Democrat lawmakers in Washington State will consider an assault weapons ban this week, as well as an end to ammunition magazines holding 11 rounds or more.
They legislation they are weighingHouse Bill 2241also tucks in .50 Cal. Rifles under the assault weapons moniker, banning those rifles alongside AR-15s.
KIRO7 reports that January 20-21 are the days on which committees will consider the bans.
The text of HB 2241 makes clear everything from an AK-47 or AR-15 to a SKS and Barrett .50 Cal M107A1 would be prohibited, as would a semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.
In other words, .50 Cal rifles longer than 30 inches would be banned and rimfire rifles under 30 inches would also be banned.
As for magazines, HB 2241 defines a high capacity magazine as an ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition, or any conversion kit, part, or combination of parts, from which such a device can be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.
On January 13, 2020, Breitbart News reported Gov. Jay Inslee (D) was pushing the assault weapons ban and the ban on magazines holding 11 rounds or more.

Has there been a swarm of 50 caliber murders there lately?
These are hoplophobic democrats.
How many liquour stores are robbwd by people with .50 rifles?
“...rimfire rifles under 30 inches would also be banned.”
They’re banning .22 rifles? Tin cans and skunks can sleep peacefully tonight, the latter underneath the henhouse.
Well, this will stop the home invasion robberies. /s
The bullets are big and scary looking. “Hoplophobic”; Priceless. Next, assault tractors.
They are sowing the wind.
One of the home occupants used a .50 caliber rifle on the home invader, and a Washington lawmaker is mourning his dear departed cousin? And he wanted to marry him so that he would change;^E)
That way we won't have to listen to all of the liberals run their mouths.
What's good for the 2nd is good for the 1st.
Will they go door to door to confiscate? I know Democrats there that will not go along with the program.
They're not even trying to hide it anymore.
LOL Get outa here...
Oooh, what happened to “sensible” and “reasonable” gun control “restrictions?”
“Barrett .50 Cal M107A1 “
LOL, how random. Near impossible to hide, bolt action, about 25-26 lbs(?), and probably never been used in any murder, at about $11,000 I question how many are even in WA State. But let’s ban them.
Find your WA state representative and senator here and write them.
States that voted blue recently, but with substantial hinterlands full of deplorables are targeted.
Those gun collectors will have to fill those .50 Cal. barrels with lead.
Maybe....we should let it happen. Won’t they be easier to take over when they are defenseless?
Fill the chamber with brass.
