REPLY FROM REP. DON BENTON (17TH DISTRICT) ON HR 2264 GUN SHOW SALES

STATE SENATOR DON BENTON

STATE SENATOR DON BENTON

Thank you so much for contacting me with your concerns about HB2264. I always enjoy hearing from my constituents, especially when we are in such complete agreement.

Rest assured that I will do all I can to oppose such blatant draconian efforts to punish law-abiding individuals just because the government is afraid of an armed populace. I am and have been a firm defender of our second amendment rights. I have also taken an oath to defend the Washington State Constitution which says in part “The right of an individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired”. I will continue to speak up for the law and will be sure to oppose HB2264.

Thank you again for e-mailing me and if you have any other questions or concerns feel free to contact me by phone (360-786-7632) or e-mail (Benton.don@leg.wa.gov).

Sincerely,
Don Benton
State Senator
Seventeeth District

BILL:  2264 (Against)

SUBJECT:  HR 2264 sale of firearms at gun shows and events 2 amending RCW 9.41.010 adding a new section to chapter 9.41 RCW

MY LETTER:

Having read through this Bill, I see no legitimate use for it other than just a tool to further open the door to further punitive restrictions on law abiding gun owners and is another back door assault on the 2nd Amendment.  I strongly urge a down vote on this as we already have adequate background check laws on the books.  As always, I follow your voting record and use it as a guide to my own voting come the next election cycle.  Any further legislation aimed at the 2nd Amendment will be watched closely by all voters who are concerned about this ever increasing encroachment on this important and foundation Amendment.
