ILA | Washington: Senate Committee Vote Scheduled on Bill to Bankrupt Firearm Industry

Gun News

On Friday, the Senate Ways & Means Committee will hold an executive session and likely vote on Senate Bill 5078, to allow anti-gun zealots to bankrupt the firearm industry with frivolous lawsuits. NRA testified in opposition to SB 5078 at the committee’s January 31st hearing. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5078.

Senate Bill 5078 aims to undermine the PLCAA and subject licensed firearm manufacturers and sellers to frivolous lawsuits brought to recover damages for the criminal misuse of their products. Protecting the firearms industry, like other lawful industries, is necessary because our legal system generally does not punish anyone for the criminal actions of others. This bill simply seeks to sue the firearms industry out of existence in the state of Washington. The firearms industry supplies thousands of jobs in Washington and the excise tax on the sale and purchase of firearms, ammunition, and accessories produces millions of dollars for conservation in our state from Pittman-Robertson funds. This bill will eliminate thousands of jobs and deprive the state of millions of dollars annually. Without the firearms industry, Washingtonians will not have access to firearms and ammunition and the fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Again, please contact committee members asking them to OPPOSE SB 5078.
