HB 1240 in the state of Washington has been making its way through the state house halls, and it looks like this will pass into law soon. 

Banning over 60 models of semi-automatic firearms, this would also ban basically all ARs, AKs, and really any semi-automatic firearm with a detachable magazine plus one more “evil feature.” Those features include telescoping stocks, threaded barrels, a muzzle brake, or a pistol grip. This ban would also extend to semi-automatic pistols and shotguns.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that for residents of Washington, this apocalypse hasn’t gone into law – yet.

Stag Arms and others are on the front lines in Washington, helping fight this madness and helping residents prepare for the worst.

Not only is Stag Arms expediting shipping to WA residents, but they are also on the ground in Washington to deliver support to gun store owners and dealers across the state. They’re even handing out swag to Washingtonians trapped in long lines at the gun store.


If you live in the great State of Washington, contact The Washington State Legislature Office at 1.800.562.6000 or [email protected] and let them know your second amendment rights are under attack.

If you don’t live in Washington, consider donating to pro-2A groups that are fighting for our rights. And if you order anything in the next few weeks, understand that your order might come second to orders placed in WA. This could result in some shipping delays.
