Washington: Hearing to be Held on Monday, December 15 Regarding Seattle Mayor’s Illegal Anti-Gun Tirade!

Friday, December 12, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

As we have reported, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, a member of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun gang, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, is taking a misguided approach to curbing crime in his city by violating state law.  A public hearing will be held on Monday, December 15 to discuss the issue.  The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Bertha Knight Landes Room in the Seattle City Hall located at 600 4th Avenue in Seattle

Mayor Nickels is seeking the prohibition of firearms at Seattle Center, parks, community centers, and city-owned buildings.  This ban, which includes Right-to-Carry permit holders, does not require review by the City Council and directs that a plan be drawn-up in 30 days to establish the prohibition.

Mayor Nickels’ crusade is a clear violation of Washington State’s preemption statutes that dictate that only the State Legislature can enact laws pertaining to firearms.  Because of preemption, the city has no arrest power or authority to fine people under Mayor Nickel’s outlandish order.  The city may, however, attempt to charge any violators with trespassing. 

This alert is being sent statewide because of potential implications that could take place in Olympia.  Mayor Nickels is planning on taking his anti-freedom agenda to the Capitol to reverse Washington State’s statewide preemption statutes in January.

It is important that NRA members, Right-to-Carry permit holders, firearm owners, and anyone interested in the rule of law to respectfully make their voice heard against this Draconian attack on our Second Amendment freedoms. 

Please attend Monday’s hearing to voice and show your opposition to this illegal and unwarranted attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.  If you are unable to attend, please contact Mayor Nickels to respectfully voice your opposition.  The Mayor can be reached by phone at (206) 684-4000 or via email by clicking here
