The Seattle Times reported last night that Washington State legislators are being lobbied hard this weekend by anti-2nd Amendment groups. These legislators are being pushed to support Washington’s HB 1588, which effectively outlaws private firearm sales. If you need to familiarize yourself with this bill, I've written about it previously here and here.
There are some Democrats being lobbied such as Rep. Steve Kirby (D, 29th LD) and Rep. David Sawyer (D, 29th LD). Rumor has it that Vice President Joe Biden may even be calling the Democrats in an attempt to secure their allegiance to the anti-2nd Amendment agenda of the POTUS.
The most urgent action is needed with the Republicans that are being pressured into supporting this bill. Below, you’ll find a list of Republicans that 2nd Amendment defenders and liberty lovers must contact urgently! Please contact them immediately and demand, even plead if necessary, that they support the Constitution and honor their oath of office. If you can’t get a hold of them, leave a message and call them back. Tell them not to support HB 1588. No compromises and no deals! All we require of them is to stand on traditional Republican values and defend liberty!
I’m being told that the vote on this bill might happen on Monday, March 11, so your urgent action is vital!
Rep. Maureen Walsh (R, 16th LD)
