More gun control

We still don't have a workable budget and Olympia's weak kneed leftists are trying to district with a loser bill.

SB 6628 makes it is a crime to leave a firearm where a child might have access. Problem is, it is already a crime of neglect to leave a firearm where a child might have access. But the Senators useless scurrying makes it look they they care, and are doing something.

The Senate's far left "progressives" Adam Kline (D- 37), Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D-36), & Debbie Regala (D-27) are behind this proposal. They want to appear compassionate about the recent shooting of the little girl at Armin Jahr Elementary in Bremerton. Everyone's hearts go out to the parents, the kids and everyone. At last report, the little girl is still in critical condition at Harborview. Please join us in prayer for her restoration to health.

Its despicable for the Senators to take political advantage of this tragic accident.


The bill digest describes the proposal in these terms:
"[SB 6628] Expands the crime of reckless endangerment to include storing or leaving a loaded firearm in a location where a person knows, or reasonably should know, that a child is likely to gain access, and the child obtains possession of the loaded firearm."

"[SB 6628] Increases the fee for a concealed pistol license."

There are two purposes to the bill: First, it allows the Senators to strut about claiming they are "doing something." Second, law-abiding people who carry self-protection will face higher fees for being able to protect themselves.

Please email your Senator and tell them "No on SB 6628."
