Seattle truly is as liberal as it gets. I’ve lived in San Francisco and other great bastions of liberalism, and Seattle walks the walk truer than any other city I’ve lived in. Proud to call it home.
And hey, I happen to be a gun owning progressive who understands that expanding background checks does not violate my Constitutional rights. If you can’t pass a background check, you should not have a gun, it is that simple — and only people who probably shouldn’t have guns in the first place are worried about it.
Of course, almost 90% of the country, gun owners included, think expanded background checks make sense.
And speaking as a decent human being — I would gladly forfeit my guns if it meant saving even one life. Because unlike the “Pro Life” movement, every life really does matter to me. ;-)
