    Seattle group artical hits the media

    Stay Together, Carry a Gun, Protect the Hill, page 1 - News - Seattle Weekly the only downside is they make it look like we are an armed patrol when we are not it is just some of us carry and did not mention the 2nd amendment group i started here in Seattle to much but here it is
    "The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

  3. Excellent article; you came across as levelheaded and community-minded in a publication that has painted gun owners in an unflattering light in the past.

    Can't make the 20 Sept. meeting, but keep up the great work !

    Did try to make you look like a version of the guardian Angels or whatever that wacko anti gun vigilante group is. The bury their head responses of some was hilarious.

    But Roberta Carlson isn't buying it. "I don't think people going to my [yoga] class have guns," she tells Seattle Weekly. "I'm not in favor of a neighborhood vigilante group. The thought of people walking around with guns, no matter what their intentions are, is a little scary."

    For its part, the Seattle Police Department is mum on the subject. "We are here to uphold the law," says Officer Jeff Kappel, a department spokesperson. "As long as people are exercising their rights lawfully, we have no issue or opinion."

    Shelly Bates, a Beacon Hill resident and mother of three, feels that if she went on one of the patrols, she's not sure she'd ask who's carrying a gun—in large part because she doesn't want to know.

    "I'm not sure I'd be ready to deal with [people carrying guns on the walk]," she says, adding that while she realizes she probably should ask the parents of her kids' playdates if they have guns at home, she doesn't do that either. "They don't appear like gun owners to me, but you ask a question like that and people you never thought might be. It could change your whole perspective of what you think of them. I'm not sure I could deal with that information.
    At least Shelly Bates acknowledges her irrational bias and did not want it to color her view of folks. Still not a good reason to play ostrich IMO

    Those who would, deny, require permit, qualification, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    I'd like to know who has guns so if the SHTF I'll know who's got my back.
