The Washington State Legislature is hearing in committee this week, a bill that would ban the sale of dozens of popular firearms.

  At least 63 types of firearms would be prohibited from being sold.

According to information from The Center Square, the State House has passed House Bill (HB) 1240, and now it heads to the Senate where the Law and Justice Committee will consider it.

According to the language of the bill, and The Center Square, there is not a specific, hard list of which ones would be banned from sale, there is what's called a "floor" which lists at least some of the likely ones banned.
