Shea releases statement on his legislation to repeal I-1639

Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley, introduced bipartisan legislation today to repeal I-1639. Shea released the following statement regarding his proposal, House Bill 2103:

“Initiative 1639 is unconstitutional in many respects and punishes law-abiding citizens, while doing nothing to keep firearms away from criminals. We live in a Republic, not a Democracy. A Republic is based on the rule of law which means every law that is passed must be constitutional. It is very clear this initiative is not, and thus the reason for the repeal.”
