Now that Oregon narrowly passed some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the country this past election, should it be any surprise that Washington wants to follow suit?
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson, both Democrats, have announced three new measures they plan to pursue during next year’s legislative session.
“We know we can act. We know we should act. And we know we will act in this session of the legislature. And the reason is, Washingtonians demand assertive, effective, and protective gun safety laws. We intend in this session of the legislature to give Washingtonians assertive, effective, and protective laws to protect them and their children against this epidemic of gun violence,” Inslee said.
