USA: Washington gun-lovers protest upcoming gun-control law discussion

United States, Olympia
January 12, 2018 at 21:24 GMT -00:00 · Published

Pro-gun activists rallied on the steps of the Washington State Capitol building in Olympia, Washington, on Friday, protesting against proposed gun-control laws.

"It's very important for them to hear these voters on the steps and why these gun control bills should not be part of this year's 2018 legislation in the legislative session," said one protester.

US lawmakers are set to discuss the proposed laws in a bid to tighten gun-control, and ban bump stocks, which received attention after being used by the Las Vegas attacker in October 2017.

Activistas en favor de las armas se congregaron frente al Capitolio de Washington el viernes, en protesta contra las leyes de control de armas de fuego.

Especialmente se trata de la prohibición del uso de “bump-stocks”, artefactos que se instalan en los rifles semi automáticos para disparar con mayor velocidad y lograr que estos lancen balas como los automáticos. Este tipo de mecanismo se usó por el atacante de Las Vegas. En octubre del año pasado al menos 50 personas murieron en el tiroteo que ejecutó el asesino durante un concierto.
