WA Sending Gun Message To Juveniles

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington lawmakers are exploring a proposal designed to give juveniles a stern message about the consequences of using firearms. A committee in the state House held a hearing yesterday on a bill that would send more youths to a rehabilitation program. King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg said current law leaves the impression that the state tolerates juvenile possession of firearms. The ACLU of Washington is opposing the bill, saying the effort could actually start the process of cycling people in and out of prison for life. The bill would cost between about $1 million to $3 million per year.
