    Washington Initiative 1639 - Bloomberg BS Ban

    How many of us here are involved in the fight against I-1639? This thing's real bad news... Do any of these sound fun to y'all?
    • New, bizarre description of "assault rifle" - “any rifle which utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge to extract the fired cartridge case and chamber the next round, and which requires a separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge,”
    • Ex post facto ban on persons under 21 possessing semiauto rifles, even ones they already own
    • new $25 starting (and open-ended, sure to go up fast) fee on ANY transfer, even non-sales
    • mandatory reporting of personal info on transfers potentially creates backdoor registry
    • new mandatory training and "safe storage" requirements

    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    Along with the $25 department of licensing tax , keeping record at the DOL .

    All semiautomatic long guns are are now assault weapons, even a Ruger 10/22.

    I1639 is horrible.

    It’s a bunch of bull, ive been talking to anyone about it. If this passes a 10/22 or Marlin Model 60 will now be a “assault rifle”.

    Anybody heard anything about if anybody in the industry like Aero, Rainier Arms, etc is helping fight this? Seems they have the most to lose, but most of the real effort I've seen put in other than NRA seems to be Sporting Systems out of Vancouver, though a few little hole-in-the-wall places I've seen have signs up.

    In the Spokane area I’m seeing mostly anti stuff put out by the NRA or even Sporting Systems of Vancouver, who was nice enough to send me a stack of flyers. The anti stuff seems to be all over my FB and I’m sharing as much as I can but with how FB works I’m sure there are plenty of my “friends” that are not seeing it. Hell I only seem to see a small fraction of my “friends” stuff anyways.

    Since this thing has passed and will soon be law, does anyone know what date it will actually go into effect? I am trying to get an AR transferred to my daughter before it does, but she doesn’t get back from school in Alabama until December 8th.
