OLYMPIA, Wash. – An initiative to prevent universal background checks on private gun sales looks likely to make it onto the ballot next year.

Supporters of Initiative 591 say they’ve delivered petitions complete with 340,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office.

Initiative 591 was created to oppose Initiative 594, which would require background checks for online and private sales of firearms.
