Washington is Third State to Ban-confiscate All Assault Weapons

Posted on the 21 February 2013 by Eowyn @DrEowyn

First, it was Minnesota where, on January 31, 2012, Democrats in the state’s House of Representatives introduced HF 241, a bill that bans and confiscates all assault weapons.

Two weeks later, it was Missouri where, on Feb. 14, Democrats in the state’s House of Representatives introduced a similar bill, HB 545, which will make it a class C felony to manufacture, import, possess, purchase, sell, or transfer any assault weapon or large capacity magazine.

Both HF 241 and HB 545 define “assault weapon” to include semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic pistols, and semi-automatic shotguns. Exempted from both bills are government officials and employees, and members of the armed forces and law enforcement. If passed, HF 241 and HB 545 will render Minnesota and Missouri into effective police states where private citizens are no match against the lethal instruments to which only the government — and lawless criminals — have access.

Add the State of Washington to the above.

On February 13, 2013, Democrats in Washington’s State Senate introduced a similar bill, SB 5737, that bans the manufacture, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of “assault weapons” and any assault weapon conversion kits.

Like Minnesota’s HF 241 and Missouri’s HB 545, Washington’s SB 5737 also defines “assault weapon” as including semi-automatic pistols, semi-automatic rifles, and semi-automatic shotguns.

SB 5737 is sponsored by Democrats Sen. Ed Murray, Jeanne Kohl-Welles, and Adam Kline.

As Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit rightly observes:

“THIS IS AN ORGANIZED NATIONAL EFFORT FOLKS…. This is not a coincidence. It is a concerted effort.”
