The state of Washington has a gun control ballot measure that is being proposed for the upcoming elections. Ballot Initiative 594 could turn the simple act of lending another person your firearm without a background check from a licensed dealer illegal. Yes, that includes letting your friends borrow your gun at the range.
“I-594 is a law so broadly written that it clearly is designed to make criminals of all recreational shooters and most law enforcement officers.”
Crazy right? But yet a real possibility with Billionaire bill gates throwing money at Ballot Initiative 594. According to the NRA there are almost no exceptions in Ballot Initiative 594 for loaning firearms to family members or friends.
