    In the land of make believe.
    I was waiting for some crazy anti to speak up and attack the "gunshow loophole" after the slayings in Seattle. Just was not sure when. And now I see them comparing the Columbine Massacre to the Seattle Slayings. I am willing to bet that the anti's start really making some noise during the next election and the next governor election.

    Just make sure they do not really screw things up as I am hoping to move there in September. I want to be able to go buy my guns without a lot of hassle unlike here in the crime capital of the world where we can easily illustrate how wonderful gun control is.

    Of course there are no statistics or specific instances to back up what they are saying. I seem to recall reading the comment about the "gun show loophole" in other articles and IIRC, it was pretty much verbatim.

    These two comments are pretty much BS. As a member of the Washington Arms Collectors (they run the two largest shows in the state), I had to provide information for a background check as a condition of membership. The only way that you can buy or sell a gun at at WAC show is to be a member of WAC. The shows have a number of vendors that are also brick and mortar gun shops and they even require you to fill out the 4473 and they call in the usual background check.

    What the two ex-guv's don't say in their (supposed) comments, is that it is not against the law in WA for two private parties to buy or sell a gun.

    There was no relationship between these two incidents at all. Both were certainly tradgies but the Seattle shooting was at a private party attended by invitees from a rave. While I am deeply saddened that two young girs died, what I do not understand is why their parents let them stay out all night (they did have permission) at an event where adults were present and these after hours parties typically had drugs and alcohol freely available. The 14 year old even had a 19 year old boyfriend.

    As far as the shooter possessing guns, he may have had an AR clone but the other rifles were back at his apartment that he shared with another person and they were hunting rifles (he and his brother were hunters). And the guvs never mentioned the shotgun although the Seattle PD did not display the shotgun used in the killings but a "similar" one. Of course we have to assume it was similar and not something that would add fuel to the antigun fires because the Chief wanted it that way.

    The whole artice was pretty much a laugher but the one thing I did find interesting was that the article was buried on the next to last page of one of the last sections in the paper for that day. It was not anywhere near the front page or even in the first section. I will give the TNT credit for not making it a prominent article. The Tacoma News Tribune is nowhere near the liberal democrat-sucking dog of a paper like the Seattle Post Intellegencer or the Seattle Times.

    Let's not forget our third stooge; ex-Gov. Gary Locke. The Seattle Times ran a similar story last week with all three as authors.

    Bellevue's CCRKBA ran a nice counter-article.

    We have good gun laws here in Oklahoma - very few! The laws are clear here -- if you are threatened in your own home you may shoot or use force. Crime has gone down. Nobody is breaking into houses in my neighborhood. Even the women are packin.

    That one guy was governor during the 1950s.

    Why didn't he close the SO CALLED gun show 'loophole' then?
