(Olympia, WA)  --  The legislative journey is over for a bill intended to crack down on illegal gun purchasers in Washington state.  House Bill 1501 easily passed in the House and a Senate committee, but didn't make it to the full Senate for a floor vote before the 5 p.m. deadline yesterday.  The measure was aimed at the roughly four-thousand people each year in Washington who try but fail to buy firearms.  It's illegal for prohibited buyers to attempt to purchase a gun, and lying about eligibility is a violation of state and federal laws.  But KING-5 has reported that police agencies that conduct the background checks don't follow up on those denied purchases.
