Pulling a loaded gun out anywhere it is improper to do so is UNACCEPTABLE. Gun show or mall, it is UNACCEPTABLE and ILLEGAL. Prosecute the lawbreakers, do not infringe the rights of the law abiding. Don’t you understand that those are illegal actions under WA law?! If a visitor at the show displays/draws a firearm “…in a manner…that warrants alarm for the safety of others” they have committed an illegal act. Again, this is an argument that Sara Brady herself would use. There is no problem sorting them out. You arrest and prosecute law breakers, you do NOT accomplish safety by restricting the civil rights of the law abiding. Fill in the blank: If you let everybody have a loaded gun, there is the chance of a murder If you let everybody have a loaded gun, there is the chance of a suicide If you let everybody have a loaded gun, there is the chance of domestic violence Additionally, these two statements contradict each other. Even the solution guarantees absolutely nothing. I will also point out, again, that this is a Sara Brady argument. Sure, zip-tie the unloaded guns. All others are to be assumed loaded. Any vendor or WAC member that sees a firearm in someone’s hand that is not tied will immediately detain that person until the police arrive to take him/her into custody. ZERO tolerance. The police like to say that they’re the only ones responsible enough to carry firearms; you seem to say the same about yourself. You’re ok, but other may not be. The same can be said of other drivers, other boaters, or other pilots. Liberty is a frightening thing, no? It’s always the other guy and you seem to be OK that the ‘other guy’ is out there armed. Guns and stupid do not peacefully coexist. I am STILL waiting to hear a reasoned argument that doesn’t use anti-gunner slogans and propaganda. I’m not trying to pin you to the wall with that demand either, but if your argument relies on those sorts of statements, then you are admitting that WAC is indeed in fellowship with the gun banners.
