Across the nation, the liberal left is committing themselves ever more succinctly to the idea that guns should be extremely difficult to legally own.
This is simply their only recourse in a nation whose conservative majority cannot, (and will not), allow the 2nd Amendment to be even slightly altered. The right to bear arms in our nation is our insurance policy against any government, foreign or domestic, attempting to negate any of our other God-given rights.
Without the 2nd Amendment, the United States citizenry is a sitting duck to totalitarians of all shapes and sizes.
In Washington State, this struggle has become all to real. The left-leaning legislators of the The Evergreen State has long been in the gun control lobby’s corner, but 2018’s docket looks to be one of the most anti-gun sessions in the history of the state. That is why, on the steps of the state Capitol, conservative gun rights activists recently gathered to let these lefty legislators know exactly how they feel.
“About 100 gun rights supporters rallied on the steps of the Capitol building in Olympia on Friday.
“Most held signs and many carried pistols, rifles or knives.
“’This is the safest day to be at the capitol,’ said Sen. Phil Fortunato, R-Enumclaw.
“A long list of speakers, mostly Republican, voiced opposition to legislation they say would limit or eliminate their rights to bear arms.
“They called on lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to halt gun regulation bills.
“The Gun Rights Coalition national chair member Rick Halle opened the rally with the Pledge of Allegiance.
“Robert Satiacum, member of the Puyallup tribe, then lead the group in prayer. He emphasized that the right to bear arms unites everyone regardless of party lines, race, or ethnicity.”
Of the laws being considered for action during 2018, there are two in particular that seem to irk Washington’s conservatives.
The first is SB 6049 which would limit the number of rounds in any magazine to 10, declaring any weapons with more space in the magazine to be a “high capacity” magazine.
The second are a set of partner bills that would allow individual municipalities the ability to create their own gun laws, effectively allowing the state to discriminate against gun owners in a town-by-town basis.
