U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The legislature only just gaveled in this week and anti-gun legislators and gun control groups couldn’t wait to reintroduce their extreme gun ban legislation – an “assault weapons” ban, Senate Bill 5217.  Having failed to gain any traction in the 2021 Regular Session, the measure has now been re-filed and scheduled for a public hearing and executive session next week in the Senate Committee on Law and Justice. At the same time, the committee will also consider anti-preemption legislation, Senate Bill 5568.  Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5217 and Senate Bill 5568.


Senate Bill 5217 arbitrarily classifies many popularly-owned semi-automatic firearms as so-called “assault weapons” and bans their possession, manufacture, transfer, etc.  These firearms are widely used for self-defense, recreational shooting, and hunting, and have now been vilified due to cosmetic features.  It is extremely important that NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters contact their lawmakers in opposition to SB 5217.

Senate Bill 5568 deals with the state’s preemption laws.  SB 5568 will expand gun free zones and permit municipalities to ban the open carry of firearms.  These types of measures result in a complex patchwork of gun laws across the state that ensnare otherwise law-abiding gun owners, turning them into criminals.

Again, please contact members of the Senate Committee on Law and Justice, and ask them to strongly OPPOSE Senate Bill 5217 and Senate Bill 5568.

Keep saying it. Typing slowly so everyone can follow along. One more time for the slow ones among us. They’ll keep doing this til they start being shot, heads on pikes. They do it because there are no adverse consequences/ramifications of stealing We The Little Peeps citizens’ Constitutional rights and money. Politicians are accomplishing what armies failed/feared to attempt, the radical transformation of America into a Socialist shit hole without a shot fired in defense….yet. Where O where are our Founding Fathers when we need them to stand firm in defense of America? Oh, wait, they did their duty 200+… Read more »


Western Washington and Western Oregon are nothing more than California North. Extend the Eastern California border north to the Canadian border and everything west of that line to the coast from Mexico to Canada is a lost cause. If it were possible to continue construction of the border wall, have it take a hard right at the California-Arizona border and go all the way to Canada for the good of the nation.

Politicians seem to think they can vote anything they please into law, arrogantly ignoring the fact that any statute that violates and is repugnant to the Constitution is no law at all, has no authority, creates no obligation and will not be followed.


10%??? Let’s hope for 10%. I’m thinking 20% at a minimum as they’ve already bumped money supply that much. I fear 100%/week or worse – which remains a possibility in the near term.


How many $Billions did Hammer, LaPew, the corrupt rubber-stamp board, Brewer & vampire vendors pocket that would’ve elected pro-gun pols?
