    NRA sues Seattle over recently passed 'safe storage' gun law

    BELLEVUE, Wash. -- The Second Amendment Foundation and NRA have filed a lawsuit against the City of Seattle over the city's recently passed "safe storage" gun requirement, claiming it violates the state's preemption statute.

    The suit also names Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, the Seattle Police Department and Chief Carmen Best. Durkan reacted to the suit Friday, “While they go to court – kids go to the hospital. We can’t prevent every gun death or injury, we can take steps to help prevent tragedies. I am grateful that legal experts who share our commitment to reducing gun violence are standing with us and standing up for safer communities.”

    "We will prevail and will continue to push for more protection for our children," Durkan added.

    SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb expressed frustration that Seattle is once again trying to pass its own gun laws.

    “Seattle seems to think it should be treated differently than any other local government when it comes to firearm regulation,” Gottlieb said. "We should not have to repeatedly remind Seattle that they are still part of Washington state and must obey the law.”

    Joining SAF and the NRA in the lawsuit are two Seattle residents who both own guns.

    If 75% of firearms related fatalities in Seattle are suicides it seems to me that the uber liberal establishment in Seattle needs to focus on mental health.

    medicine/mouthwash/cleaning supplies must have child resistant packaging
    you must get a doctor's ok to get some medicine
    Child-Resistant Packaging

    ...it's only logical and sensical to require child resistant/etc for firearms --that are directly designed to kill
    ..the NY prisoners that escaped got their weapon from an unoccupied dwelling
    ...Shooting of Kathryn Steinle - Wikipedia
    etc etc
    many guns stolen from cars
    .....I had one accident in about 4 years....the guy I ran into said he had a pistol stolen from his car.....chances of that happening??

    The NRA takes it upon itself to defend the irresponsible gun owner, and the criminal that wants a gun. This is common sense. If somebody is murdered with your gun because you were not responsible enough with it, you should pay a penalty.

    Yes. All we have to do is find a quick cure for mental illness. Shouldn't be too hard.
