Oppose state’s AG and his anti-gun legislation

Our misguided attorney general, Bob Ferguson, has put us all at risk due to his lack of understanding of the nature of criminality. At his request, HB 1068 was filed, which would ban “high-capacity” magazines, those holding more than 10 rounds. He would hamper law enforcement and the millions of CPL holders who protect us on a daily basis, not to mention the millions more who keep firearms for home protection. The bill would allow grandfathering possession of large capacity magazines but would effectively still ban them because they would have to be locked up separately from the firearms at home. All AR-15 style firearms use 15- to 30-round magazines, 10-round magazines are the exception. It is impossible to go into what is wrong with this law in a 250-word letter, but Ferguson will get this implemented! There is no Republican majority coalition to stop him in the current Legislature.

In my opinion we need a recall of the Ferguson now! This bill would have the effect of making felons out of a large fraction of Washington residents, just as it has done in California, which has lost significant population to other states. It is unenforceable and will simply divide citizens along ideological lines without accomplishing anything of value. Time for Ferguson to go! Let him run for vice president in the Inslee presidential administration! Wouldn’t that be a great ticket!

Look up and read this bill, the media won’t publish it and it will become law before we know it. Look up HB 1068 online.

Without action, Washington's drug possession law will expire July 1, leaving no penalty in state law and leaving cities free to adopt a hodgepodge of local ordinances.
