    Oh, whoopee

    SEE BELOW


    Monday promises to be a busy news day, but don’t take a bus

    The King County Prosecutor’s office confirmed via e-mail to Examiner that the teen accused of gunning down a North Seattle man for his cellphone last month is scheduled for arraignment Monday in a case that neither Washington CeaseFire – which is running a new anti-gun bus billboard campaign – or the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR) has so far tried to exploit.

    What do I need to do here Dave? Do we need to try to get some pro-gun folks out to counter this?

    EXACTLY. If you are going to counter this, do it tastefully and low key or you will become the poster child for more gun control...and may even gin up support and sympathy for the anti-gun movement.

    Instead of bringing a thigh holster or an AR, bring a SIGN.... 'Protect Our Gun Rights'

    That is..IF someone were to mount a counter, and I'm not pushing anyone to do that.

    Oh geez... Y'all better brace yourselves for the "I gotta be me" and the "NOBODY tells me what to do", crowds to start sounding off over THOSE comments, fellas!

    We'll let it be then.

    Regarding the comments about what people do or do not carry. At most I will encourage someone to do or not do something however I will not tell them that they cannot exercise their rights. The notion that we might lose rights by exercising them is absurd. Either we have the right and can exercise it or we have already lost it. That said I think it would be prudent to encourage signs as suggested if we had decided to do something. At this time I think we will just aim at Apr. 5th. at the capital though.

    Hard to tell. Maybe 50 people or so. All the pro-gun people were at work.
