Utah-based group aims to make it easier to buy and sell guns in Washington.

Olympia, Washington – A Utah group is making it easier for residents of Washington State to buy and sell guns. The group behind UtahGunExchange.com, an online classifieds site for private firearm sales, has launched an identical site for Washington residents. According to the site’s founders, Nick Moyes and Kenny Barlow, the goal of the classified site is to bring the Washington gun community together to help protect their 2nd Amendment rights.

“WashingtonGunExchange.com is about building community,” co-founder Nick Moyes said. “We saw what happened when outlets in Utah that were friendly to the gun community bowed to political pressure and we want to preempt this from happening in another gun friendly state.” Moyes is referring to anti-gun former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg who has set his sites firmly on Washington State gun control efforts. Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” contributed $30,000 to a recent Washington gun control initiative.

“We wanted to provide a cooperative marketplace for Washington residents to find and offer firearms for sale.” Kenny Barlow said. “The more communication, coordination, and interaction the gun community has with each other, the harder it will be for adversaries to take away these rights.” In 2012, UtahGunExchange.com was launched within hours of the announcement that the local NBC affiliate had suspended private firearms sales through its classifieds service. UtahGunExchange.com received over 35 million page views in 2013.

Washington’s laws governing the private sales of firearms are identical to Utah. Washington residents can buy or sell firearms privately, as long as both the buyer and the seller are already legally allowed to own a firearm and both are residents of the State of Washington. However, the private sale of firearms across state lines requires that the firearm be transferred through a licensed dealer in the buyer’s state of residence.
