Brownells Announces Mag Dump for Washington State:

In response to the standard-capacity magazine ban passed in Washington state, Brownells will donate $2.00 for every aluminum Brownells AR-15 magazine sold to the Washington-based Second Amendment Foundation (SAF). SAF is currently planning to file a lawsuit against the state of Washington on behalf of gun owners in the state.

Brownells wants to help SAF fight magazine ban

Sec. 1 ......The legislature intends to limit the prospective sale of large capacity magazines, while allowing existing legal owners to retain the large capacity magazines they currently own.
"Currently own." The statutes passed does not authorize law enforcement to investigate the personal ownership of "large capacity magazine," let alone when a private person acquired such magazine and where.

The law enforcement I know are strong supporters of the 2nd Amendment & follow the oath of office to uphold & defend the Constitution of the United States.

Just to add, the Federal Assault Weapons Ban passed in 1994 and expired in 2004 required Large capacity ammunition feeding device (magazines) to have a serial number and date of manufacture. The regulation (27 CFR 478.92) remained until 2019 when it was finely removed. The regulation remained on the books for 15 years even though it had no force of law. You draw your own conclusion.

Some sporting goods outlets/FFLs are letting everyone know about the deadlines to get firearms that have "high capacity" magazines.

Below is a screenshot of an e-mail I received from Sportsman's Warehouse.

SECOND AMENDMENT FOUNDATION FILES LEGAL CHALLENGE TO WA MAGAZINE BAN
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a federal lawsuit against Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson and several other officials, challenging the state ban on so-called “large capacity magazines” for rifles and pistols. The case is known as Sullivan v. Ferguson.

Joining SAF in this legal action are the Firearms Policy Coalition, Inc., a California-based group; Rainier Arms, LLC and a private citizen, Gabriella Sullivan. They are represented by attorneys David H. Thompson, Peter A. Patterson and William V. Bergstrom with Cooper & Kirk PLLC in Washington, D.C., Cody J. Wisniewski at the Mountain States Legal Foundation, and locally by Joel Ard at Ard Law Group.

Besides Ferguson, defendants are Washington State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste, King County Sheriff Patti Cole-Tindall, Kitsap County Sheriff John Gese, Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott, King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, Kitsap County Prosecutor Chad M. Enright and Grays Harbor County Prosecutor Katie Svoboda.

“We’re asking the court to declare Washington’s ban on original capacity magazines to be unconstitutional under the Second and Fourteenth amendments,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We want an injunction against the state because this ban criminalizes something that is common in a majority of states, and also leaves law-abiding Washington citizens more vulnerable to attack by ruthless criminals.”


might warrant a contribution to the SAF...just saying

Yes, SAF just received a generous contribution from me in the last couple of months as well. I find them to have a more effective use of my funds than other organizations I have contributed to in the past.
