Vote them out | Letter to the editor

A letter about state lawmakers and gun violence.

VOTE THEM OUT.

NRA over children?

State Sens. Mark Schoesler, Mike Padden, Phil Fortunato and Doug Ericksen voted against a bump-stock ban in Washington. SB 5299 passed 29-20 and now will get a hearing in the House.)

Excerpts from columnist Danny Westneat Seattle Times Jan. 26:

“Clearly this is the first gun seizure in the state of Washington,” Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, told the Senate.

“I can shoot five rounds a second with my Glock, and faster than that with my Sig. I can do that manually,” Sen. Phil Fortunato.

“Do you really think the crazy, psycho person who sits in a hotel room with a gun is gonna say, ‘Oh, it’s against the law in Washington state, so now I’m not going to do my crime?’ ” Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, regaled the Senate.

Gun violence will only change if WE VOTE THEM OUT.
