USA – -(Ammoland.com)- On July 1st of 2022, Washington State’s standard capacity magazine ban goes into effect. This ban means that no one in the state will be allowed to sell, buy, or transfer gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Companies that continue to ship standard capacity magazines into the state will violate the draconian law. Unlike other states like New Jersey which also banned gun mags, Washington state owners can keep any magazines no matter the capacity if acquire before July 1st. And continue to use the magazines even after the law goes into effect.
Anyone caught with a firearm magazine holding more than 10 rounds acquired after June 2022 will be guilty of a misdemeanor and could be sent to jail for 364 days, plus a $5,000 fine. But here is the thing…
Gun owners are NOT required to prove when they received the magazines. Law enforcement must prove that the gun owner got the magazines AFTER the law went into effect.
Viewers, you may not realize that a few magazine companies date stamp their products. But without those date stamps it will be almost impossible for law enforcement to determine if the magazine was acquired before or after the law went into effect.
So, what is the point of the law?
This law is nothing more than a feel-good gesture to the Pacific Northwest gun grabbers.
This useless new law will not make anyone safer. The politicians took a lot of money from Bloomberg front groups, and that is how they pay up. In return, these anti-freedom groups are going to use this “victory” to fundraise more money.
Not all hope is lost. Right now, there are two cases under consideration by the Supreme Court. Either of those cases could spell the end of magazine capacity bans not only in Washington State but across the country. There are also other challenges to these unconstitutional laws working through the court system.
If you are in Washington State, the most important thing you can do is get out in vote this fall. This bill was passed on party lines. If voters rise up and vote these gun grabbers out, they can be replaced with pro-freedom representatives.
Virginia did it, and Washington State can do it too.
