OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – Washington lawmakers are one-quarter of the way through their 60-day session in Olympia, and one issue they’re debating is gun control.

A hearing is scheduled tomorrow in the Senate Judiciary Committee on a bill that would ban military-style assault weapons that can fire rapidly and carry a lot of ammunition. It’s sponsored by Sen. Adam Kline of Seattle and faces stiff opposition in an election year.

The bill is supported by the gun control group Washington Ceasefire and opposed by the National Rifle Association and the Citizen’s Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
