    Seattle to pay SAF $38,000 in gun buyback records dispute


    :thumbup:


    Anti-gun Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn leaves office soon, and yesterday his administration agreed yesterday to pay the Second Amendment Foundation $38,000 to settle a lawsuit filed earlier this year over the city’s failure to release all public records relating to January’s gun buyback fiasco, as detailed in today’s Seattle Times.

    They need to pay and disclose the records. Trouble is, it is the tax payers money, not the Mayor's!! He should have been litigated against personally!!

    One of my biggest problems with government is the complete and total lack of accountability, at all levels.

    I love the fact that the money will go to support more gun rights.

    Like when I was standing in line to turn in non-functioning guns worth virtually nothing that we got from some lady for $10 for gift cards to Fred Meyers. They asked what I was going to buy with the gift cards, and I told them "more ammo!"

    I turned in a working pistol (well they thought it was a working pistol hey it went click) and turned around and used the money on a very nice Ruger MKIII 22-45rp. Thank you very much!

    Great! But now that McGinn is gone and Murray is in, we are going to go through this all again, because Murray is far more anti-gun than McGinn, and he's also far more connected. He makes McGinn look like a bumbling idiot.

    I594 is just the start of the shenanigans for WA and Seattle in particular.

    Nobody made McGinn look like a bumbling idiot. he sort of accomplished that on his own.

    Of course there is a concern about Murray being the brighter bulb on that block, but I'm not so certain his "connections" will help him that much in Olympia, because this is an election year and gun control is campaign poison. Besides, the legislature will have the two initiatives they can diddle with, making it look like they're doing something.

    As for I-594, that's going to require all of us to dig in and fight back. And pass I-591 instead, putting the two measures into conflict.

    It's halftime in America.
