Ultra-liberal city of Seattle is looking to take away the right for law abiding citizens to defend themselves with a firearm.
Despite what the main stream media tells you, firearms are an important part of self-defense and work great when used properly by a law-abiding citizen.
“Last week, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Councilmember M. Lorena González proposed legislation to the City Council to restrict the self-defense rights of Seattle residents. The proposed ordinance, if passed, would impose a one-size-fits-all method of storing firearms as well as punish victims of theft by requiring them to report a lost or stolen firearm within 24 hours or face increased fines.
Mayor Durkan’s proposed legislation aims to restrict the self-defense rights of Seattle residents by making it illegal for firearms to be kept in a private residence unless the firearms are kept in a “locked container” at all times when not being carried by the owner or other “lawfully authorized user”. Additionally, it would create a separate offense for an individual that has their firearms stolen or accessed by a minor or prohibited person, even if the firearms were stored in a locked container or obtained through illegal means such as burglary or theft.”
The Mayor is trying to justify this legislation as one that is protecting the city and making it a safer place.
In reality this legislation is meant to bully and install fear into those who wish to own a firearm. When anti-gunners can’t take away guns, directly, they will make law after law chipping away at gun owner rights until it’s impossible to own a firearm in the first place.
