Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced on Monday that two bills have been introduced to the state legislature that are “aimed at reducing deadly mass shootings.”

One bill would ban the sale of so-called “assault weapons” (a notoriously difficult term to define) and high-capacity magazines, and a second bill — and alternative to the first one in case it doesn’t pass — would enhance background checks and raise the minimum age needed to buy such weapons.
