    I have seen this mentioned briefly here before, but it is time to bring it up again. Residents of the Soviet of Washington State, be advised that SB 6396 is in Committee and if passed will severely limit the ownership and purchase of so called assault weapons, i.e., anything that is an autoloader is a no-no, but if you register with your local police, you can keep them. But the police will have the right to do an unannounced search of your premises to be sure you are keeping it 'correctly', etc. This is not the whole bill obviously, but it is a piece of left wing loonie feel good knee jerk reaction to the police shootings that happened here around the holidays. And none of the police were killed with an 'assault weapon"! This bill is wrong on so many levels that it is a mind boggler. If you are a resident of this great state, I urge you write to Olympia today! Your future gun ownership may depend on it!

    Thanks for reading.

    Push to ban assault weapons going nowhere in Olympia
    Legislation that would ban the sale of assault weapons in Washington state will likely go nowhere this session.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday held a hearing on Senate Bill 6396, which would prohibit the sale of assault weapons, specifically semiautomatic pistols, pump-action rifles or shotguns that met certain definitions. The measure is sponsored by Sen. Adam Kline, D-Seattle.

    Kline, who is also the committee's chairman, took about 45 minutes of testimony from proponents, including police represenatives and the mother of a Seattle homicide victim, and opponents, including the National Rifle Association.

    Jeff Reading, spokesman for Senate Democrats, said in an e-mail the assault weapons measure "probably won't be voted on since it doesn't have the votes to pass out of committee."



    There are still some people with "sound minds" that live in that area of the state.

    Be ever vigilant. Enemies of Freedom are everywhere.

    For starters, don't vote for Demoncraps.
