Seattle Mayor Encourages Businesses to Ban Guns

The Washington chapter of CeaseFire (now called Cure Violence for whatever reason), launched a new campaign yesterday, and it’s full of genius. The plan goes something like this: get businesses in Seattle to put up stickers on their windows and doors that proclaim the area a “gun free zone”. Yes, you read that correctly: stickers are gonna stop criminals.

No Guns Allowed Inside: Gun Free Zone

The no guns allowed stickers, seen below, apparently do carry some legal weight in Seattle by establishing a condition of entry. If you violate that condition, you may be arrested and charged with criminal trespass.

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn thinks this is a wonderful campaign, saying:

This is one of the things we can do. These businesses are saying, we don’t want guns in our establishments. If people leave their guns at home, don’t bring them into these business establishments, we hope we can make the city safer.

Where do I even start with such a ridiculous and contemptible idea…

First of all, did you notice that these crazy wing nut liberals were so quick to say that there’s “no proof” that arming citizens prevents crime, when there is a multitude of evidence to contrary, but they then proceeded to put on the great big clown shoes and make the preposterous claim that stickers will stop criminals? How do you even reason with people that willfully stupid?

Virtually every single major mass shooting in the past several decades has taken place in a “gun free zone”. There’s a pattern here people. Put aside your feelings for just a second, and use the brain that God gave you. Do criminals obey the law? No, by definition they do not. So who will your stickers be disarming, the good guys or the bad guys? 2 plus 2 still equals 4 right?

This is perhaps the most irritating thing for me when arguing with a liberal: more often than not, they attempt to put on an air of moral and intellectual superiority almost dripping with their smugness, all the while forgetting to actually activate their brain when forming arguments and opinions, and instead relying on “feelings”.

Protip: If you want someone to believe you are intelligent, don’t say stupid things like “gun free zone stickers will stop shootings”. End rant.

Folks in and around Seattle, perhaps this is a good thing. These stickers will tell you where you do NOT want to spend your money. You can read more here.

    Mental retardation is alive and well in Seattle.

    Oh wow, that sign is so scary, it will certainly scare off any potential criminal with a gun.

    Oh wait, it won’t, cause criminals don’t care about laws. Nor do spree killers.

    Make a sign that says “murder free zone” and call it a day. Then it doesn’t matter if you have a gun or not. The sin clearly says you cannot murder anyone with it. <- logical as the above sign.

    Someone should make up a sticker stating something to the effect of:

    “Nearly every mass shooting in modern history has occurred in a GUN FREE ZONE. This establishment is now a GUN FREE ZONE.

    Thank you for your patronage,
    The Management”

    And paste it right above their no guns inside sticker.

    At least the bad guys will know where to rob; there should be a drop in shootings. When there are not any guns, there will be not self-defense – makes simple logic to me. These people are not retarded, they are called victims

    I’m not really a vindictive person, but part of me really hopes that there is a surge in crime that correlates to the businesses that are stupid enough to put that sticker in their windows. Well, I take that back, I am reasonably certain that this will happen anyway. What I have to hope for is that someone will notice the pattern, document it, and then publish it through newspaper, radio, or television so that people will actually sit up and take notice. That, however, given the obvious bias of the mainstream media against firearms, is the long pole in the tent.

    If the “Gun Free Zone” stickers have at least one “scary” characteristic does that make it a “Tactical Gun Free Zone” sticker?

    Ignorance! Out of my zone, otherwise I would love to participate in this one.

    If a business has a no guns allowed sticker in the window, I will completely avoid that store, if I am able. If not, I will carry my concealed firearm anyway. Some may not like to hear that but too bad. I will not place myself in danger simply to give someone else the illusion of safety. I just won’t do it, period.

    Clearly this is political targeting of LAWFUL gun owners. Criminals laugh at signs. Psychos don’t care about signs. Being lectured by the head of washington ceasefire about how nervous you get when you have a gun drawn on you and how that is a reason that it is sill to have your own fun is too funny. Also him saying that without guns arguments will end in fisticuffs but not “violence.” last time I checked a fist fight is violence. I have a right not to be pummelled by a bully elected or not. that is why I carry and I will not spend my money in Seattle whenever possible.

    What Is he smoking ? As if the moneys aforted the city isn’t enough !

    Guess which establishments I’ll no longer be frequenting… It’s too bad. I enjoy Cafe Racer.

    The real irony in this is it’s the events at Cafe Race last year that reinspired my desire to carry everyday… I could have been there with my wife and child. Had I been, I’d like to think I could have saved myself and them and the the two other people that coward murdered layer that day. At least I would have had the option to try.

    McGinn has to go. He has been a disaster to this great city.

    Someone needs to make a printable business card that people can hand to store managers/owners saying ” I will never patronize this business as long as that sticker is in the window”. If they see more of those cards in the cash register than dollars they will rethink it.

      Here in Ohio we have a “No guns no money” card, it has a $ with the circle around the $ and a diagonal line through it
      Then on the bottom of the card it has the website to the Ohio CCW forum site in case the owner or manager wants to know what is going on
      Most of the tie these dumbass managers or owners are told by politicians or cops that they have to put the sign up
      Some of the people pull the signs down once they know it isn’t law that guns aren’t allowed and they do it because they were lied too
      Quite a few signs came down in my area from these cards
