If the request is made during the term of a CPL license, there would be a fee up to $20 for the issuance of a new license. This bill has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today fired back at Democrat Hillary Clinton, who claimed that the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment, saying that it is Clinton who is actually wrong, and that it is “disturbing that someone running for president would show such little respect for a constitutional right.”

“If anybody is wrong about the Second Amendment,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “it’s Hillary Clinton. She has spent a career working to disarm average citizens, and she now wants to become president in hopes of making her anti-gun philosophy the law of the land.” Read more
