I-1639 would create some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Will it save lives?


SEATTLE-- Statewide Initiative 1639 would create some of the strongest gun regulations in the county.

It would:

Increase the legal age to buy a semiautomatic rifle from 18 to 21-years-old in Washington state.
Created enhanced background checks to buy those weapons.
Add a 10 day waiting period to purchase a semiautomatic rifle.
Require gun owners to safely store their weapons or face criminal charges.

Supporters say this is needed to stop mass shootings. Opponents say it hurts gun owners who are following the law.

One of the people pushing the initiative is Paul Kramer. His son Will survived a shooting at a house party in Mukilteo in July 30th, 2016,

Then-19-year old Allen Ivanov stormed the house with his newly purchased semi-automatic rifle, killing Jacob Long, Anna Bui, and Jordan Ebner. All of the victims were 19 at the time, and all were graduates of Kamiak High School in Mukilteo.

“In the midst of the grief, I was feeling from that," Kramer said, "I reflected long and hard about how something like that could happen in our community.”
