We can’t go a minute in this country without some kind of assault on our gun rights. The problem is many of the incursions against 2A happen at the state level.
The latest perfect example comes from the Evergreen state, where Washington lawmakers just snuck through a high-capacity mag ban. This bill is very strict and prohibits gun retailers from selling any magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds.
It also makes it illegal for Washingtonians to own, import, or make any mags over 10 rounds.
Cracking Down on Citizens’ Rights
There’s no doubt this bill will become law.
Washington’s Governor Jay Inslee is a far-left liberal and a committed anti-gun activist. He marched with violent BLM rioters in the summer of 2020, while demanding everyone else stay home, due to COVID.
He’s a complete hypocrite with no respect for our Constitution who’s obsessed with climate change and the Green New Deal. Inslee is going to make this bill into law and splash his signature all over it.
However, there is one silver lining that will bring a lot of relief to Washington state residents. Those who already own weapons with mags that are higher than 10 rounds won’t have to turn them in and won’t be breaking the law.
It only applies to new guns sold, bought, imported, or distributed in any way. It’s small comfort, but it’s something.
So Washington state just passed a law banning gun magazines that have a capacity of anything over 10 rounds.
Guess who’s exempt? Cops.

The mag restriction applies to all citizens of Washington state and people in the state, but there is one special exception. Police officers can have higher magazine rounds and are not subject to the restrictions of the new bill.
This is one rare case where BLM, Antifa, libertarians, and conservatives can likely see eye-to-eye. They can all agree a nation with a lightly-armed citizenry, where only the cops have powerful weapons, is not a place you want to be.
If you want that, you may as well go to Mexico. Corrupt cops there work hand-in-hand with narcoterrorist cartels and ordinary people aren’t allowed weapons to defend themselves.
Washington state Democrats finally did something good for the economy…
30 minute wait at the gun shop today thanks to their insane new magazine ban that has no hope of stopping any crime

The Left Brags
The left is bragging about this new law and saying it will save lives and stop school shootings. This makes no sense and is false.
This won’t stop gun violence in Washington state or even reduce it. It will just take powerful guns out of the hands of legal owners and make sure they stay in the black market and in the hands of killers and thugs.
Inslee and his friends want to be able to claim they’re stopping gun violence by putting more restrictions on guns, but there’s no data to back up that this works.
This is just a Democrat photo-op and nothing more; it’s also going to have a real downward effect on the safety of those living in the Evergreen State.
