The WSMA supports working with the Washington Chapter of the American College of Surgeons to enact safe and sane legislation relating to the purchase of firearms to include:

  1. Firearm education and safety certification prior to purchase;
  2. Licensure appropriate to the class of firearm desired for purchase; and
  3. Establishment of an appropriate waiting period between application for purchase and/or licensure and purchase of the firearm.
