Washington State Assault Weapons Ban, #@!!#&*

Good lord, now the GFWs are trying to saddle us law-abiding folks in Washington State with a home-grown AWB. I'm leaving the state if so. I doubt there'll be a sunset clause in this one, and once done, very difficult to undo. They'll be taking it up in a public hearing in the State legislature on Tuesday, Jan 25, 2005, at 3:30pm, so go if you can. They'll also be talking about a .50 cal gun ban, too.

Somehow we managed to elect ourselves a Democratic legislature and governor-pretend. I am left hoping even more that we get a revote and Rossi wins.

Update: The good thing about this proposed *law* is that the GFWs always try to bite off more than they can chew
Definition of Assault Weapons. The definition is based on a "single military feature test," and emphasizes high capacity and enhanced control during firing.

Ban on assault weapons. The manufacture, importation, possession, purchase and transfer of assault weapons are prohibited.

Treatment of assault weapons already in circulation. "Pre-ban" assault weapons must be registered with the appropriate law enforcement authority, a process included in a number of the state and local bans, but not in the federal ban.
Those from a fact sheet from Washington Ceasefire. Great. A single military feature? This bill has no hope. I hope they get an actual draft up soon so we can see if this bill has a chance or not. One things for sure, if the bill passes, I'll be getting an "Assualt Weapon," (or two, or ten) before it goes into effect, and NO, I will not be registering them.

Would the federal government hurry up and protect us from these idiots?!?!?!? Dear President Bush and members of congress: please read the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, and then uphold the oaths you swore when you took office.

Ummm...isn't the ability to forcefully expell a projectile a "military feature"?

I'd prefer to expell our governor as a projectile. That used to be a military feature.
