[PSA] Classified Ads and Following the Law

Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:38 am

Recently, we have been noticing an uptick in people attempting to be creative in wording their ads to bypass the recent law changes regarding background checks. This is NOT okay. Please reference the WaGuns Members Code of Conduct, specifically #'s 5 & 7.
...5) Compliance with Laws - All WaGuns users are expected to comply with all local, state and federal laws when posting on the site. Please be aware that the Administration of WaGuns will comply with all legitimate law enforcement requests for information related to active investigations.
...
7) Representing Our Community - It is expected that all members will represent our firearms community in a positive light. Do not post anything that may cause embarrassment to WaGuns or the firearms community in general.


When placing WTS/WTT/WTB ads, DO NOT try and word it to circumvent the law.

We understand (and share) your disgust with these new laws infringements. A lot of us chant silently (and some, not-so-silently) "We will not comply", "#F1639" etc. We get it, we do. However the buyer and seller decide to complete their transactions, privately, is their business and their business alone. All we ask is that when posting on WaGuns, we don't bring a negative light to this community by openly posting or suggesting that the transaction will break the law. We can't sit here and yell at our politicians and MSM to enforce the 23,000 laws on the books while openly saying fuck the law. At least, not yet.

We don't want to be known as the "Backdoor" of gun sites. We would like to be here, open and online to continue to help fight this fight. Please help us to do that.

Thanks all,
Dan, Steve and the Mod Squad

On the day you go to court, Google is not your friend. Post accordingly.

But is it a crime to buy without BGC?

Yes

I'm pretty sure it's only a crime to sell/transfer a firearm in this state without a BGC being performed, but not to buy.

https://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9.41.113

(2) No person shall sell or transfer a firearm unless: . . .


In other words, they would prosecute the transferor, not the transferee.
