OLYMPIA, Wash. – Lawmakers in Olympia are back in full-swing debating gun control reforms. Monday morning, the Senate Law & Justice Committee heard public testimony for several bills.
Senate Bill 6077 would prohibit any person in Washington state from manufacturing, possessing, distributing, importing, transferring, selling, or purchasing “large-capacity magazines.”
Exceptions include people who already own such magazines, as well as law enforcement officers. The bill defines “large-capacity magazines” as “an ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition.”
