How’s that gun control working in Washington state after stricter laws implemented?

At the end of May this year I did a blog post entitled, “How’s that gun control working in Washington State since new laws were passed?”

I outlined how presidential candidate demorat Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bunch of new gun control laws on May 7 claiming that they would “improve gun safety overall.”

The new laws included:

Statutory law prohibits firearms to persons under 21 years of age.

Police may temporarily seize guns from people a judge deems a threat to themselves or others.

In November 2018, voters approved I-1639 that includes increased background checks, firearm safety training, waiting periods before semiautomatic assault rifles may be purchased or delivered, and require certain secured firearm storage or trigger-locks, and criminalize certain firearm storage if it results in unauthorized use.

Of course these laws did NOTHING to stop criminals. As I noted in my post, “Seattle had more than one reported shooting a day somewhere in the city during the month of May; two of those incidents resulted in death.”

Guess the criminals missed the memo because gun violence continues in Washington state:

Deputies increase patrols in White Center after ‘insane number of bullets’ fired

Police: Man shot multiple times in Capitol Hill

Seattle police investigate shooting near Cal Anderson Park

Two injured, home hit by gunfire in separate weekend shootings in Bellevue

Five killed, 2 in custody in Washington state shootings

Road rage incident leads to shooting in Mill Creek

1 person hurt, 2 detained in midday shooting in downtown Seattle

One dead, man in custody in Redmond shooting
