Magazine Capacity Ban Legislation Very Much Alive in Washington State.
Back in January 2021, magazine capacity ban legislation was introduced in both the Washington State House and Senate. Despite being stagnant for nearly a year, Senate Bill 5078 looks to be on the move in 2022. In fact, Senate Bill 5078 was passed through the full Washington State Senate on 02/09/22 by a vote of 28 to 20. It now will head over to the House for consideration.
Of note, on Monday, February 7th Senate Bill 5078 was amended to state that "large-capacity" magazines are those capable of holding 10 rounds of ammunition or more. Originally, SB 5078 defined "large-capacity" magazines as those being capable of holding 17 rounds or more. Previously, another amendment had been offered to limit magazine capacity to 12 rounds or more, but it appears they opted for the more extreme option.
