The WA House voted overwhelmingly to pass bill 1016 to allow silencer use.  The companion bill 5112 was passed out of the Senate Judiciary committee with a do pass recommendation.  Next stop is the Rules committee then the Senate floor for a vote.  If it passes this session, then the new law goes into effect 90 days after the session on July 23. 

 

I want to hold a silencer shoot at the KRRC on that day.  Come on by and help us celebrate.

88-4 in the House, 47-0 in the Senate. The Gov has five days to sign or veto it, otherwise it becomes law. She is unlikely to veto given the votes. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1016&year=2011

The law goes into effect 90 days after the session ends on April 24. This means Saturday July 23, I will be at the range making a bit less noise, unless the shipyard sends me to work in California. :(
