Mission Statement

The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility is a coalition of concerned citizens and organizations working together to forge commonsense solutions to reduce gun violence. We support the Second Amendment right of citizens to own guns. We also believe with that right comes basic responsibilities. As a society we are responsible for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and promoting solutions that reduce gun violence.

Description

We all agree that violent criminals and other threats to society should not possess firearms. That’s why licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks on all their sales. However, there is a hole in our laws that allow criminals and other dangerous people to go to "private sellers" at gun shows, on the Internet, and elsewhere to buy guns with no background check and no questions asked. Law enforcement agencies and public safety officials agree that this loophole promotes illegal gun trafficking and enables individuals with criminal intent to purchase firearms. That is why the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility is sponsoring Initiative 594, which will be on the November 2014 ballot. This initiative will simply ensure that a background check is conducted for every gun purchase.

The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization formed in January of 2013. We have a leadership committee of over 100 organizations and civic leaders from throughout the state.
