In November, voters in Washington must decide between two opposing initiatives dealing with gun control. I-594 would require background checks on nearly all gun sales in the state of Washington, closing the so-called "gun show loophole" that allows sales of handguns at trade shows. I-591 would prohibit any state agency from requiring background checks on gun sales unless and until there is a uniform national standard for background checks. Enrique Cerna moderates a debate with guests Don Pierce, former Bellingham Police Chief (pro I-594) and Phil Shave, Executive Director, Washington Arms Collectors (pro I-591).
Incumbent Democratic Congresswoman squares off against Republican challenger in a debate over critical local issues such as jobs and immigration, as well as pressing national issues including racial violence in Ferguson, Missouri and renewed U.
