Glad to see the city council addressing such important issues. I wonder what real problems could get solved if they weren't creating issues to fix?

And people looking for unlicensed dealers will find them regardless. This is simply a money making scheme dressed up as responsible legislation supported by vanity activists and the occasional grieving parent. If you sell a gun that is used the the commission of a crime you will most likely be charged,civilly and criminally in most cases. Can't ever recall hearing about someone getting on the stand and saying " well I thought I could" and being exonerated.

If you sell a gun unknowingly to a felon you still get charged. Fact.

And if you complete a sale to some guy on the street without asking if he's a felon or his name you can be prosecuted. Are you trying to tell me that if I just sell my guns to some dude without asking a few questions and plead ignorance at trial you are wrong. Why is it that people that have never sold a gun most likely seem to be keyboard lawyers more often than not?

I'm more concerned about the panic about ebola than the disease itself. Don't spoon with strangers and you'll be fine.

@41 you do realize that if you are found to have given or committed a straw purchase for a felon or crazy person you already can be charged with a crime and prosecuted right? Maybe Richard Martinez should argue for everywhere to be a gun free zone because that works so well. I-594 wouldn't have stopped Eliot Rodger from getting his guns but maybe his dad( You know the guy Richard was hugging) cutting off his credit cards would.

@32 this is most likely not going to pass, lots of people in areas outside of Seattle are voting no and to say that certain elements in law enforcement are not going to use this to settle personal affairs is silly. You obviously do not understand how laws are enforced, the officers personal feelings are worthless if he is truly impartial to enforcement of the law.

I love how some are claiming that the "police won't enforce the law that way" you are the same people that always crow about not being able to trust the police to do the right thing if left to their discretion. This law is lacking clear wording on many issues and until that is changed it is going to be a tool to arrest good people for absurd things.

The largest law enforcement organization in Washington is very much opposed to this silly attempt at ending gun violence. Mr. Martinez is the definition of a person that is not thinking rationally and just wants to be upset at something over the death of his son. He was hugging the guy that enabled his sons death through providing funds to do so and ignoring every red flag that was put up. I am sorry for his loss but I will not listen to his illogical wailing.

@21 please explain how disrespect for someone else's property is going to bring about justice for the people's names that are on the cups? I'm willing to bet everyone here agrees that police brutality is a problem but causing a janitorial crew more work in a vain attempt to capitalize on a major social movement just because you think you have the right to is absurd.
