OLYMPIA Attorney General Bob Ferguson has introduced two bills to the state legislature that he said will help reduce deadly mass shootings.
One is a previously announced proposal to ban the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
The other is a second, alternative bill enhancing background checks and raising the minimum age required to buy such weapons and magazines.
“I believe a ban on the sale of assault weapons is the right policy for Washington, and I will keep fighting for that,” Ferguson said.
