Do you think this is a law people should be allowed to break?



Conservative Washington State Counties will NOT enforce the state's new sweeping new restrictions on semi-automatic rifles until courts decide whether they are "constitutional"

A statewide initiative approved by VOTERS in November raised the minimum age for buying semi autos from 18 to 21, required buyers to first pass a firearms safety course and added expanded background checks and gun storage requirements

It was the most comprehensive string of state level gun control measures enacted in the US since the Florida High School shooting.

The NRA and Second Amendment Foundation filed a lawsuit in federal court to challenge this

They say its requirements violate the right to bear arms and stray into regulation of interstate commerce

Sheriffs in the 12 most rural conservative counties, Grant, Lincoln, Okanogan, Cowlitz, Douglas, Benton, Pacific, Stevens, Yakima, Wahkiakum, Mason and Klickitat have said they will NOT enforce the new law

Sheriff Tom Jones said "I swore an oath to defend our citizens and their constitutionally protected rights. I do not believe the POPULAR VOTE overrules that. I don't care what the majority of people said, i care what the constitution says."

Supporters are disappointed but noted sheriffs have no role in enforcing the new restrictions until July 1st when the expanded background checks come into effect where vetting for semi automatic begins

Renee Hopkins, the chief executive of the Alliance for Gun Responsibility said "the political grandstanding is disheartening. If they do not run background checks, we will have a huge problem"

Initiative 1639 passed with 60% of the Washington Voters, 9 months after it was voted when 17 people were killed at Parkland.

9 States approved the laws that allow temporary confiscation of weapons from people deemed a safety risk bringing the state total of 14.

For the first time in history, gun control groups outspent the NRA in the 2018 midterms as Trump directed the Justice Dept to ban so called "bump stocks" and the new Democratic Majority will hear its first gun control debate in decades

Dem. Jerrold Nadler said "For far too long, Republicans in Congress have offered moments of silence instead of actoin in the wake of gun tragedies. That era is over"

The new Washington initiative targets semi auto rifles like the AR-15 where they only fire once for each pull of the trigger but automatically eject and re-chamber a new round after each shot.

Sheriff Wade Magers said 75% of his voters, a very small county voted against the initiative and said these new rules are "unenforceable".

Carla Tolle of Kelso is a supporter of the initiative after he grandson was shot to death by a friend wielding a shotgun in 2017 that was ruled "accidental" and was shocked and dumbfounded to learn Cowlitz Sheriff, Brad Thurman will not enforce it after he witnessed what the death caused 2 families to split apart.

The NRA is fiercely fighting this who said the measure will have a "chilling effect" on the exercise of constitutional rights of "honest citizens" and have no impact on "criminals"

If all that law does is raise the restrictions for semi-automatic weapons I believe they should enforce the law. Also since this law isn't banning guns I don't see it being ruled unconstitutional.

Just FYI, the Washington state government would be within its power to fire those sheriffs, abolish their departments, or even abolish their counties entirely. Counties and cities don't have the kind of autonomy within a state as a state does within the US. They only have whatever power the state government delegates to them.

Yeah this is really embarrassing. These people like to go off about how they don't like the city deciding their laws or they want to be independant...yet they enjoy nice new state patrol vehicles, nice new roads, updated utilities etc, all brought to them by the taxpayers of the cities
