Sneak Attack on Washington State

Mon, 08/27/2018 - 10:36
Did you know the Winchester 1903, a .22-caliber rifle that has a 10-round tube magazine, is a “semi-automatic assault rifle”? In fact, every semi-automatic rifle is a “semi-automatic assault rifle.” So says Michael Bloomberg, and he is poised to turn his definition into law. The gun-banner epithet “assault weapon” has always been a deceit. Unlike other firearm terms—such as “handgun” or “bolt action”—the phrase “assault weapon” has never had a fixed meaning. Instead, the phrase is a euphemism for “as many firearms as we can restrict, based on current political conditions.”

Law is dead in Washington state: I-1639 is inarguably illegal

Mon, 08/27/2018 - 08:59
There is no law in Washington state. On Friday, the Seattle Supreme Court — formerly the Washington State Supreme Court –killed it. The so-called justices killed the law because they are left-wing activist, arrogant, lying hacks. They hate guns, they hate gun owners, solely due to those factors they unanimously approved Initiative I-1639. The so-called court openly defied the clear and simple language of Washington state law. The so-called judges killed the law.

State Supreme Court Clears Way for Washington Gun Measure

Mon, 08/27/2018 - 08:58
Thurston County Superior Court Judge James Dixon had said the signature petitions did not clearly identify what would change in the law and the font was too small to be readable.

But the Supreme Court ruling, written by Chief Justice Mary Fairhurst, said the secretary of state is not required to block a measure based on the readability and formatting of the proposed measure's text.
