Civil Disobedience: Thousands of WA Residents Will Break the State’s New Background Check Law
After several anti-gun billionaires donated tens of millions of dollars to support i-594, Washington state’s background check initiative, it looks like WA will now have some of the strictest gun transfer laws in the country.
Simply loaning a firearm to a friend could be construed as a felony under the new law.
The law was likely passed as many voters didn’t really realize the full scope of the extremely restrictive set of laws and regulations. I highly doubt most Washington voters realized they were voting for one of the strictest laws of its kind in the nation.
Well, thousands of gun owners in Washington aren’t taking the issue lying down. According to the RSVP count on a Facebook event page called “i594 I Will NOT Comply!” over 5,000 gun owners will meet in front of the state capitol in December and break the law on purpose.
Here is the description of the event:
We’re not waiting for politicians, judges or lawyers. Our birthright is NOT to be touched. We call on our Sheriffs, local representatives and legislators to stand with us and uphold their oaths.
The Constitution is the supreme law and our God given rights are NOT open for negotiation. We choose to uphold the law as peacefully and principled as possible, but it will be upheld.
We will buy and sell guns from whom we please, we will not submit to background checks, we will not give up our rights, WE WILL NOT Comply.
We will rally at the capital, openly exchange guns, unveil and plan to break apart the entire legislation and violate i594 in every possible way. Because ALL law that violates the Constitution is not law, it is VOID!
This is being organized by the Gavin Seim for Liberty and Anthony Bosworth For Sheriff teams. Please show up. If you want to help with logistics you can pitch in a few bucks here: http://callmegav.com/donate/
