Washington Anti-Self-Defense Legislation Vote Imminent

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Friday, March 26th, anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 5038, was placed on the House Calendar for Second Reading.  The measure can now be brought up for a vote at any time, and your representative needs to hear from you immediately!  Please contact your State Representative and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5038.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Senate Bill 5038 makes it a crime to openly carry, on the person or in a vehicle, a firearm or other “weapon” if the person is participating in, or attending, or is simply within 250 feet of a “permitted demonstration” in a public place.  Despite permitting individuals to use an area for the exercise of their First Amendment rights, anti-gun legislators want to ban those individuals from exercising their Second Amendment rights in the same permitted space.  The Constitution was not written with gradually disappearing ink where one right is more important than another.  The Second Amendment should not be infringed upon in any capacity, especially where other Constitutional Rights are being freely and openly expressed.

Further, SB 5038 makes it a crime to open carry a firearm on Washington State Capitol grounds.  Open carry on the capitol campus during 2A rallies has always been peaceful and without a single incident of violence, however, it will now be banned without reason.

Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5038.

SB 5038 – 2021-22
Prohibiting the open carry of certain weapons at public demonstrations and the state capitol.
My understand of this bill SB 5038 – 2021-22 Is that I do not have the right to defend myself and family, if I found us around a site of demonstration or demonstration comes to area we happen to be at, that demonstrator with Overwhelming number have the right cause mayhem.
I has been demonstrated by politician in the blue state and city that it ok to riot and destroy people life and business.  
JUST SAY NO
NO TO MODIFY IT.

Only government employees are professional enough to use firearms against criminals:

I do recall seeing that image in another account of the arrest and was surprised that the story did not mention that reckless act. I witness more poor firearm handling by officers than I do from the private firearm-owning citizenry. The other scary part is that those that don’t believe we should have firearms because they perceive that we lack “training”, believe an officer, such as him, can carry because he is “trained”. I surely hope what he did was not how he was trained. If he was a private citizen, he’d have been charged with a sheaf of firearm-related… Read more »

Most Americans are convinced that LEOs are highly trained with firearms (shooting skills, when to shoot, when not to shoot, etc.). Most Americans are idiots and believe almost anything. Democrats: Whites commit a disproportionate share of “mass shootings;” Use of firearms for self-defense is rare; and The purpose of the 2nd Amendment was to protect the right of government employees to have firearms. Republicans: Mass shootings are rare and typically happen right before gun control legislation (“connect the dots”); New gun control laws will be enforced by politicians who violate their “oaths;” and “The majority of Cops follow the Constitution,… Read more »

Once again, then why don’t YOU become a police officer and show us all how it SHOULD be done? PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

I’ve reconsidered. If you reword that from a pathetic attempt at a demand, to a polite request, I’ll answer.

Unlike all the opinions he has about people in professions he has never been in – music, sports, politics, business, media, film, etc.

I can only imagine what a thug he was when he wore a badge.

Just another bully who probably peaked in high school and realized he could join the most powerful gang in town to keep getting that rush of having power over people.

Well they better getup of their asses, and enforce the 20,000+ firearms law already on the books against criminals using firearms not law abiding American citizens.

I’d rather they get off their asses and arrest arsonists, robbers, rapists, and murderers.

This legislation will only apply to the right , ANTIFA and BLM thugs will be free to ignore this with no consequences. The liberal left will say they are being peaceful so no crime is being committed . It’s all in the eyes of the beholder. The liberal lefts illusions are like playing the shell game . They keep moving the pea to suit thier unconstitutional agendas . Hell it’s not even under a shell now it’s in thier pocket . They lie and cheat , deception is thier only game what’s new ?

SK, Even better, ditch the left, right, conservative, liberal view. Draw a line on a piece of paper. Put “Anarchy” on one end. Put “Totalitarianism” on the other end. Put “Free Civilization” in the middle. The US form of government (constitutional republic) was intended to be in the “Free Civilization” zone of the line. Communism (in the many different flavors), Fascism, and Absolute Monarchy are all at the far end of “Totalitarianism” side. Socialists and modern day Democrats and Republicans fall at various points between “Totalitarianism” and “Free Civilization.” There are very few Republican politicians who are truly in the… Read more »

If you are going about your business how would you possibly know that there was a “permitted demonstration “in someplace when you’re just passing through?

Virginia passed a law last year even more egregious and stupid, it bans any carry not only at/near “permitted” events, but also at/near events that should have had a permit. It also bans carry on the street where an event is taking place. It does not state how far away you can be if you are on that street. So one mile away or more from an event, if you are driving/walking, etc., and carrying while anywhere on that street, you are in violation of that law.

Here is your proof that they are afraid. Not to mention all of the fencing and National Gard as if that isn’t enough of a statement. They want to ban protests with guns. Haven’t we had a number of peaceful protest showing our support of the 2nd amendment while carrying AR rifles and no one was shot or hurt except for Anitfags or BLDM that accidently shot their buddies that were protesting our protest?

I think you confuse Washington state with Washington, D.C. This article is about a bill in Washington state!

One first need to understand the problem to make an informed argument to fight it. Talking about “fencing and National Gard” in the context of this Washington state bill just makes one look uninformed. One could make quite a number of informed arguments, such as about the riots in Seattle. Demonstrators openly carrying firearms aren’t the problem in Washington state! The people supporting this bill but giving comfort to violent rioters are! The video of the armed security contractor that worked for a local TV station in Seattle during the riots and disarmed rioters stealing rifles from a police vehicle… Read more »

I am not uninformed but I did make a mistake by referring to this article as being Washington DC. You got me there. The comment of carrying loaded AR and other weapons to protests still stands no matter what state though. We are peaceful protesters, Antifags and BLDM are called peaceful but they are really terrorist rioters. I got that part right.
