I did not want this discussion to polute the other topic...

Beginning July 1st a few changes.

I-1639 will be fully implanted, however there are some legal challenges, below are some videos and links.

I really don't want to comment too much, unless in person.  Just to say it is disgusting and I do not want to pay the imposed new taxes/fees after July 1st.  Dan in the videos below has been a real patriot in this battle.  During the election last fall his shop was a key provider of no on I-1639 leaflets and yard signs.

https://www.saf.org/saf-nra-amends-challenge-to-i-1639-anti-gunners-wrong-lawsuit-remains/

Then another item in question are the 80% lowers beginning July 1st and this came about through SHB-1739.  Seems like they will need serial numbers, the way it is written.

Carl - Your (along with every law-abiding gun owner and gun business/manufacturer in the state) situation sucks.  I truly feel for y'all; at the same time - I thank God (again) that I live in a semi-conservative state with mostly gun-friendly laws. 

However, even as "relatively" sane as AZ weapons laws are - until this state session, owning a jump rope was illegal in Arizona.  That's right... owning two pieces of wood connected by a rope or chain was illegal and could be prosecuted with the same vengeance as having a Weapon of Mass Destruction.  Unfortunately, we have several other stupid laws on the books that "could" be used to prosecute law-abiding and innocent gun owners - if the state decided to go that direction.  Many of our anti-gang violence laws are so broadly/poorly written that I could be prosecuted for carrying guns from my home to my truck - if seen by someone else who felt "intimidated" by my "display" of firearms.

Idiot politicians (whoops - I repeat myself) across the county pass "feel good laws" which are poorly written and full of holes ... yet allow them to claim "I'm doing something against violence!"

I don't know the details of Washington State's 1639 - but it certainly sounds like another "feel good" law passed by ignorant politicians (whoops - again) that have NO FRIGGEN clue what they are talking about.  Best of luck defeating this.  I stand with you in Sprit.

Thanks Ranger Joe,
Here is the text to 1639...
https://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/initiatives/finaltext_1531.pdf

I noticed this article today...
https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2019/06/11/washingtons-1634s-implementation-total-train-wreck/

One gun shop that I am aware of, The Bunker, out of the Tri-Cities (eastern Washington) is closing its doors and moving to Arizona.  There will probably be others closing as well...

One thing this does not apply to, are bolt action rifles...so when I get an itch for a new toy...it will be one of those Mossberg's and I will probably order a 7.62x40 barrel from MDWS to swap out the existing barrel with...

I am really concerned for Oregon next, does not bode well at all...
