Just today there have been a number of both e-filed and paper Form 1s for manufacturing an SBR rejected in WA citing “RCW 9.91.190(2)” which is not even a valid RCW.
RCW 9.41.190(2) states the following:
(2) It is not unlawful for a person to possess, transport, acquire, or transfer a short-barreled rifle that is legally registered and possessed, transported, acquired, or transferred in accordance with federal law
People have been assuming that making has been covered under the “acquire” language as the ATF have approved numerous Form 1s until today, 5/27
Apparently that has changed
UPDATE: Across the forums above and Facebook groups I’m in, I have counted between 30-40 independent reports of Form 1 SBR Denials.
Anyone else who has had a denial please send me the control number(s) below
