Seattle Moves To Ban The Gun

by | 11th, June 2008

 KNOW that City of Seattle properties are about to become a Gun Free Zone. None of this or them:

Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels has signed an executive order that asks all departments to come up with a plan within 30 days to ban guns at all property owned by the city. Nickels signed the executive order after the recent shooting at the NW Folklife Festival at Seattle Center that wounded two people. “At many of our properties, including City Hall, you can bring a gun if you have a concealed weapons permit. Under this order, people with concealed weapons will be asked to leave or hand over their gun.” It’s a city rule that cannot trump state law. The only thing the city and police can do is kick someone with a gun out of a building or an event.

Says he: “Say what you want about us but at least we are polite.”
