U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Washington Senate amended an already extreme mag ban bill to limit magazine capacity in the state to 10 rounds.  This measure is expected to receive a vote ​at any time. Please contact your State Senator and ask them to STRONGLY OPPOSE Senate Bill 5078.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Senate Bill 5078, bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc., of magazines that “are capable of holding,” or hold more than, 10 rounds of ammunition.  This includes conversion kits or parts from which any such magazine may be assembled.  These so-called “high capacity” magazines are, in fact, standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition.  For example, the Glock 19 was the most commonly purchased firearm of 2021 and has a standard-issue magazine that holds 15 rounds of ammunition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances, such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting.  Prohibited magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms, and must be stored locked at home, making them unavailable for self-defense.  Any violation of this measure is a gross misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of 364 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $5,000.

Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5078.

That’s why I left and I am getting ready to leave OreGONE. The 10 rounds only is total BS and it is only the beginning. The court found that the Lutheran church of the Missouri synod obtained enough signatures to get a measure on the ballot. If enacted, all 80 percenters would need to be registered and serialized, it would create a registry for all guns, you could not buy a new magazine that would hold more than 10 rounds and it would require that you could only use such magazines on your own property or at a shooting range… Read more »

Well the best option, in my mind, in WA and OR is to split the state in half at the Cascade Mountains.

musicman44mag

I would love to become part of Idaho. I really wished that would have passed. The I wouldn’t care about what Oregone says anymore.

Tionico

Make the split NOT at the summit or ridgeline, but at the base toward the west from those peaks. run it from 49″ 00′ down to 42′ 05″

I’ll carry whatever I feel like. Don’t like it? Tough.

How ignorant can these politicians be??????

musicman44mag

i don’t think they are ignorant. They have been getting away with stealing our rights for years and have always made headway with the help of the NRA and people that are not standing up. So long as they can manipulate the system to get what they want they are going to do it.

I pray the red wave hits them hard in November. If it doesn’t, we are ******.

Terry

Well, their ignorance knows no boundaries!
That said – who the hell are you anyway. I have asked you to change the “Terry” as I have had this moniker for years and have been accused of your comments. I’d really like to be disassociated from you.

These anti-gun laws are just giant F-Us to “Trumpsters.” They don’t believe that they will prevent one single murder. The do, however, believe this will piss conservatives off, and that is all they are going for, with the bonus of seeing an occasional conservative arrested. The sad thing is that I believe the Supreme Court will uphold magazine capacity limits.

musicman44mag

Just like all of us that are 2nd amendment supporters I hope what you are saying is wrong, but I share the same concern. The demoncraps have declared war on the gun but think it is ok to have drug shooting zones and provide crack pipes to them. I guess it’s all for the safety of our children.

Tionico

having the designated drug intake zones is one thing. But what I CANNOT abide is that MY tax dollars support not only the sites, but the “supervision” (more accuratltey the STUPIDvision) personnel, overeducated hall monitors at far too high a salary, AND my tax dollars buy the chemicals they ingest. I barely have enough money to get by with basic necessities, and my txes pay for their controlled substances? NO.

Tionico

Washingon State’s SC certainly will. They HATE guns in the hands of We the People. What really picks me is that every year when we get our ballots and pamphlets so we can inform ourselves, there are always a few “justices” standing for election to the Supreme Court. For the past I can’t remember how many elections, NOT ONE has been a contest.. there is always ONLY ONE NAME. So I do not cast a vote. That is why the court stays crooked. No new blood for whom to vote.

Just think, if the NRA had been aware of this legislation from the first white page hitting the presses… Oh, wait? They WERE aware of it and did absolutely NOTHING to prevent it!

Civil disobedience. Surround town hall, tape your standard size magazine on top of your head, to a hat. Talk to reporters. Explain how criminalizing a tool does nothing to reduce violence or crime, but makes felons out of good citizens, and turns them into defenseless victims of real criminals. All possession laws regarding firearms are unconstitutional and ineffective. Their true purpose is to maintain the governments’ monopoly of violence and superiority of arms.

Another useless legislative polemic political tool for fools that create Geo-political conflict & has zero effect on crime rates,

You can’t fix stupid & only endorses & empowers the idiots who refuse to wake up or evolve.

Only if an enforcer is willing to enforce such a law against their fellow countrymen.

“There is no law so unjust, so heinous, so totalitarian that the majority of LEOs won’t enforce it.”

JSNMGC

I checked out your link. You know the white suburban women who were for all things transexual? They had that view right up until: Their little princess lost her shot a college scholarship for sports because a guy who put on women’s clothing and took some drugs easily outperformed her; or Some guy (who says he’s a girl) followed her little princess around in the school shower room sportin’ a hard on and the coach just shrugged her shoulders. It’s the same with the border. Some people can see the issue without personally feeling the pain. Others won’t change their… Read more »

You all hit a nerve again. lol

JSNMGC

It’s interesting.

Tionico

A lot will depend on how each county sheriff will view this new law. I know quite a few that will REFUSE to enforce it just like they have the UBC “law” the Bloomingidiotburg bought for us, and the later one he bought and shoved down our throats. I think there has only been ONE case where the background check/no private sales law was used as a basis for laying charges against one man. The story I got was that the KNEW he was dirty, but could not obtain the needed evidence to charge him and win. So they DID… Read more »
