The bullies got their way on new gun laws

LaceyMarch 24, 2013 

Well, here we are again.

The bullies are not only in our schools, they are in the committee rooms of our Legislature.

Was HB 1588 a cure-all for gun violence in our state? No way.

But, was it a small step in closing a loophole in a less than comprehensive law? You bet.

The bullies went to work with all their big guns and struck fear in the hearts of those we elect to enact laws for our protection.

What has happened to the common good that we can allow the bullies to hold sway on our legislative processes?
