    Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels has directed city agencies to ban firearms -- even permitted weapons -- from parks and other city property, he announced Monday.

    Where does the mayor think he gets the authority for such a broad abridgment of otherwise legal gun-toting?

    And how will he enforce it?

    Below we've posted Nickels' answers to these and other questions -- and most of what Nickels and others had to say -- during his Monday morning press conference. (If you want to watch the video, it will probably be posted soon to this Seattle Channel website.)

    This is what I was wondering:

    Reporter: Would there be a penalty for violators?
    Nickels: "This is not a law, this is a rule. So we would have the ability to trespass people from those facilities if they violated this. But we would not be able to throw them in jail or fine them."
    So, trespass me, wtf do I care?

    I would love for that to happen to me...

    Why are you tresspassing me? Well... Because this no gun in parks policy... Well is that a legal policy that will be enforceable in court? Well... no... Okay than, how about you leave me alone so I can continue on my way?

    What a moron. He really thinks he can trespass people from city property for lawfully carrying a firearm?

    He is threatening charing those violating his "Ban" with Criminal Trespass.

    Criminal Trespass is one of the things that can cause one to permanently lose ones CPL.

    That video proves that his intent is more than an EO issued to City employee's. If enacted, I can't see how that would not be proof of a deprivation of civil rights.

    Notice the key-phrases, "moral obligation", "could only imagine if there were guns", etc. The positions are based onfear and a total lack of perspective!!

    I know I amnot going to get much disagreement here, but it just sucks that this ass cango infront of a TV camera andlegitimizethis direction.

    I was fortunate enough to shake her hand when I went down to testify in front of the Higher Education Committee that was hearing the bill linked above. It gives me hope to know that there are legislators in our state's Capitol that actually care about our rights.
