    We need to start legislation to "lock up" the people who start these bs gun laws in the first place.

    Letters sent to Orwall and Gregerson.

    I received this response from Larry Springer yesterday:

    "Thank you for your email message. Normally I do not respond to individual emails with a form response but the unusually large number of messages (several hundred) prevents me from sending an individual response to each one.

    There are about 18 separate bills dealing with fire arm regulation. Most will not pass but a few may make it through the legislative process. The bills cover a wide variety of issues including the following:

    Required safe storage

    Ban on assault style weapons and large capacity magazines Licensure for purchase of assault style weapons/large magazines Prohibition on restrictions for concealed weapon permits Prohibition of database for hand gun sales Repeal of voter approved background checks initiative Protection of victims of sexual assault Disposal of forfeited firearms Protection of law enforcement officers Notice of expiration to holders of concealed weapon permits.

    There are others, but these are the major areas legislation addresses this session. As mentioned, I have received many emails both in favor and opposed to many of these.

    I have in the past, and will this session, support bills that establish rules for the safe storage of firearms to prevent access by children, notice to licensees of expiration, provide for voluntary purchase of safe storage units, and increased protections for victims of sexual assault.

    It is doubtful any of the other bills will pass this session, but if any of them move further through our committee process I will consider them at that time.

    I know this response will not address all of the questions raised in the hundreds of emails. I have tried to hit the main points that have a chance of passing. Let me know if you have further questions and I will do my best to get back to you.

    Thanks again for contacting me.

    Larry"

    It sounds like Springer will support the bill sent to the floor.

    https://www.nraila.org/articles/2017...he-house-floor

    "Today, the House Judiciary Committee considered substitute bills for House Bill 1387 and House Bill 1122. Thanks to your calls and emails, House Bill 1387​, and its substitute bill that we reported on yesterday, didnít receive a vote and have officially died in committee having failed to pass before the deadline. Unfortunately, a Substitute for House Bill 1122 was passed out of committee and will soon be on the House floor where it will await full consideration.

    The Substitute for House Bill 1122 would require the locking up of oneís firearms or else they would potentially face reckless endangerment charges. Further, under this bill the penalty for a reckless endangerment charge involving a gun storage violation would amount to a Class C Felony. This intrusive government legislation invades peopleís homes and forces them to render their firearms useless in a self-defense situation by locking them up. House Bill 1122 is a solution in search of a problem."

    Problem: if an anti-firearms bill failed to pass out of committee, or fails in a floor vote, the Anti-Gunners are well-funded by Bloomberg, Soros, Paul Allen, et. al, and plan to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and who knows what else by sponsoring a Citizen's Initiative and using the well-known "King County voter fraud machine" to crank out however many extra ballots are needed and pass them against the will of the people. So, fasten yr seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

    Correct on both posts. It is never over and we can never stop fighting. These people are like turds that float and never quite get flushed.

    District 4 seems to have a pretty good guy in state gov't: Matt Shea. Here's an update from him:

    "Thank you for your e-mail! Rep. Shea voted against HB 1483 in committee." Marsha Whitney (Shea's assistant)
