    I don't know if this is old news or not, but the hearing is on 12/15/08

    Cliffs: The city of Seattle (lead by mayor Greg Nickels) wants to ban all firearms (CCW included) from any city of Seattle owned property. Also, anyone that leases any property (except residential space) must not allow firearms.

    From what I've read, Nickels was going to try and do a Chicago type ban when Heller came out , thus killing that plan. So now instead he's saying that every piece of property that the city owns should be gun free the same way the owner of private property can ask you to not carry.
     
  2. This is in direct violation of state law. Someone will take this to court and Nickles will lose. This isn't one of those "maybe" things; the law is simple and crystal clear. Nickles doesn't have the authority.

    That said - I won't be the one to take it to court. I don't have lots of spare $$ laying around. How dumb:ugh:
