Thousands at Hearing on Regulating Gun Magazines

More than 2,000 people signed into the Senate Law and Justice Committee for hearings on 3-D printed guns, high-capacity magazines, domestic violence, as well as proposed training requirements for legally obtaining a pistol.

Outside of the Legislative Building, a silver Toyota blaring music and displaying a sign bearing words from the Second Amendment circled the World War I memorial for most of the day Monday.

Legislation Regulating Gun Magazines had a hearing Wednesday

Most of the people who testified, including state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, spoke for or against Senate Bill 5062, which prohibits possessing, manufacturing or distributing ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

Similar legislation was unsuccessfully introduced into the state legislature last year.

Senate Bill 5061, covering 3-D printed and other “ghost guns,” was introduced by seven Democratic Senators at the request of Ferguson. A companion bill was introduced in the House by 17 state representatives.

The legislation would make it a Class C felony to knowingly manufacture, assemble, or facilitate any so-called “ghost gun.” Discharging or using a ghost gun in the commission of a felony would be a Class A felony.
