    Just called in and got to ask him......

    How does restricting my legal gun rights and the ability to protect my family make the city a safer when it does not remove the illegal guns from criminals?

    Then the phone went dead. I called back and found out that it is normal procedure and to listen for his response tomorrow.

    It seems like a one way conversation to me!

    Call in now!

    Video is still broken. I'll watch it later when the seattle channel gets their act together.

    I called and the lady said she'll have some one look into it...

    They probably didn't want this one going live and they are going to edit the video that gets posted online..... Wanna bet?

    It will never stick, it is unconstitutional and unpractical. His claim that city property is private is wrong, it is public.

    My computer said about 7:05. I just happened to be reading it at 7pm and decided to call. I thought out my question as is was ringing. I wish I was more prepared, but it turned out fine. Let's just see if I get edited out.

    They have the video up and the question about the illegal gun ban was asked at 4:40. Hydrochloride asked his at 14:00

    Oh man that dirty slime ball, quoting bad statistics and assuming public property is somehow owned by the city rather than the public. hydrochloride that was a good question you asked, and we all know the real answer to that but he flipped it around to make it sound as if being a victim is the best thing and that's what the city of Seattle wants.

    I gotta ask, why would you play into their hands like that. Asking questions in a format where the person answering the questions has time to think about how to answer is never going to get you a win. Basicly the person answering the question can lie and/or make up false stats and they are never rebutted and the sheepeople eat it up as gospel, after all it came from the Mayor.

    Now asking that same question at a town hall meetingwould get you somewhere.



    I am not attacking anyone for their efforts, this kinda stuff just frustrates the crap out of me, sorry
