    http://apps.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/Default.aspx

    Please contact them and urge them to support

    HB 1052 - 2009-10

    This will reinstate issuing of the AFL to non-immigrant aliens

    AND aparently

    Drop the requirement for LPRs aka Green Card Holders... as the license is a violation of your 14th and 2nd A rights guaranteed to you once you obtained your Green Card.

    Thank you for your time...


    PS theres's a catch...

    This was veteod last year...


    And it is coming quicker than you think...

    Jan 15 2009 Scheduled for public hearing in the House Committee on Judiciary at 10:00 AM in anticipation of other legislative action.

    This bill also seems to change some provisions regarding CPL's for the rest of us. I have not taked a real close look yet to determine what the effect of those changes are.

    #1 Judge sided with first NRA case, injunction issued, now judge needs to sign it, and DOL need to "get off the pot" maybe literally on that one.. ya never know.

    #2 HB1052 to be heard Jan 29, sounds good so far, I've been called by most of the Judiciary members or their underlings, they want it done ASAP

    #3 NRA case 2 is in August, sees if WA will drop LPR's requirement for AFL, as it is a breach of 14th amendment, as LPRs are "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof"...

    Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Please contact everyone in the Judiciary and Rules committes, we still have a very important HB to get passed.

    HB1052 needs to pass, this will make it so that LPR no longer have to get an AFL.

    Form letter for green card holders in WA State

    RE: HB 1052-2009 as sponsored by Representative Moeller et. Al.

    Currently in Washington State, all Legal Permanent Resident Aliens, also known as "Green Card Holders" or “LPRs”, are required to obtain an Alien Firearms License from the Washington State Department of Licensing if they choose to own, borrow, rent or even as so much as hold a firearm, without fear of prosecution leading to deportation. This is in accordance to the current RCWs such as 9.41.070, 9.41.097, 9.41.0975, & 9.41.170 etc.

    Amendment XIV, Section 1 of the United States Constitution states the following:

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


    In the remaining 49 States of the Union, LPRs are not subject to any such licensing. In the case of compulsory licensing for LPRs who reside in Washington State; it appears quite clearly that Washington State is, at present, in violation of the 14th amendment rights of all Legal Permanent Residents.

    Washington State HB 1052-2009 has been proposed to eliminate the current discriminatory situation against LPRs. The laws affected and or modified by the passing of HB1052-2009 do not affect the mandatory licensing for Non-Immigrant Aliens; therefore the amended law(s) would not be in direct contradiction of Federal Laws.

    As a Legal Permanent Resident who currently resides in Washington State, and is directly affected by the current RCWs, I would hope that you would be in favor of amending such discriminatory laws by supporting the immediate passing of HB1052-2009.


    Thank you for the honor of your time.

    Form letter for WA State US citizens that know about 1052 or have friends or spouses that are affected, change acquaintance to husband, or wife...
