Lawmakers prepare for vote on new gun law proposals

Olympia – State lawmakers are considering several proposals that would tighten gun control laws in Washington, at the request of Governor Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson. One proposal would ban “assault weapons” in the Evergreen state.  

Opponents told the House Committee on Civil Rights and Judiciary that a ban would put additional burdens on law-abiding gun owners, without stopping gun crimes.
