Legislation in Washington state is out of hand. They would have us believe that homicide by firearm is at epidemic proportions and that we need to enact new laws to ban certain types of firearms they call "assault weapons" and impose gross infringements on our individual liberties.


They often cite misleading data in order to instill fear and win over those who are uninformed in the facts. The fact of the matter is that there is no epidemic nationally or here in Washington state. The FBI's own Unified Crime Reports back up that statement. Shown above is a chart graphing homicides from 1995 through 2017 and how they relate to various types of firearms and firearms as a whole.

Would you believe that there are people who would want to steal your liberty over numbers like these?
