Washington Needs to Restrict Large Capacity Magazines

Both Senate and House committees have passed legislation to limit magazine size for ammunition to 15 rounds. Eight other states and the District of Columbia have enacted similar restrictions which have been upheld in the courts despite opposition from gun rights groups. SHB 5062 and SHB 1068 are in Rules Committee and need to be brought to the floor for a vote. 

In addition to the 28 mass shootings in the past five years involving high capacity magazines, we nearly had our own episode in Washington in 2017. The only thing that stopped the shooter was a jam in his assault-style rifle.

Please bring these bills to a vote and pass to improve our public safety.
