & Furious, a program that allowed tens of thousands of firearms to be given to drug cartels that took the lives of countless Mexicans and most notably U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

The program’s supposed intent was to track where guns went in Mexico, but government emails leaked to CBS News showed that the intent appeared to be to use the resulting deaths to blame American gun owners and push gun control.

Video of Holder claiming that American's needed to be "brainwashed" to be anti-gun was also recently uncovered.

There are two other bills that are passing out of committee. One that makes all private gunsales to have a $22 dollar tax and seperate background check and a tax on ammunition of at least 1 penny a round but if you reloa d its 4 cents around penny per component.
AND NOW THIS WACKES OUT bil that I tried to tell WA owners was in the wings for after pres elected.
Yet so darn few of gun owners t to 2nd Amend rally, same as in all states. Four of hearing commitee are sponsors of bills. Bills are led by a man who was favorite of NRA.
One must remember that a republican in WA state stands just to right of Lenin and liberals erected statue of him. Lenin in Seattle.
NOYICE they give special rights to military and police and members of judiciary and security by making them exempt.
Special catagorys for those on wgose watch they let the Condtituion of all Us get tore to hell and now they sit as retired asses and tear upart the Constitution of the State of washington.
THEY ALSO will be the ones aiding in gun arrest and confiscation.
What a sorry mess but am damn glad it is way to late for a revolution.

These people are traitors and this is treason and should be dealt with accordingly. Perhaps soon real Americans will take any necessary action to prevent this. Like many millions in this country, if anything like this should ever be passed by these bastards, I will NEVER under any circumstances surrender my firearms! If you want them come and try to take them. You will get more than you bargained for

Even when these Bills are defeated, the concept still lives on like a cancer. Lead poisoning appears to be the only cure.

GOOD Strategy by anti gunners; So that the two faced spineless gun owners of the state will accept the "More Reasonable bills" offered them.
I want to be calm and collected and sound like a reasonable person just like the slugs that pass themselves of as humans do in Washington state.
Sorry lassies but could you please not squeese so hard with your thighs and let at least a few males come up for some air¿ I would just like to see if there are any left in Wa.
It is sad to say but for you lads no lasdis want get your heafs out of your ass and take a look around.
I know you were just looking for where your nuts went but they are rightt there below that thing you were playing with.
While you were on auto orgasm some little weasels have snuck up and is stealing your weapons. Drop that gun in your hand; That is for pleasure not protecting this land.
Naw never mind on second thought,go ahead and finish what ypu were doing, for you are as worthless as teats on a boar hog when it comes to protecting freedom.
I once visited a land had lots of the little man, the ones who lived in the mountains they had more guts and heart in their search for freedom tjan fo any of you who talk a lot and crawl a lot.
And to think that we sacrificed them and had to find even less capable to lill judt so you can play big man and al so you could have an easy lot.

IT seems like the OATH the law enforcement took doesn't mean anymore to law enforcement ,then it does to military people,there all cowards and refuse to abide by the oath they were given,which make them traitors,lyers and thiefs,REMEMBER when the time comes,TREASON only has one punishment,SUMMARY EXECUTION,if law enforcement refuses to arrest the TRAITORS PASSING THESE UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS,"THEIR GUILTY OF TREASON" too,DON'T be fooled by lame excuses from these people,IF they fail to arrest these politicians who are commiting treason,there all guilty of treason,or abetting TREASON,either way its SUMMARY EXECUTION FOR TRAITORS,prepare to defend your selves from traitors,cause in my opinion the cowards in BLUE WILL NEVER ABIDE BY THEIR OATH,and will try to kill you and your family......................

One good example of how politicos and NRA plays games id that the leader of the first two bills is a republican some times gun packer and received cash and other support from NRA ( he was their state poster child). And this giy received endorsements from damn near every gun group in state.
JOSE MARTI wrote on freedom but he warned of holes in the walls and snakes that wil crawl through those holes trying to end that freedom.
No he was not a citizen of the US but damn I wish he was here with us he fought for his.
He had this passage where he said that they may make mistakes and it would not be great wine but plantain wine of the common man, at least it was wine of their own making.
Same for that line Mel Gibson speaks in Patriot,the one of being ruled by tyrants thousands of miles away or the ones locally.
I for one do not worry much about vipers miles away but the damn ones near my feet I stomp upon.
Some place some state and some men and women are going to have to join together and have a snake hunt.
Just as supposedly a Saint drove the snakes out of Ireland. They then let their guard down and the Brit Vipers snuck in and it took centuries to drive them out.
The Vipers of today are far mpre deadly than those of the past, for they now have the technology that once in the house of freedom they will never be driven away.
For just as today they who constantly do the bidding and work of those who do indeed hate freedom the ones of the futures your decendents will never knowwhat was taken away.
Just be catefull whete you syep is all for those dnakes in the grass have lots of kin and hunt down for fun anyone that gets in their way.
MONSTERS EXIST, BUT THEY ARE TOO FEW IN NUMBER TO BE TRULY DANGEROUS.

MORE DANGEROUS ARE THE COMMON MEN, THE FUNCTIONARIES READY TO BELIEVE AND ACT WITHOUT ASKING QUESTIONS.
PRIMO LEVY
We need the help and wisdom of the imcommon
Man, the Bold men and women who know how to stand upon Principles and not be silent.

THE TRUTH IS REPLACED BY SILENCE,AND THE SILENCE IS A LIE.

What is scary is that they are able to pass these laws. That means that the majority of the citizens of the united States are stupid/don't care or they think this is right.

I will keep it short.

The 2nd amendment was created to protect the 1st amendment and today's modern weapons are the equivalent of the 1775 minute mans weapons. Enforce the existing laws for criminals, there are more then enough gun laws. New laws will not and would not have stopped the recent atrocities that have occurred. Leave the 2nd amendment alone!

Put the criminals in jail or on the white house front lawn like in the square in Ryiadh. Stand behind the laws that exist

Look up the term 'geomancy'. It was used by Thomas Jefferson. It is used as sorcery to acquire energy to accomplish their tasks. Was geomancy used at Sandy Hook? S. H. was referenced in the movie The dark knight rises, it is on the same ley line as the sun pyramid in Mexico, and Stonehenge. What's the ultimate goal? World-wide dictatorship under the NWO. It says as such on the $1 bill, under the all seeing eye. Remain alert and conscious of what the elite are planning. Order out of chaos. Why is the DHS purchasing billions of rounds of hollow point bullets while they attempt to take away our guns? I can't remember what puppet, either Brzezinski, Soros, or Kissinger who predicted civil war in the near future. Where did he pull that out from?

They want to disarm the public for their plan to move forward. Does this mean tptb were involved in S.H.? Looks like an offering was made to their horned god Molech.

97% of the people cannot tell you the name of their local county district supervisor or their sheriff, much less define the word legislation. Yes, some people are waking up. But they are waking up mad and disillusioned and lack the insight that they are going to have to look inside themselves for problem resolution. We are on our own. No one is coming to save us. Once a person can adequately manage the "fear of death". nothing can stop them but death.

This is a Total infringement on my Constitutional rights. I will never and should never have to let an officer into my house to inspect my guns... Fuck that. These Dumb ass People need to Realize that America Was Founded With Firearms and Firearms are a Part of This countries history. The Second Ammendment is To protect us from our own government and to Protect the First Ammendment. So What Would happen if They Revoked Your First Ammendent Rights? We wouldn't be having these chats cause our opinion would be null and Void.. That Something to Think About. Once you Start undermining The Constitution You might as Well say Good bye To America...

The posters here represent the sum total of the entire population of the State of Washington that either care or are willing to resist tyranny. You stand alone, sorry to say. Bills will be passed and, ultimately, they will be enforced, and you will be viewed by the majority as the Wacos of the world.

You spineless pu$$ies will fold like a house of cards when these gun grabbers come calling. New York, Washington, Missouri, Wisconsin, the consequences of your voting apathy is coming home to roost. Just like the Revolutionary way, only a small percentage will risk life, limb and property to fight for liberty. The rest of the free $hit army will show up at the bread lines when the EBT cards run dry.
