I am writing this evening with cautious optimism!

"Cautious" because anything can happen during session, thus nothing (and nobody) is safe until the gavel hits the wood (Sine Die, or the official end of the legislative session).

I am optimistic however because so far, there are only three anti-gun bills with any kind of "legs" and those legs are not strong (out of about a dozen anti-gun bills that were introduced this session).

LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY!

Those three bills are:

SSB 5078 (Substitute Senate Bill 5078 - "Hi-Cap" mag ban).  Still in the Senate Rules Committee, awaiting a date on the floor calendar for a vote.  Could get called anytime *however* if we keep the pressure up on our electeds, SSB 5078 just may not come up for a vote at all.

Go Here And Click The "Comment On This Bill" Button

You don't even need to write much if you don't want to.  Just simply click the "oppose" button and write "Please oppose SSB 5078.  Thank you" and your opposition will be tallied on a spreadsheet.

SSB 5038 (Substitute Senate Bill 5038 - "Open Carry Ban").  Also in the Senate Rules Committee, awaiting a date on the floor calendar *unless* there is large amounts of opposition to this bill.  So let's do it!

Go Here To Comment/Oppose SSB 5038

Again, one does not need to write much, just "Please oppose SSB 5038.  Thank you".

And finally, in the House of Representatives, we have HB 1283 which is kind of like SSB 5038 yet even more vague.  It is in the House Rules Committee awaiting a date on the floor vote calendar.  Let's see if we can't keep it stuck in committee!

Go Here To Oppose HB 1283

So there you go:  In less than ten minutes (possibly five?), you can raise your voice and show your opposition to three anti-gun bills!!


Yes - the legislators are feeling the pressure - so let's keep it up!!!

Get your friends, family, etc. to join in.

WE CAN DO THIS AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE SO FAR THIS SESSION!!!

Whatever the Libtards on the West Side, can't pass thru the Legislature, they pass thru a Vote in the November Elections.
SAD.

It’s bullshit, and I thought this exact same thing when I saw how these bills didn’t gain the traction I thought they would. It’s almost like they don’t care either way, if they fail here, we will see them in November. I’m thinking this is one way our elected officials can say they didn’t oppose gun bills, even though they do. What we need is a far more effective way to fight these Initiatives before the election.

I love these type of posts, making it easier to find the link.

dunno if its my browser update or the state legislature website doing it, but its not allowing me to autofill anymore, which is kind of annoying. ive been commenting on these nearly every day, opposing. I haven't even gotten a canned response from these assholes yet either, they don't even want to bother with those anymore.

Try clearing your cache or switching to a different browser.  The website might be thinking that you are a bot.  I am not a tech expert by any means, so it’s just a hunch.

Thank you for taking action and yes - it does make a difference!!

If your voice along with all of the other voices being raised in opposition to these anti-gun bills did not matter, then these bills would just sail through the legislative process like greased owl snot.

But they are not!

I say this to everyone in WAHTF:  Your voices do matter and are having an impact this legislative session!  Stay strong and stay engaged!  WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Question, what is the cutoff date where if the bill doesn't get a floor vote it dies in this session?
Link Posted: 2/24/2021 9:58:38 PM EDT
Only took a couple minutes.  Thanks for making it so easy!

Great question and thank you for asking!

Technically: March 9th by 1700 hours is the cutoff date to get bills passed out of the house of origin (SB or SSB out of the Senate, HB or SHB out of the House of Representatives).

For those bills that "cross over" to the opposite chamber, they must get read into the appropriate committee.  These committees then vote "do pass" or "do not pass".  This has to be done by March 26th (technically)

Then technically the last day to consider a bill is April 11th.

The 2021 legislative session is scheduled to end on the 25th of April.  If the legislature's business is not done by April 25th, then the Governor can call a 30-day special session to extend the deadline (and if they are not done by then, a second 30-day special session can be called).

We saw some attempts at some "last-minute trickery" last session, where the anti's tried to tie a budget item to I believe it was the "hi-cap" mag ban bill last year, however that ended up getting nixed via some additional procedural maneuvering, if memory serves correct.

So, that was a long way of answering your question.  The short answer is nothing is considered dead until the actual end of session, called "Sine Die", which hopefully with be the 25th of April.

Fuck the DNC

Canned response from Bronoske’s aid again:

“Dear John Martz,

Thank you for writing to the office of Representative Dan Bronoske to express your concerns for Substitute Senate Bill 5038, Substitute House Bill 1283, and Substitute Senate Bill 5078. Representative Bronoske appreciates hearing from you on this matter.

We thank you for taking time to share your views. Substitute Senate Bill 5038 does not prevent someone with a concealed carry permit to carry concealed differentiating from existing laws where firearms are prohibited like the access areas of a jail or other law enforcement facilities; the area used in connection with court proceedings; restricted access areas of a mental health facility; that portion of an establishment classified by the liquor and cannabis board as off-limits to persons under 21 years of age; restricted access areas of a commercial service airport; and public or private elementary and secondary school premises. The statutes governing prohibited places to possess a firearm can be found at RCW 9.41.300 and RCW 9.41.280. Cities, towns, counties and other municipalities may also have laws and ordinances affecting the use, possession or sale of firearms. RCW 9.41.290.

Substitute House Bill 1283 is currently in the House Rules committee. I would also like to acknowledge the substitute bill has bipartisan support. Substitute Senate Bill 5078 is also in the House Rules committee. We hope you will continue to voice your opinion on these, or any other pieces of legislation which are important to you.

If you are interested in following this, or any other bill, we encourage you to visit http://app.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/ to sign up for email notifications.

Representative Bronoske thanks you for taking time to share your views. Please do not hesitate to contact our office whenever you have a matter of interest or concern.

Best regards,

Megan Bartol

Office of Representative Dan Bronoske
28th Legislative District”

As of right now, it seems the "Validate District" is failing which prevents posting of comments.

5038 Passed the Senate today.  Time to move our letter writing efforts to the House.  Keep it up all.  It's not over yet.
