State of Washington Initiative 1639, Guns

I-1639 would raise the age to purchase semiautomatic rifles from 18 to 21 and require more extensive background checks, so buying one of those rifles would have the same limitations as buying a handgun in Washington state. It would also require gun owners to keep their firearms in locked storage or otherwise secured in the home when not in use.

State of Washington Initiative 940, Deadly Force

Washington’s law says police officers can’t be held criminally liable in deadly force incidents unless they act with malice. I-940 would remove malice as a requirement in order to charge an officer involved in a deadly force incident. Instead, an officer would be protected against prosecution if deadly force met both objective and subjective good-faith tests. An objective good-faith test means the officer believed deadly force was necessary to prevent death or serious harm to himself or someone else. A subjective test means the officer believed there was a lawful purpose and it was warranted under the circumstances.
