Remember in 2014 when the Legislature instituted universal background checks for all gun sales, to keep us safe? Remember in 2019 they said that if you’re under 21 you can’t legally buy a semi-automatic rifle, to keep us safe? Yet last year, Washington had more homicides than we’ve ever had. I wonder what our lawmakers, who clearly think they know what’s best for us but don’t really have a clue, will come up with next, to keep us safe?
