Attorney General Bob Ferguson today announced a consumer protection lawsuit against Federal Way Discount Guns and its owner, Mohammed Reza Baghai, for illegally selling high-capacity magazines despite the ban on such products in our state. 

Ferguson is also seeking an injunction that would block the store from selling high-capacity magazines. The defendants face a maximum penalty of $7,500 every time the store offered a high-capacity magazine for sale and $7,500 every time it illegally sold a high-capacity magazine.

The lawsuit follows a statewide sweep of gun dealers conducted by investigators in Ferguson’s office. 

Attorney General investigators visited 25 firearms retailers across Washington to confirm that the retailers were complying with the new law. by attempting to purchase the unlawful magazines. Only two retailers did not comply, including Federal Way Discount Guns. The investigation into the other retailer is ongoing.

It's curious that the AG's office chose to prioritize this enforcement effort over all the other crime going on in our state. If a Washingtonian wants one of these newly prohibited magazines, all he has to do is to drive to Idaho and buy as many as he can afford. There's no waiting period, no ID requirement, and if he pays cash the transaction is untraceable.
