To Whom It May Concern

| | Comments (0)

Rep. Matt Shea (R-4) sent out an alert today containing the text of the letter below. In the letter, the Washington State Patrol is making blanket requests to gun dealers "across the state" for all AR-15 sales -- including all names, addresses, and phone numbers of purchasers -- for the past year.

Certainly, there is no obligation to comply with such a letter, and any dealer who did so would likely not have happy customers if they found out. But, as Shea wrote, "this apparent overreach of the Washington State Patrol" is troubling.

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to certify that Detective Juli Gundermann, #1113, is a commissioned officer with the Washington State Patrol (WSP), currently assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division.

Detective Gundermann is currently investigating a missing/stolen AR-15. In order to conduct a thorough investigation, Detective Gundernann is requesting information.

Please provide the following information:

  • Any and all documents/lists of sales of any AR-15 from July 1, 2010 to present.
  • Any and all documents/lists of sales of any AR-15 lower receiver from July 1, 2010 to present.
  • Any and all documents/lists of sales of any AR-15 your company purchased from a private party.
  • Any and all names, date of births, addresses, phone numbers, date of transaction and serial number from the purchaser.
