baldeagle 2 weeks, 3 days ago on Letter - Gun initiative goes too far with requirements

One thing not mentioned in the letter due to space constraints is the impossibility of enforcement for the portions covered by "transfers" as defined in I-594, but it is unlikely that Chicoli would care about that.

As for mandatory insurance, how has that worked for vehicle drivers? Again, only the law-abiding with do so which means the rest of us who actually work and pay taxes will end up footing the bill for the free-loaders as usual.

And, again, criminals will not care about the law and will continue to obtain firearms to use against those who--if this continues--will no longer be able to defend/protect their spouse and kids with a firearm. Check Chicago and see how well all those laws have worked at removing firearms from the criminals.

You may win this one, Chicoli, but will you hire armed bodyguards as other anti-gunners have done which doesn't say much for your belief in the cause. It just supports the NRA's contention that it takes a good guy with a gun to protect against/stop a bad guy with a gun. And good luck getting them to pay as you suggest.

Not anonymous,

In case you missed it above, the source was shared for I-937 and a statement given as to how to find multiple sources for the BPA paying windfarms for not producing power. Apparently you missed the articles in past editions of the UB on these topics. But it doesn't seem that is really what you are after.

The print article is where the editor informed me they do not print the URL for the reason stated. Nothing was stated regarding this anonymous posting area.

It seems the argument is what you may be after rather than a valid source.

downhillracer may not be aware that editors don't print URLs for sources since they do not have time to check all of them for accuracy.

Typing in "BPA pays windfarms" came up with several articles, though the story also appears in the UB so a search of their data base may work, as well.

Initiative 937 (text at: http://www.secstate.wa.gov/elections/initiatives/text/i937.pdf) removed water through existing dams as a renewable power source. It also set the mandatory increases in % of power which must be purchased by power companies through renewable sources, resulting in higher monthly consumer bills.

Sorry that you feel a statement of facts equal an anti-govt. rant.

Well stated. Don't forget about SB 5737 which would required a once-a-year visit to the home of anyone with a legally-owned "banned" gun to be sure it is safely stored. The sheriff has already stated he needs more money and manpower. How would he be able to carry out this mandated illegal search?

So true, but some people fail to realize that the government only has money to share if it receives it from taxpayers or goes further in debt!

Since some jail residents felt the TV was expendable there's not much point in replacing it. Apparently there was too much soap and shampoo available , too, so perhaps those items should be restricted.

It was heard that one area judge makes it a habit to ask defendants in his court on drug charges if they started on marijuana and the vast majority respond in the positive. But proponents continue to contend it is not a gateway drug. Really?
