Hi I’m Marla. Gimme A Minute. I wanna talk to you about the Second Amendment.
I support the right of responsible citizens to own guns.
I hope you agree with me, that violent criminals and those considered to be a threat to society should NOT have access to guns.
The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility is a coalition of concerned citizens and organizations working together to forge commonsense solutions to reduce gun violence. Initiative 594 will require universal background checks for all gun sales in Washington State.
Yes, licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks on all sales.
But, there’s a loophole. Some Private sellers at gun shows and on the Internet sell guns with no background check and no questions asked.
Law enforcement agencies and public safety officials agree that this loophole promotes illegal gun trafficking, and enables individuals with criminal intent to purchase firearms. Currently, sixteen states and Washington, DC, go beyond federal law by requiring a background check for all private handgun sales. It’s shown that this legislation reduces Guns trafficked to other States, police killed with handguns, aggravated assaults, suicide, and women murdered by intimate partners.
Let’s make it harder for criminals in Washington State to get access to guns. Please vote Yes on Initiative 594 in November.
