SEATTLE (Reuters) - A museum in Washington state plans to remove about a dozen borrowed firearms from a World War Two exhibit and return them to their owners to comply with a new gun law that requires background checks for all gun transfers, the institution said on Wednesday.

Washington voters passed legislation earlier this month expanding background checks on all firearms purchases to include sales at guns shows and online, as well for loans and transfers.

The Lynden Pioneer Museum, located about 100 miles north of Seattle and just south of the Canadian border, said that as a result it was pulling all 11 of the World War Two-era guns in its exhibit, "Over the Beach: The WWII Pacific Theater," before the law takes effect.

"The museum will be returning these guns to their owners because as of Dec. 4, we would be in violation of the law if we had loaned firearms that had not undergone the background check procedure," the museum said in a statement.

I volunteer at the RRMcCormick museum, about 30 years ago the Chicago Tribune had control of the Foundation that runs the museum and the First Division Museum. They, The Tribune, wanted to wash all evidence that Col. McCormick was a hunter and gun collector, so they just took his firearms out of his library and replace them with books. I visited several times during that period and I got into several heated discussions with the staff and once with the so called curator of the museum as to why they found it necessary to fuck with history. Needless to say when I started to volunteer at the Col's museum (his mansion) I was glad to see that he weapons/firearms had been returned.

WTF?

Is it retroactive or something?

I remember back in AIT, I was at Fort Huachuca, and I would have to have a detail handing out towels at the COL Eiffler Gym at Prosser Village.
I noticed, in the glass case there, was a 45ACP "Homemade" Sub Machine gun that COL Eiffler had made during the war. It made me think about the current prohibitive gun atmosphere, and anyone building a submachine gun in the military, even in a time of war would get slammed by uncle sugar and would definitely NOT have a gym named after them.

I had nothing to do with it, someone though did have a change of heart and decided to rectify the problem. I've been volunteering at the museum for only 3 years.

At this point I'm not sure I can talk about this law and stay within the COC.
