The Proposed HB 1240 in the state of Washington would enact an Assault Weapons Ban making over 60 models of semi-automatic firearms illegal in the state. This would include larger groups of firearms, such as ARs and AKs but also extends to any semi-automatic firearm with a detachable magazine that meets certain criteria such as: telescoping stock, threaded barrel, muzzle break, or pistol grip, also extending to semi-auto pistols or shotguns. This comes as a response to what Washington lawmakers are calling a “public health threat.”
Stag Arms is taking action by sending team members to the front lines in Washington state to support law-abiding, gun owners. Stag is setting up a forward operation base to deliver extra support to local gun store owners and dealers across the state. The team is also helping process thousands of orders and expediting shipping while the clock ticks down to the bill being signed into law. Team Stag has been seen handing out swag and snacks to all those that are standing in long lines at local firearms retailers. As talk of more AWB legislation becomes prevalent in other states, such as our neighboring Colorado, Stag Arms plans to launch similar support efforts to states finding themselves in a similar situation.
