    Apparently the meeting went very well. Everyone behaved himself and the gun rights advocates outnumbered the socialists by about 3 to 1. Shockingly, Mayor Nickels (who started the ball rolling on this attempt at an illegal ban) didn't show up. Here's some commentary (opencarry.org) from folks who attended the meeting...

    Wow Doc, you must be right about your firewall. It's still there for me.

    Did anyone catch the opening line of the story? It's "safety vs. the second amendment"...

    In several of the comments KOMO has been taking a ration of poop for that bit of yellow journalism.

    Do you know which department heads (or other City officials) were there?
