Gun laws change on July 1

Washington state is set to implement stricter gun laws beginning on July 1. Gun shops around the state have been overrun for the past month with transactions by firearm enthusiasts looking to complete purchases before the change commences. For some the time has already run out while others are still looking to make a few more purchases before the clock strikes 11:59 p.m. on June 30.

Time has run out for some

Handgun purchasers who currently hold a concealed pistol license (CPL) are still able to make same day purchases for handguns but those who don't are running out of time. Anyone without a CPL has to fill out a form that is sent to their local law enforcement agency who runs a background check to ensure the purchaser is eligible for a firearm on top of the standard NICS background check through the FBI.

Once either cleared by the local agency or a ten day waiting period has passed, the purchaser can pick up their firearm. Time has now run out for the 10 day waiting period for those without CPL's wishing to buy a handgun before July 1. They are now at the mercy of the speed of their local agency. Any purchases not finalized before July 1 will be referred to the new law with the entire process possibly restarted according to firearm dealers.
