Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Your NRA-ILA has learned that anti-gun legislators may attempt to amend Substitute Senate Bill 6620 on the floor in order to make it seem a little less outrageous while still containing significant infringements.

Any legislation that removes a constitutional right from a segment of law-abiding adults remains an affront to the Second Amendment and your NRA will continue to oppose them. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to reject any version of SSB 6620 that removes rights from law-abiding adults in Washington. Click the “Take Action” button below and also call 1-800-562-6000 to contact your state Senator.

Substitute Senate Bill 6620, sponsored by Senator David Frockt (D-46), would prohibit the purchase and transfer of all semi-automatic rifles to adults under the age of 21.

Federal law already prohibits adults under 21 from purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearm dealer. Legislative proposals to prevent law-abiding adults aged 18-20 years old from acquiring semi-automatic rifles would deny them access to the most modern and effective rifles for self-defense, thus depriving them of their constitutional rights.

Substitute SB 6620 would also establish what amounts to a 10-day waiting period for transfers of these firearms by requiring that they go through the state background check like handguns rather than the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) that is currently used for all long gun transactions. While federal law allows for such transactions to be completed if three days have elapsed from the time of the “delayed” response, the state check requires a wait of ten days in such a scenario.

Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to reject any version of Substitute Senate Bill 6620 that removes rights from law-abiding adults in Washington.

Here we go again, the NRA “fighting for our rights”

just as they did in 1934 (NFA), 1968(GCA), 1985(FOPA – Hughes amendment), 1994(AWB) and 2017(bump stocks)

Sometimes I wonder if the NRA leadership truly UNDERSTAND the 2A.
I am still a card carrying member – for now.

Just FYI – anyone writing to Senators and Reps – write your own letter. From recent info received, don’t use the copy/paste templates they get filtered out.

This is what you get when Democrats take over Government.

I think I heard it on talk radio that the next school shooter is out there already armed and waiting to go off. So, no laws will stop it. Armed people in schools (teachers, security,etc) will.
A lever action or pump rifle/shotgun will be equally devastating when shooting fish in a barrel.

I also wasn’t sure if it was DC or the Washington state.

I guess these politicians have no idea that teens under age use handguns and this 21 rifle restriction will be no different. Punish the criminals not law abiding citizens.

This article is VERY POORLY WRITTEN. It was not clear at all whether this was Washigton DC or the State of Washington. Further, it refernces a “substitute bill”, no details on what was substituted for what….. then it mentions some ammendments. Not clear which does what….. and what is left if the proposed ammendments are attached. Is the entire bill rotten, and to be opposed? What substitutes for what when this Sub bill is passed? What ELSE does this bill do or remove? Good to finally figure out where this bill is, in the State. Senator contacted, but who knows?… Read more »

Nearly all of the Anti-Fiream Proposals In the “Former Washington State” ( Now Captured) are Sponsored by the Pussy Boy, Feminized Sissy, Man Bun wearing, pencil neck, weakling, Named Mr.David Frock. He is a TRAITOR. Everyone in my community here knows him as Nazi Scum, a pony pocket Nazi Scum Pig, getting a separate Paycheck from the Millionaire Psychopath Michael Bloomberg. Legislator is loaded with fools whom hate America. Forget DACA. Get these American hating Pigs out of the country

Washington State is Failed State, period. Thousands of law abiding Firearm Owners have made multiple sincere attempts to get these Legislators to “Cease and Desist” there continuous and never ending destruction of our Constitutional Rights, Both U.S. and WA. State. It is pointless. They are double speak word smithers. They respond to our letters, stating they will honor our requests. Then, with deliberate malice and intent, THEY ALWAYS back peddle and trash our rights, stripping us of all that is naturally OURS. It is not just Firearms they attack. Last week they passed a law making Pregnancy a States right… Read more »
