I don't own a gun and most likely never will, BUT I encourage all of you to contact Mayor Greg Nickels and tell him the Constitution is not 'optional.' The City owns a LOT of property, tourist areas, ferry docks, etc. Hey, at least if people are running around naked in the parks we can SEE their guns, right?

Seattle holding hearing on city gun ban plan

The city of Seattle is holding a public hearing on a proposed gun ban on city-owned property.

SEATTLE —

The city of Seattle is holding a public hearing on a proposed gun ban on city-owned property.

The Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms urged its supporters to attend Monday's hearing at 6:30 at City Hall.

Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels proposed the ban in response to a shooting last May during the Folklife Festival at Seattle Center.

Attorney General Rob McKenna issued a nonbinding opinion in October that cities lack the authority to ban guns because local laws would conflict with state regulations.

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says if Seattle is successful in banning guns on city property then other cities across Washington may do the same thing.
