Seattle Mayor
Jenny Durkan:
'Lock yer guns up boys
or we'll be comin' fer ya'

March 22, 2018

Chronicle staff

(SEATTLE, WA.) – Following what Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan calls “outreach and engagement with stakeholders including gun owners, safety advocates, community members, public health experts and others,” Durkan and city council member M. Lorena González announced Wednesday that they plan to propose legislation that would require gun owners to keep their heaters locked up in their homes and vehicles.

The legislation would also increase civil penalties and legal responsibility for anyone not reporting a lost or stolen firearm, which is required within 24 hours.

Regarding the issue of personal safety with guns when the deployment of a firearm is needed, Durkan did not address a primordial question about locked up firearms: how does a woman (or man) quickly get to and use a locked up firearm when a rapist with a large knife is coming through the bedroom window at 3 am with very bad intentions, when fractions of seconds mean living or dying?

What about during a home invasion robbery? Will the intruders be kind enough to allow the homeowner the time that frightened (to death) person needs to get to their locked box that contains the firearm, unlock the box, grab the weapon and deploy it? Or will perhaps the intruders shoot them dead as they are fidgeting with the lock on the gun box?

In 2015, an estimated 150,000 adults in King County reported keeping a firearm unlocked, according to the mayor's office.

It could be that many of those people, perhaps the majority have already thought through what a nightmare it would be, and the time it would take, to get to and deploy a locked up gun when an armed intruder, possibly a hopped up on dope and feeling no pain armed intruder already has the element of surprise on their side and is already engaged in the act of a crime against the homeowner.

Durkan says the legislation is not yet written. The plan is to work out the details over the coming months “in consultation with gun owners, safety advocates, public-health experts and others.”

Durkan says they expect a court challenge to that type of legislation. That might be the understatement of the year.
