Vote No On Initiative 594

I-594 is incredibly shady:

Initiative 594 is a measure that will appear on Washington’s November ballot. A universal handgun registration scheme, I-594 would regulate transfers — not just sales — of all firearms in the Evergreen State. That means if a friend wants to try your gun at the range, you would have to broker the transfer through a gun dealer, with all accompanying fees, paperwork, use taxes and, in the case of handguns, state registration. I-594 also doubles the state waiting period on handgun sales from 5 to 10 days and extends it to every private transfer of a handgun. Learn more at http://VoteNo594.com.

NRA-LogoI love how politicians think this is going to do anything to hurt criminals.

The NRA did a nice job on this video… everyone needs to see it.

Thoughts?

I find it absolutely hilarious that Washington state managed to legalize marijuana for the same reasons why they want more regulations for firearms.

well now, that is a nice video, too bad I’m in Oregon. Passed it on to a few of my neighbors in the north.

594 is a huge pile of shit. also requires permission from sheriff or chief of police to get a handgun.

Doesn’t seem like the NRA is being all that honest either:

From pages 7, 8 & 9
“(4) This section does not apply to:
… (f) The temporary transfer of a firearm (i) between spouses or
domestic partners; (ii) if the temporary transfer occurs, and the
firearm is kept at all times, at an established shooting range
authorized by the governing body of the jurisdiction in which such
range is located; (iii) if the temporary transfer occurs and the
transferee’s possession of the firearm is exclusively at a lawful
organized competition involving the use of a firearm, or while
participating in or practicing for a performance by an organized group
that uses firearms as a part of the performance;”

If we’re at a shooting range and my buddy wants to try my gun, we’re okay. The video seems to imply otherwise.
If my buddy comes over to my house on his way to the range and wants to borrow my gun to try it out, we’re breaking the law.
If we’re in the woods shooting targets (not hunting) and my buddy wants to shoot my gun, we’re breaking the law.

Only if the range is established. So if it’s a home range of just shooting on rural land it’s illegal. Stop thinking everyone lives in the city.
