80,000 people died from the flu last year. Counting suicides, gang murders, and everything, guns were used whaT, about half of that? Get real, guns are just like hammers or pipe wrenches, they are tools. More laws only affect good guys, bad guys could care less. Going to prison just doesn’t deter them, it does us.
Benton County Sheriff Jerry Hatcher says he’s against a series of bills aiming to increase gun restrictions in Washington state. In a statement Friday, Hatcher listed five bills (HB2240, HB2241, SB6076, SB6077, HB2519) that would limit the types of firearms citizens can purchase, magazine capacity and require background checks on ammunition.
“Upon further review of the bills, it is clear they would infringe on a citizen’s rights to bear arms under the Washington State Constitution and under the U.S. Constitution and will face legal challenges within the courts,” Hatcher said.
