If you understand the political demographics of the state of Washington, you would not be surprised that an anti-gun initiative is likely heading to the November ballot. The state has a population of 7.5 million people with 3.73 million of them living the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan area, an area controlled by extremely leftist socialist Democrats who have been rebelling against everything American.

Initiative 1639 calls for a number of gun control measures to be implemented, including banning bump-fire stocks, sale of military-style semi-automatic rifles and more.

Gun rights groups contend that the petitions wording on petitions for the initiative is too small to read and that the petitions do not fully explain the changes to state law. They filed a legal challenge to block the acceptance of these petitions, but a judge denied their request, leaving the decision to the Secretary of State of whether or not to accept the petitions.

(The Spokesman-Review) – The Washington Supreme Court will not give gun-rights groups the order they requested to keep a gun control initiative off the November ballot.

Court Commissioner Michael Johnston ruled Tuesday the law doesn’t allow opponents to have the court order Secretary of State Kim Wyman to reject petitions for Initiative 1639 that are expected to be submitted later this week.

I-1639 calls for several changes in state gun control laws, including a ban on bump stocks and restrictions on the sale of military-style semi-automatic rifles. Some parts of the initiative have been proposed in the Legislature but never passed.

The Second Amendment Foundation, the Citizens Right to Keep and Bear Arms and some voters asked the court Friday to keep Wyman from processing the petitions, contending the print is so small it’s unreadable and the changes in law aren’t properly marked on the petitions…

It seems that there is a concerted race between California, New York and Washington to see who can pass the most and strictest gun control laws that will withstand legal challenges by those who support the Second Amendment. The only difference is that when Washington’s legislature failed to pass the same gun control bills, gun control groups decided to take it to voters.
