    THIS IS A COORDINATED EFFORT TO PASS AMMUNITION SERIALIZING IN SEVERAL KEY STATES, NO DOUBT WITH THE GOAL OF FORCING IT ONTO ALL OTHER STATES EVENTUALLY AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL OR SIMPLY BY FORCING AMMO MAKERS TO TOTALLY SWITCH PRODUCTION. LINKS TO THE ACTUAL TEXT OF THE BILLS IS AT THE WEBSITE FOR ELEVEN STATES.<BR>

    Thank you for your e-mail message opposing House Bill 3359 - Concerning
    pistol ammunition. As of today, the bill is still in the House
    Judiciary Committee. The good news is that the bill failed to receive a
    public hearing before the cut off period, therefore, the bill is dead.
    I searched for other similar bills in the Senate, but found non matching
    the language of HB 3359.

    Please know that I do not support this bill and will oppose the measure
    if by some miracle the bill is moved out of committee and to the floor
    for a vote. This is a rare occurrence, and I don't anticipate that it
    will happen.

    Again, I hope that you will continue to let me know your views.

    Sincerely,

    Senator Dan Swecker
    Washington State Senate
    20th Legislative District

    Brian in Oregon in the Map there are 12 states in red. Arizona, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington, and Massachusetts. Is there a specific reason for this or just and over site?

    Hmmm, the text failed to mention Massachusetts. I don't know if they mistakenly colored it red, or if they forgot to add the legislation to their list.
