Owner of lost/stolen gun may be in deep doo-doo after WA shooting

4068 109
Since 2018 we've had a slew of bad gun laws on the books in WA, starting with I-1639 (approved by voters) which among many things makes gun owners liable if their firearms are not secured and they end up in the wrong hands. A Snohomish County man might be the first to be charged under this new law if he can't give a good explanation to the police as to how a Glock he owned somehow got lost or stolen, and weeks later was used in a fatal school shooting.

Giving any further explanation to the police will just give them and the DA/County Attorney a story to pick apart. He or she should stand on his or her right to remain silent and consult an attorney if needed.
