HB 1016, SB 5112 Washington Suppressor Bill

The house already passed HB 1016, SB 5112 is the Senate Companion Bill.  It was scheduled for a second reading today.  A public hearing with the Senate Judiciary Committee has been scheduled for March 9th, at 1:30 PM.

If the date or time change I will update it here.  If you can make it, please go and show your support.

My original letter can be seen here.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    Thanks for the update – I check on the status of 1016 and 5112 everyday and will keep an aye on the status of the hearing. Good to find out about another western Washington blogger too.

      Sadly(for you) I’m not a Western Washington blogger, I’m an Eastern Washington blogger. Though you can probably count me as Western Washington since that’s where I grew up. I can’t stand Western Washington anymore.

      I’m actually so far East in Washington that I’m often a Northern Idaho, Eastern Washington blogger.

      I’m glad you’re keeping an eye on it. If you can make it to the public hearing please do. I can’t currently make it, and even if I took the time off there’s a possibility they would have rescheduled it. Instead I call offices and send letters. In face though is always the best.

    Ah, ok – I need to spend a little more time poking around your blog! We hope to end up in eastern WA as the better half is from Spokane and still has a ton of family back there.

    Heads Up
    Five people showed up to support, none opposed. Senator Kline acknowledged that bill 1016 is the same as bill 5112 and that there was no reason 1016 leave without a “do pass” recommendation.

    The video of today’s hearing also included an executive session in which bill 1016 was referred out of committee with a “do pass” recommendation.
