The Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association have filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging gun control Initiative 1639 in Washington State, on several grounds.
Initiative 1639 promises do three things; punish responsible, law-abiding citizen, fail to change the behavior of rapists, murders, & terrorists, and impose a significant cost upon WA tax-payers.
When boots-on-the-ground lawmen and women oppose a measure that is being promoted as a crime-prevention tool, it is safe to conclude that there is something really wrong with Washington Initiative 163
If passed, the initiative 1639 would define every common semi-auto rifle on the map as a “semiautomatic assault rifle” that must be registered and regulated.
Not only does the initiative discriminate against gun owners, it classifies common recreational firearms as ‘semiautomatic assault rifles’ and requires gun buyers to surrender their medical privacy.
The people of WA deserve to know that the sheriffs and police officers throughout the Evergreen State believe that Initiative 1639 is an attack on every law-abiding citizen’s constitutional rights.
“It’s not enough to exercise your rights – you need to protect them at the ballot box. I encourage Washingtonians who value their Second Amendment rights to visit Initiative1639.org and find out more.
The National Rifle Association is glad to see the court today recognized how negligent, if not worse, gun control advocates were in their signature-gathering for this ill-advised ballot initiative.
Proving that money can’t buy everything, Washington State’s most recent anti-gun ballot initiative may end up being derailed over a failure to comply with mandatory legal requirements.
A lawsuit challenging the validity of anti-gun-rights Initiative 1639 has been filed in Thurston County Superior Court by nationally-recognized Second Amendment advocate Alan Gottlieb.
“When paid signature gatherers told people to ‘read it online,” “It’s not just alarming, it amounts to deception.” “The court needs to step in enforce state law and the state constitution.”
This means that gun owners would be forced to repeatedly take firearms training courses in order to remain eligible to purchase any semiautomatic rifle.
