Gun Groups Challenge Washington State Magazine Ban

Washington state high capacity magazine mag ban SB 5079 FPC lawsuit challenge
Graphic from NRA-ILA which worked to prevent passage of Washington S.B. 5078.

The Washington State legislature has passed a new statute which will prohibit the purchase, sale, or transfer of firearms magazines which hold more than ten (10) rounds. This new law, Washington Senate Bill 5078, goes into effect on July 1, 2022. This new Washington law has a “grandfather” clause that allows current owners of large-capacity mags to retain them. However, no one may transfer such magazines in the state after 7/1/2022.

The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) plans to file legal actions to challenge the new Washington state magazine bans. The FPC issued this statement:

By enacting the unconstitutional S.B. 5078, the State of Washington has further restricted the fundamental human rights of Washington residents and visitors by banning the transfer and other conduct related to so-called “large capacity” magazines. FPC condemns this latest act of state aggression and will not allow this law to go unchallenged. To that end, FPC Law will be taking aggressive action to fight this immoral law and seek to have it enjoined and declared unconstitutional.

In S.B. 5078, the State banned the manufacture, import, distribution, sale, or offering for sale any large capacity magazine, which is now defined (with some minor exceptions) as ammunition feeding devices with the capacity to accept more than 10 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 possession of or under the control of the same person.

The bill also makes distributing, selling, offering for sale, or facilitating the sale, distribution, or transfer of a large capacity magazine online an unfair or deceptive act or practice or unfair method of competition in the conduct of trade or commerce for purposes of the State’s consumer protection act.
