I heard about this on the local AM radio news this evening. The cops aren’t happy about it and they are going to find a way to stop this.

The best gun show I have ever been to was in Washington state. The Washington Arms Collectors gun show. Of course this was in the 80’s. Gun shows have gone down hill since Clinton.

“destroy the guns and use them as rebar in local construction projects”

I’m not a civil engineer, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. I’m not going anywhere near these construction projects. That can’t be to code.

"Most people are here in the spirit of wanting to do something because of some of the tragedies that we’ve seen in our country and in our own city.”

Any gun that was brought to a gun-buyback program was likely already owned by someone who be the last person in the world to shoot someone. What good did that do? Trading an $800 dollar hunting rifle for a $100 dollar gift certificate is good for who?

The liberals in Seattle are livid that their sanctimonious gun buy back event turned into a gun show event. You should have heard them howl on the news radio programs. They are vowing to have Olympia make new laws preventing private party gun sales. We will see if they can pass such a law and have it meet the strict requirements of Washington State's Constitution.

Currently, there is no paperwork or registration requirement under WA State law regarding sale of firearms between private parties. RCW 9.41.080, does make it a felony to deliver a firearm to someone you have “reasonable cause” to believe is ineligible to possess it. They are using the Stinger type rocket launcher as the cause célèbre to use as an example of the danger such private sales posses for the safety of the community. Notice, they use the safety argument.

It is the honest citizen who would be most likely to be concerned for the safety of his fellow citizen. These are the same citizens who were bringing their weapons over to Seattle's gun buy back event. Some had weapons that were worth only a quarter of the money they would get from their $100 Amazon gift certificate. An extra $100 would help buy the wife a Kindle Paperwhite. These are the same citizens who would get CPR training just in case their fellow human needed emergency life's support. Seattle prides itself for having so many CPR certified people in the population. In my opinion, having a Concealed Carry and having a CPR training certification are functionally the same thing. In the case of having a gun available for an emergency situation, the use of a gun is for a life's saving situation. This is the use of a gun to save the life of an innocent person (which may be your own life) from the murderous criminal. This is the citizen dealing with an emergency situation until the police get there. Likewise, a person falls down from a heart attack. This is an emergency situation of a medical kind. Until the Emergency Medical Technicians arrive, you perform CPR. An medical attack is like an attack from a murderous criminal: both can bring an end to life. With one, you rescue with a gun. With the other you rescue with CPR. With both, we should encourage as many of such rescuers available as possible.

Participating in a gun buy back is like having yourself castrated because you believe that the neighbors have too many kids.
