    We're in trouble now: WA gets low grade from Brady Campaign

    WA earns low gun law score from Brady Campaign

    The Evergreen State is hardly a fit place to live due to its apparently weak gun laws, which – along with neighboring Oregon – earned only a paltry 15 points out of a possible 100-point perfect score, according to the Brady Campaign’s 2011 State Scorecard rankings…

    Let's look at Seattle vs. Baltimore, MD. Population of each city is roughly equivalent 620k in Seattle and 640k in Baltimore yet the murder rate for Baltimore is 34.8 and Seattle is 3.1 per 100k people. The Brady bunch ignores the truth, they are liars and they don't drink Starbucks!

    Would like to say good job to the worthless Gov., but I must assume she had nothing to do with making WA evil in the eyes of lunatics.

    That's not a low score!

    Remember folks, we're scoring this thing like golf.

    it's our state constitution, and to a lesser extent our state preemption law, as well as our state supreme court

    no governor in WA has much, if any authority to change the gun status quo here. which is damn good, btw

    i think in WA, even rabidly anti-gun dems, don't campaign on the issue at all at the governor level. it can ONLY hurt them. in cities like seattle, mayor candidates, council candidates do campaign on antigun campaigns, but they have ZERO power to change anything.

    seattle's mayor TRIED a blatantly unconstitutional executive order ot ban guns from city parks. which was struck down after the city wasted money implementing it

    I think a scatter plot of the Brady bunches scores against murder rates would be revealing.

    When it comes to a "Brady Score" lets try for the "Worst".

    CA is the best and look what it got them. Over twice the violent crime RATE based on some recent stat's.

    Why does everyone keep trying the same thing? "Hey, crime is up! Let's try stricter gun control laws!"
    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I like the "Crime Control" that a couple of homeowners in Snohomish County have adopted. "Break in my house and you'll leave in the company of the Coroner". At least two "repeat offenders" have been eliminated from the system lately. Who knows how many more.
