Some good news from WA as well...

The assault weapons ban, mag capacity ban, and background checks for ammo have failed, for now. Of course they'll be back.

Still good news, but a bit more work to be done; watch this proposal they have still alive for "Establishing and Office of Gun Safety and Violence Prevention" another ploy by communists to load the propaganda machine in the future by controlling the dialog.

Well sure enough, they're trying to sneak it back in another way:

https://www.king5.com/article/news/p...a-e0a4a14218ac

They want to add it to the state budget instead and pay gun owners to turn in their magazines, and at the same time ban anything over 15 rounds.

It's really no surprise, considering how corrupt the Seattle City Counsel is when it comes to getting what they want.

After we the people defeated the I976 $30 car tab fee, only to have them fight us on it, take it to court saying we the voters were confused when voting on it, a judge sided with us and now the head of Sound Trans is voicing his opinion saying we shouldn't be paying $30 car tabs. All this put on hold and waiting to go to the states supreme court, but in the meantime we will have to continue to pay the inflated tab fee's.

AG Bob Ferguson was unhappy he didn't get his way with the high-cap mag ban, so now he's found a dirty loophole to pull on us.

What's sickening is that we badly need to spend money to repair our crumbling infrastructure, as the roads and bridges are getting really bad and there are too few lanes for all the cars now on the road. But instead they want to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to "buy back" property these taxpayers already paid for in the first place!

Another virus that will spread to other states....like Virginia. I guess it would be laughable to think the state would pay fair market value.

Well it looks like the 2020 session ended without these ban bills getting anywhere. The only thing that passed was a bill meant to consolidate firearms record-keeping into one agency managed by the WA State Patrol, plus another bill intended to fund anti-gun research. The Dems thought that by having a majority in the entire state legislature that it'd be a slam dunk this year, but our side proved more resilient than they imagined.

Now's to try and take back some seats this next election, or else we'll be looking down the gun-ban barrel again next year.

Well at least this gives you a little breathing room.

Do not let it go to waste! Get out there and rattle some cages in the interim. We are already working on our strategy here in VA for next year. They will be back and so will we.

Unfortunately I think it merely gives me one more year to decide what new guns and mags to get before they come right back in 2021 and likely succeed with their bans. WA is tilting further to the left every year as more wealthy liberals move here, and soon it will be just as moonbat-crazy as California and Massachusetts. 20 years ago the area where I live was mostly rural and solidly Republican, but in just the past five years so many new housing developments have popped up and suburban families moved in that we ended up with a liberal, anti-gun Democratic representative in the last election.

People like me who've lived here all our lives are badly outnumbered by the recent transplants in our own hometown, which is scarcely recognizable now. The woods where I used to shoot as a kid has been turned into an upscale community with multi-million dollar homes, and all the beat-up old pickup trucks that used to line the streets have been replaced by fancy BMW SUVs. What pisses me off the most is the attitudes of these new residents, who aren't the least bit sociable as neighbors and think us old-timers are the ones who should leave if we don't like the changes.

They aren't liberals. They are anything but.

All the more reason to get more active in politics.

So far this is working for us in VA. And it shows promise in the future. But there is no such thing as a free ride. Of course you can always give up and roll over.

I'm sure the left would love for us all to do just that. There's always a few in a crowd who claim they're gun owners and believe in the right and 2A, but they also sit on their hands and say: if it happens it happens.

Luckily, we have a class of gun owners who truly believe in their rights and go out and fight to defend.

No offense there 7in1911, but "voting" is next to meaningless these days, like it not it well past the time to use the 2A as Founders intended.
