WA HR 1604: bill to make suppressors fully legal

As many of you may be aware, in WA you can own a firearms suppressor, but not use one, due to a kink in the law.

Legislation is currently underway to correct that kink and allow owners of legal suppressors/silencers to shoot with them in Washington. Even if you don't own a suppressor, this is still great new in terms of advancing gun rights in the Northwest. Please contact your elected reps and ask them to support this bill. Some THR members have already gotten emails back from reps saying "don't see a problem with this, will support it when it comes up."

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/documents/bil...Bills/1604.pdf

Thanks for your support!

Welp, you can hope in one hand and poo in the other, and see which fills up first.

All it takes is just a few minutes to google up the contact info for your state rep and send him a nice email asking him to support it. A focus on safety, noise prevention, and a lack of criminal misuse of legally-owned silencers (pretty much unheard of) would probably be good. Short, just a paragraph or so.

I'm told that it works even better if you print it out and mail it, makes it that much more serious. In the time it takes to watch half an epsiode of The Simpsons on Hulu.com, you could knock it out and be happy knowing you did your part.

I'm quite familiar with my reps and have contacted them many times....I appreciate the enthusiasm but I don't need a civics lesson or a kick in the butt thanks.

This needs all the help it can get. More states need to recognize the right to shoot quietly and politely!

It sounds like it passed. I think there will be a 90 day wait before it goes into effect. I also belive you need a $200 atf tax stamp. Do you know if it will be legal to use a suppressor for deer hunting?

I think it's just Seattle. Down here in Thurston county you could carry a sword if you wanted - seriously.
