Gun initiative goes too far | Letters

  • Oct 30, 2014 at 5:03PM

Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.

  • Oct 28, 2014 at 4:11PM

Two statewide gun measures will be decided in the Nov. 4 election, Initiative 591 and 594. Supporters of the conflicting initiatives claim they are about gun rights and public safety, respectively, but neither issue is as simple as it sounds. Initiative 591, supported by Protect Our Gun Rights (wagunrights.org), prohibits government agencies, including police, from confiscating citizens’ handguns and long guns, without due process, and does not allow the state to implement a background check policy of its own, but to adhere to the federal standard only. The federal standard calls for background checks on all gun sales made at federally licensed retailers.
