Attorney General Bob Ferguson proposed legislation on Monday that would ban the sale of assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines in Washington.Recognizing the political difficulty of such a bill, Ferguson also released an alternative on Monday: a bill that would keep assault-style weapons legal but would make them more difficult to buy, by raising the minimum age to legally own such a firearm and requiring them to be licensed, similar to a concealed-weapons license…
…The draft bill released Monday, the first day of the 2017 Legislature, would ban semi-automatic rifles that have a detachable magazine and a pistol grip beneath the barrel. It would also ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition and semi-automatic pistols with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition
So I took the time to read the proposed bill and…yup, you can tell it is coming from the Bloomberg Legal Boilerplate Team because it almost reads like word for word like the one introduced in Florida just a little while back.
About the only Earth-Shattering difference is the our Carpetbagger is asking for 7 round magazines and Washington’s Carpetbagger is more generous and allowing for 10 rounds. I haven’t read much since I am on my way to bed (this post was written at Zero OMFG is late Hundred) but I am going to give it a bit more study later on.
I am starting to have the suspicion that Bloomberg is pissed that a New Yorker became POTUS so he is going to be a Shadow POTUS from his Uppity Loft in Manhattan.
He is indeed a Nasty Little Fascist as Michael Bane puts it.
