What an idiot.
This is the same wacko who's dream is to turn Seattle into bicycle land. Even the most ardent libs think he is a bit off
Trotting out this old horse again? There is no such thing. Any licensed dealer that sells a firearm to anyone at a gun show must run the standard background check. That makes it absolutely no different than purchasing the firearm in a regular store. No different whatsoever. Even if any part of the transaction is initiated or conducted at the gun show, the background check must be run. So there is no "lets meet in the parking lot and I'll sell this to you." It just does not happen, period.
What can happen at a gun show - and what can happen anywhere - is a private sale. A private citizen (ie. not a licensed firearms dealer) can sell a firearm without a background check. That's a private transaction, period.
Boy they are just lining up like 747s for landing aren’t they?
The mayor should tighten controls on the half-caff-latte-brewed-with-fair-trade-coffee-beans-and-organic-soy-milk sipping occuturds. Ang G-D help Seattle if the Seahawks make it to the Super Bowl or the Sonics win the NBA championship.
Sorry Mr. Mayor. The guns didn’t do it. The 20 year old crazy did. It’s not rocket science mayor. Try using your gray matter sometime.
Of course!...everytime a tragedy like this occurs moron liberals think they can get restictive gun legislation passed!
How is he going to get rid of all the gangsta guns. Please tell me. When he can come up with an answer mayhap we have grounds for negotiation.
Yet killing babies in the womb is just fine by these guys. Encouraged even.
The worst form of hypocrites
The lawless are not going to follow your useless laws, Mr. mayor, and neither am I.
“A tragedy beyond words”
But he manages to try ... So, what does it have to do with calling for the abridgement of the natural rights of scores of millions of Americans?
That’s like a prosecutor saying to a jury, “Murderer is a horrible crime.”
What does that have to do with the guilt or innocence of the defendant?
Yet not one word about the 52 million babies who have had a hole drilled in their skull, their brain sucked out and their bodies burned.
Ban all guns in Seattle?
The next thing you know they will legalize marijuana and gay marriage.
Wait. They already did that.
Rather than take guns away from law abiding citizens, perhaps we should REQUIRE them to ALWAYS carry guns.
Forty years ago, perhaps half of these mass murderers would have been confined to a mental institution and would have been no threat to the public.
Another reactionary asshat.
I would recommend that Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn consider not running for reelection as mayor. McGinn should look at the real guns gunning for him and not guns that shooters like the gunman, Adam Lanza used that his mother purchased legally. McGinn’s vulnerability because of a long history of poor policy has nine candidates gunning for his position.
