Until it has been declared DEAD, SB 5737 – 2013-14, sponsored by Washington State Senate Majority Leader Ed Murray, deserves to be publicized. Why? First, the proposed legislation would place gross restrictions upon our 2nd and 4th Amendment Rights, but, also, the sheer fact that we have elected officials in our WA state legislature who would even propose such legislation should serve as a constant reminder that there is clearly an anti-2nd Amendment movement, an anti-gun agenda, and an anti-freedom agenda very much at play in our state, in our County, and in our locale, and those who serve those agendas are are only TOO HAPPY to dance on the graves of the dead children who died in Newtown, CT at the hands of a law-breaking madman.
Ed Murray promoted legalizing homosexual marriage and marijuana use in Washington State. Ed now wants to allow yearly warrantless searches of private residences to look for assault rifles.
As the Senate Majority Leader, Ed Murray is no inexperienced legislator. Suggestions by the bill’s originators that this proposed legislation was simply an “oopsie!”- type error are entirely bogus at face value. This kind of legislation is EXACTLY what the Democrats want to enact.
Folks who tell you to ignore this issue along with telling you things like “Don’t worry! This will never make it out of committee!” or “It will never get passed!” are simply fooling themselves and are trying to fool you, too! That’s the same “line” that now-WA-State Senator Barbara Bailey told me year after year after year when I asked her REPEATEDLY NOT to vote for reducing the 60% super-majority for excess property tax levies down to the simple 50% super-majority. Instead, she kept voting for it, and..she eventually got it passed.
All you folks who voted for Jay Inslee for WA State Governor, plus all you folks who keep voting to support things like the K-12 teachers’ unions growth within the the K-12 establishment by voting for local school district levies – a union which sends ALL its money to the Democrats – you people are helping the Democrats create and perennially push legislation like Ed Murray’s latest fiasco.
