Bill Title: Concerning bulk purchases and transfers of firearms.
Committee: Civil Rights and Judiciary
Companion Bill: None
AN ACT Relating to bulk purchases and transfers of firearms; and 1 adding a new section to chapter 9.41 RCW.
What the Bill says:
It will limit the purchase or transfer of more than one firearm in a 30 day period of time by any seller to a private individual. Exception is made for law enforcement and heirs of estates as well as security officers and federal agents.
Our Summary Opinion:
It is limiting your right to buy a weapon of your choice whenever you want to. You would not be allowed to buy both a rifle and a shotgun at a gun sale or show where they are more available and at a reasonably good price. This bill suggests that buying two different types of weapons at the same time is somehow a “bulk” purchase as if we were buying a ton of toilet paper! That is what the impacts of this bill would require to clean off its infringement of constitutional rights.
