    THIS JUST IN: Majority of sheriffs oppose I594

    Breaking: Majority of Washington sheriffs now oppose I-594, says NRA

    The campaign to defeat Initiative 594 just took on some important new muscle as a majority of Washington’s 39 county sheriffs have announced their opposition to the measure, according to a press release this morning from the National Rifle Association, one day after the Seattle P-I.com revealed another hefty contribution from billionaire Michael Bloomberg to the gun control effort.

    Makes sense. If you were to remove King county from WA, WA would be a republican state so I am not really surprised to hear that.

    I understand that it is just ten zip codes in that area.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    The same could be said about Snohomish county but sometimes it flip flops on issues. Our two largest cities, Everett and Marysville is as blue as it gets but the city I live, Snohomish, which is next to Everett votes red. I was talking about this last night and I am thinking that 594 is going to pass but the WA supreme court is going to not allow it based on state constitutional issues. 594 is very poorly written.

    That's 15 votes for the cause ! (I assume the others won't bother to vote)

    This is kind of a weird deal. The issue is the advertisement POGR is running that shows all the member organizations of the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs, to which the Everett police group belongs. They say their members haven't voted. But WACOPS members voted and that's what the ad is about, and the ad lists all the member groups.

    Meanwhile, there are now 26 county sheriffs opposed to I-594:

    Another newspaper turns against law enforcement on gun initiative

    The Kitsap Sun today joins a lineup of Washington State newspapers whose editorial boards have sided against a growing number of county sheriffs, thousands of law enforcement professionals and legions of law-abiding citizens by supporting Initiative 594, which another newspaper, the Longview Daily News, is recommending be rejected.
