WA Lawmaker Seeks To Repeal Gun-sale Background Checks

(Olympia, WA)  --  An Eastern Washington lawmaker says he wants to repeal the voter-approved initiative that requires background checks for private gun sales.  Republican Representative Matt Shea of Spokane Valley says he'll introduce legislation to repeal I-594, which passed in 2014 with 59 percent of the vote.  Renee Hopkins, chief executive officer of the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, tells the "Spokesman-Review" voters made it clear they wanted the background checks, which are required for firearm sales made outside of stores, including many private sales and gun shows.
