This brings us to HB 1371; The Firearms Freedom Act. Sponsored by Representative David Taylor, it was originally introduced on January 24th of this year, and was sent to the House Judiciary Committee, which is where it currently resides.
HB 1371 states the following; ” Article 1, Section 24 of the Washington state Constitution clearly secures to Washington citizens, and prohibits government interference with, the right of individual Washington citizens to keep and bear arms.” Noting the oft misused commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution it goes on to say that ” a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Washington and that remains within the borders of Washington is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is declared by the legislature that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce.”
