A Washington State Patrol trooper is shot and killed on duty. A 9-year-old girl is shot at school. A person is shot outside a South End motel. And the Legislature is considering a law to allow “special” license plates for the National Rifle Association!
The lame excuse is money for safety training. However, that training money should rightfully come from license fees for hunting and weapons. The NRA is not a charity; it is a powerful lobbying group.
Seeing automobile license plates with the NRA designation will degrade the image of our state. To imagine the incarcerated felons making license plates with the NRA image is another inane image. Kill Senate Bill 6123.
