Washington state magazine ban to be voted on this weekend

Might be worth contacting your legislators so that they know you are opposed, even if they have already made up their minds.

Here's a tidbit about magazine size, in case you were wondering.

Magazine size restrictions have no efficacy. Our primary problem is suicide (2/3 of gun deaths in this country), and you only need one bullet to kill yourself. Swapping mags takes very little time. The fire rates of mass shooters are not significantly impacted by mag size, and even if they were, mass shooters barely register as an actual problem within the “gun deaths” numbers. Mags are cheap, easy to manufacture, can be easily 3d printed, and do not expire. Making certain mags illegal turns a huge number of law abiding citizens into criminals. The current 10 cartridge magazine size limitation contemplated by the left is lower than most ordinary pistols sold for home defense or used as police sidearms.

You may have heard that the mag ban failed to make it out before the deadline.

You may not have heard that it was revived by the Democratic party in Olympia using procedural tactics.
After failing to pass bills to ban standard capacity magazines through the normal legislative process, anti-gun legislators playing procedural games have reintroduced this legislation as House Bill 2947, which is now scheduled for a public hearing on Tuesday, February 25th.
If you haven't contacted your legislators, now would be a really good time, unless you want all those standard capacity magazines that came with your guns to be illegal (bans the possession, manufacture, sale, transfer).
