    well wasting taxpayers money on something that should be legal is a joke.

    "It is unlawful to knowingly carry or shoot any spring gun,
    air gun, sling or slingshot, in, upon or onto any public place" wont affect firearms

    Are spring guns not considered a form of arms?

    Doesn't this comment pretty much screw everyplace? They are placing an ordinance on private shops & businesses?

    Ummmm.. Sidewalks? Streets?

    People, am I reading this WAY wrong, or is this ordinance going to blanket the ENTIRE City? Pretty much making Seattle a weapon free zone?

    Pretty much making Seattle a weapon free zone?

    Not a "weapon free zone"


    It is unlawful to knowingly carry or shoot any spring gun,
    air gun, sling or slingshot, in, upon or onto any public place.


    Just a "spring gun, air gun, sling, or slingshot free zone."

    I don't see any mention of the word "firearm".



    BTW: I thought a "spring gun" was a gun rigged to fire without being touched?

    How do you "knowingly carry" something that isn't carried?

    In light of presented information in the form of the actual law on the books. The so called weapons issue they are considering covers toy type guns. Hence to show up armed and in plain sight would be like taking real guns to a toy gun show. Or liken it to inviting a motorcycle gang to a formal wedding. I and we will save our efforts and artillery for bigger prey. No sense spending all your money at the circus.

    I agree with you mike very much. Showing up there armed might do our cause more harm than good. But maybe I'll go concealled carry and talk to the issue. The issue in turning the next generation into a bunch of pussies. Kids love Airsoft. With child obesity on the rise, and kids getting into drugs and alcohol at younger ages, the city council or our enimies at cease fire have put on the agenda taking away the freedom and responsibility that goes with gun ownership. This is just another tactic to brain wash the next generation into "guns are bad". How many of you out their saw in basic trainning the kids from these anti gun cities have to be restarted back to week 4 because they couldn't pick up rifleman skill. I also think this is a great opprotunity for law enforcement to step up and have positive interaction with kids about guns, gun safety and any concerns they might have about calls of man with a gun, come up with safety rules for air soft.I personally would love to see airsoft leagues like soccer leagues but that would be a serious blow to the Cease Fire agenda.
