Gunowners in the state of Washington may soon be able to breathe a heavy sigh of relief as the House of Representatives has just passed H.R. 5827. This legislation will allow gunowners in states which permit the federal exemptions (Washington but not Oregon) to exempt up to $3,000.00 worth of firearms. A comparable version is pending in the Senate now. Provided that both the Senate passes this legislation and the president ultimately signs it into law, gun toting Washington residents from Seattle to Vancouver will be able to file bankruptcy and not lose any part of their arsenals.
