Opponents of I-594 Gather in House Gallery and Swap Guns

From Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

A group of 15 to 18 gun advocates did march into the Capitol.

They arrived in the House Gallery just as the state House of Representatives was adjourning.  They heckled members on the floor, and made a show of violating I-594 by exchanging weapons in the Gallery. A Washington State Patrol officer instructed one demonstrator on how to more safely hold his gun.

Civil Disobedience in Olympia Over I-594


As the RSVPs in advance of the rally grew to over 6,000, the police – most who probably detest I-594 – decided not to enforce the law. The Washington State Patrol announced there would be no arrests for exchanging guns – not even for selling guns. Seim refused to obtain a permit to hold the rally, citing the right of people to peaceably assemble.

If you can choose when to enforce or not enforce laws then what is the point of having laws in the first place?

Washington Sheriff Says I-594 Is Unenforceable

From San Juan Islander:

As a law enforcement officer, I know this is completely un-enforceable. Unless a cop is hiding in your living room when you make the sale, gift or loan, no one will ever know it happened and it won’t help solve the problem. Sadly, both sides have wasted multi-millions of dollars on this un-workable Initiative.
