A proposed initiative on the November ballot would make some sensible improvements to Washington state gun laws and save lives. Voters should say yes to Initiative 1639. The proposal would raise the minimum purchase age from 18 to 21 for semi-automatic rifles, establish new safe-storage rules and require safety training before buying any kind of gun or rifle.

State preemption aside, if the initiative passes and state law changes to include this ordinance, it will still violate the law according to the Supreme Court of the United States, which ruled specifically in D.C. v. Heller (later incorporated to bind the states and their subdivisions by McDonald v. Chicago) that mandating that firearms in the home be locked up and unloaded (or otherwise disabled) facially violates the Second Amendment's core right of self-defense.

D.C. v. Heller (2008)
"Held:

3)...the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a
trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of
self-defense and is hence unconstitutional."

UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Period.

For those that continually seek to undermine our Constitutional form of government.
