I wonder why he’s doing that???

Oh, as someone said, it's a race to market one's self as the most extreme progressivist prior to the mayoral election. This would be considered "normal" in Seattle but not in much of the rest of the state.

Does the Mayor have such a sign posted on his property? Right on the front yard where EVERYONE can see it. Lead by example, dude...

What effect will such a sign have on the likelihood of an armed robber targeting that store?

What effect will such a sign have on the likelihood of an anti-gun liberal shopping at that store?

What effect will such a sign have on the likelihood of a pro-gun conservative shopping at that store?

My guess is that those signs will have almost no positives in terms of deterring robbers or attracting liberal customers. My guess is that roughly 10% of shoppers would never enter such a store, whether or not they personally carry. I would love for every liberal store owner to follow the mayopr’s advice and try it.

Yes Sir, you’ve got it. Post a “no fags” sign and wait two minutes before the lavender fur starts flying.

This was on the news the other night. One of the more idiotic things our beloved mayor has done lately.

Now for the Mayor to truly show how committed he is to this policy, he should post a sign on his front yard this is a gun free house.

Kind of put up or shut up.

Then stand by for the fun. either way it will be interesting. If he doesn’t put up the sign: hypocrocy
If he does put up the sign and doesn’t surround his house with 24 hour police protection, then watch the action

I appreciate the mayor helping me decide where to spend my money when I visit the downtown. These nice, helpful signs let me know which establishments won’t be getting my business.

Honestly, how long are these businesses going to stay afloat if they chase away all their customers except for the gay Hempfest hippies that don’t spend money anyway?

..... letting customers crooks who have guns know they should shop elsewhere be able to rob the store owners and customers without resistance.

I think the effect is obvious. The robber will take one look at the sign and say: "Darn! What rotten luck - this store is a gun free zone!" He'll then turn around, continue on his way, and look for a store with no such sign.

(Yes, I'm being sarcastic.)

We will continue to do so, and I thank these businesses for standing up for the safety of their customers,” McGinn said."
So, does that mean the stores assume financial liability if there's a holdup and a customer gets injured because they didn't provide that safety?

Some years back, when CCW was first adopted in Texas, the liberal dingbats there promoted the same type of law. Gun owners went to those stores and handed them a small card that said something like: "Thank you for assuming all financial liablity for protecting me while shopping here. My attorney has been made aware of your policy, in the event I am hurt."

The signs came down prettly quickly.

I’m sure that the armed criminals are reading and studying this world-shaking philosophical approach to stopped crime.

Then they are laughing themselves so silly that they piss in their pants, before changing them and going out to rob the stores who are so wisely participating in this act of self-destruction.

The mayor is nuts. Seattle is a nuthouse, and the whole state is run by Democrat wackos who are hellbent on destroying it as a nice place to live. (Only the rich Democrats don’t have to worry too much about crime as they live outside the city, on the Northside, or on Bainbridge Island, while the stoner students at the Un. of Seattle couldn’t give a shit because their minds are mush).

Yes, the inmates are running the asylumn and Mayor McGinn is the leader of this pack of lunatics.

Mayor McGinn is trailing in a close race for his second term.

Washington state uses the “Top Two” single primary scheme, which guarantees that most elections in November will feature one Hard Left Democrat running against another Hard Left Democrat.

In this case, McGinn is running against an openly gay state legislator who has superior financial and political support.

Believe it or not, McGinn and his opponent will spend the next two months trying to convince low information voters that “the other guy” is a Conservative!

Thanks Sub-Driver.

Seriously, you must read this:

[snip] Ralph Fascitelli, the Washington CeaseFire board president, said in the press release. "We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence, but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence." [/snip]

Why stop with ‘gun free zone’?

Here’s a few more for Seattle businesses:

“No security system”

“We won’t fight back”

“Police free zone = we don’t call ‘em, they don’t come”

“Safe’s combination 12-15-8-35”
