Washington has a law that reserves any laws regulating guns to the state. In other words, if a city or county decides to put in a gun control ordinance, it is illegal under state law. However, this is not deterring the Mayor of Seattle, who is going ahead with a plan to forbid weapons in city parks, at sporting events and street fairs. We all know that the criminals will scrupulously obey this ban, and if it is passed, only the law-abiding, licensed gun carrying citizen will be affected. The city of Seatlle may as well put up signs letting the criminals know that they don't have to worry, all the citizens have been disarmed and are free for the pickin's. Mayor Greg Nickles intends to have a hearing in December to discuss this matter. Washington has over 239,000 people who have Concealed Pistol Licenses. That seems like a pretty large group of voters for a politician to upset. I pray that many of us Google the address or email address of the Mayor of Seattle and write to him, asking that your communication be entered in the December meetings' minutes as being opposed to this violation of the Second Amendment rights of 239,000 law-abiding citizens who will have their ability to defend themselves and others if this ban goes into effect. If the ban goes into effect, I pray at the next election, Nickles is tossed out on his ear.
