    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    None of them have seen any movement in the past 9 months.

    Thanks for your email. I just looked up these bills, and they are
    from the 2009-11 biennium, which means they would have to be
    reintroduced in order to be considered for the upcoming 2011-13
    biennium. It appears that these bills didn't even receive a
    committee hearing last year, so it is unlikely they will gain much
    traction this year, either.

    According to Doug Erickson (Representative, Senator elect) there has been little movement on any gun bills the past few years due to the makeup of the legislature and public opinion combined. People in Washington are opposed to more anti-gun laws, the Dems in charge of everything in Olympia are opposed to more pro-gun laws. Therefore there was an agreement that they would not even consider any bills relating to firearms. Maybe that'll change but that would also mean anti- bills would be considered as well.

    With the recent events regarding the sales of guns to UC agents expect HB 2264 to get some play, maybe even passage.

    If it does pass, the next logical step will be to require an FFL transfer for all private sales. Pretty soon, transfering ownership of a firearm will be as complicated as selling a house thanks to those who abused the laws.
