More 'News' Pushing for Gun Control

Melissa Santos of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer laments “Despite shootings, gun control unlikely.” While the piece is more balanced than most, it's still a hit job on the rights of gun owners. One usually expects Seattle's paper to print Washington Ceasefire releases nearly verbatim and call for draconian restrictions.

I doubt this plea will be heard, however. Despite a Democratic majority in Washington politics, my state legislators are aware that there are very few gun crimes and quite a few gun owners in the state. It doesn't take much for their to be a backlash against Democrats over wedge issues such as gun ownership.

The obvious ridiculousness of these articles is simple to demonstrate:

Despite stabbings, knife control unlikely.
Despite drownings, pool ownership still permissible.
Despite auto accidents, women still allowed to drive (sorry, kidding!).
