Here in Washington (the state), I 594 has now gone into effect. People haven’t even figured out all the ways it makes you a criminal yet (e.g. it may cover flare guns, percussive nail guns, etc, due to its definition of “firearm”). And yet here we are, full speed ahead down the slippery slope: Initiative 594 group calls for additional gun measures [via komonews.com]. The antis now want . . .
a safe storage law, a gun violence protection order (no due process) and state gun range inspections (for lead content). Singing the same old song.
“These policies enshrine the belief that gun responsibility is part and parcel of gun ownership and completely consistent with our Second Amendment rights,” he said. “Responsible gun ownership and use, in fact, help protect Second Amendment rights.”
When asked if any of the nine people who made the presentation were gun owners, two, including Brown, said they were former gun owners but none currently owned guns.
The antis will never be satisfied until guns are banned, confiscated, and we are all defenseless, hapless victims depending on state protection. “We aren’t coming for your guns” they say. Not today, but here in Washington we’re on the highway to Hell with a bus full of wealthy elitists asking, “are we there yet?”
As they say, we can never rest.
