If you’re a convicted felon, you’re not expected to have one.

The reports that are following people who apparently didn’t get the memo.

Maybe unintentionally, the Seattle Police Department—an embattled agency with some really good rank-and-file officers I know personally—recently provided informative data on two arrests that essentially pop music the bubble of gun control fanatics who think “one more law” will re solve the criminal activity issue.

It’s a federal crime for convicted felons to possess firearms. Any notion that alleged “universal criminal background checks” are likely to avoid an individual theif from getting a firearm is seriously misguided.

Earlier in the day this thirty days, people of this department’s Gun Violence Reduction device spotted a 25-year-old man desired by U.S. Marshals. Him into custody, they found a stolen handgun when they took. They included this note on the Blotter: “The man is a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing firearms.”

Two days later on, Seattle officers discovered a 46-year-old guy “brandishing a handgun while travelling a parking lot, yelling at a few individuals.” That’s hardly the best way to avoid attention, in which he got plenty once the cops moved in. The man dropped the gun and ran in to a nearby business with police in hot pursuit.

“The suspect is a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing a firearm,” the Blotter noted.

Seattle hosts a billionaire-backed gun prohibition-lobbying group, plus many, if not many, regarding the state legislature’s anti-gunners. They should all be required to see the Police Blotter. (more…)
