Gun ban bills in three states, including Wash., could make citizens criminals
Democrat lawmakers in three states, including Washington, have introduced legislation that would ban possession of so-called “assault weapons” with criminal penalties under certain circumstances, and also provide for their surrender to law enforcement.

This is a response from Pam Roach:
Thank you for writing me about SB 5737, introduced yesterday. I appreciate your prompt diligence for contacting me about this bill.
The only good thing about SB 5737 is that it has no chance to become law. This bill has been referred to the Senate Law & Justice Committee on which I serve. The majority makeup of that committee and the disposition of the chair, I expect this bill will remain bottled up in committee and die quietly, same as other gun control measures that must pass this committee.
By the same token, any House bills on gun control that pass out of the House would proceed to the Senate and be heard in Law & Justice. I would expect them to be dead on arrival.
MORE ACTION>>> But I do recommend that you contact the office of Senator Mike Padden, chair of the Law and Justice Committee to echo your remarks. Chairman Padden directs which bills are heard in his committee and which do not get a hearing - thus rendering them dead. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, office phone: (360) 786-7606. Sen. Padden is probably the single most influential person in this legislature for stopping any gun control measures.
You can always count on my support to oppose any measures that would limit the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens – every single time!
Thank you for your outreach.

Wrote to my state senator. Didn't expect much and got better than I expected:
Thank you ******* for your email. I want you to know that I support the rights of law abiding citizens to own and bear arms. As an emergency medicine doctor that has seen the effect of gun violence on so many, I have to believe that there is something that can be done. I support a reasonable balanced approach and will evaluate each bill as it progresses to the senate floor to ensure that it does not infringe upon the rights of legal gun owners. As it stands now, I do not believe I will be supporting SB 5737.
Thank you for your email and your time in sharing your views. Thanks again, Nathan

"Thank you for your message in regards to gun control and the right to bear arms in the United States. I appreciate you taking the time to voice your opinion on this very contentious matter.
I have always been a strong proponent of our 2nd amendment rights, and I fully support a person’s right to bear arms. In the wake of the recent tragedies that have unfolded across the nation, there have been calls for an outright ban on assault weapons as well as other measures that would infringe upon the rights of the individual. While I am deeply saddened by what has occurred in our country in recent months, I do not believe banning weapons is the answer. In the midst of such a heated debate, it is important for both sides to find some common ground and work together to seek a pragmatic, logical approach to put an end to mass tragedies. However, it is clear that infringing on law abiding citizens’ rights is not the answer and will not solve the problems we face.
Rest assured, having served in the United States Army in both Kosovo and Iraq, I understand the responsibility that comes with our right to bear arms and will continue to protect our 2nd Amendment rights in the future. Thank you so much for taking the time to contact my office, and please continue to do so should you have any questions or comments.
