Bills that would have limited how many rounds can be stored in gun magazines and what guns can be sold did not pass in Olympia. Neither bill was approved before Wednesday's 5 p.m. deadline. Lawmakers knew earlier this month the proposed ban on firearms defined as assault weapons did not have the votes to proceed.

Yet, Red Flag laws are making a clean sweep. I been telling you Boaz, the best way to keep your firearms is to not be a vocal hero. Don't register them and do not tell people you have them.

Knowing someone has guns does not deter thieves, it attracts them. They just have to be not stupid enough to try to enter your home while you're in it. Turns out you don't even need a high school education to figure out if someone is home or not.

Limiting magazine size makes sense to me, as various shooters have been tackled while reloading.
Sales of specific types of guns, not so much.
If it were "all handguns" then yes, since nearly all murders are with handguns; otherwise, not so much.
