SB 442 would allow for any CPL holder to request an exemption from the “Pistol Free Areas.” There would be no fee if the request is made at initial licensing, or upon renewal. 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. Hearings have not been held yet. In other words, it is early in the legislative process. No vote has been taken as of the date of writing this article.

SAF: It’s Not the Supreme Court That’s Wrong on the 2A, It’s Hillary

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.”

Audio of her remarks was released by the Washington Free Beacon. In that audio, Clinton can be heard stating, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment and I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

“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
