    Seattle Gun Ban Smackdown Coming

    SAF/NRA case against Seattle gun ban moves forward

    If everything goes according to current schedule, attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association will be in court on Feb. 19, 2010 for what they hope will be a smack-down of Seattle’s gun ban in city parks and recreation facilities.

    The case will go before King County Superior Court Judge Greg Canova. Currently in the “discovery” phase, according to Seattle attorney Steve Fogg, who represents SAF, NRA, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Washington Arms Collectors and five local residents, the lawsuit is on schedule and he believes the case is solid.

    Listen to that cash register ring as the City of Seattle prepares to pay out. The aggrieved gun owners thank you for your contributions, Seattle.

    This lawsuit is actually not about the second amendment. This is about the state preemption law.

    The WA state law concerning firearms states that local municipalities cannot enact laws that are more restrictive than the state laws. State law has certain areas that prohibit carrying a weapon, even if you have a CPL. City parks are not one of the prohibited sites, but that's where Greg Nickel's ban is focused.

    Even our state attorney general told him it was out of line.
