    Well....DUH!


    Police reports show how Evergreen State gun control backers get it wrong

    Following the assassination of Julius Caesar on this date in 44 B.C., the people of Rome didn’t ban knives, but today’s anti-gunners push legislation like Initiative 594, requiring so-called “universal background checks,” arguing that it will prevent criminals and crazy people from getting guns, when a report yesterday on KOMO underscored why that’s wishful thinking at best.

    Good article. I was hoping Stonel Guns was a gun shop or manufacturer though. :D

    That would only work if they only sold components or 80% items.

    They should make it a law that when you steal a gun, you need to get a background check before you remove it from the victims premises...

    Then they'll just push for mandatory lock up/safe laws..

    I would if I had kids, and I lock things up when I leave for the day.. But if a criminal wants something, they'll almost always find a way to get it.

    Unfortunately, I'm sure it'll be coming to us via a house or senate bill very soon. :mad:

    Great article Dave and the comments from the I-594 “designated responder” are very interesting.

    I guess restricting every law abiding citizen with no appreciable positive outcome is all I-594 was trying to accomplish since even it’s most strident supporters agree it wasn’t intended to stop criminals.

    Perhaps it’s time we require that all new laws must pass the Hippocratic Oath: First, do no harm.

    I haven't seen any "strident supporter" of I-594 agree that it wasn't intended to stop criminals. I've heard their rhetoric about keeping guns out of the wrong hands.
    It's all bushwa, of course, but it lets them dance around the fact that they've bought an election that passed an unenforceable, and perhaps unconstitutional piece of legislation.
