Second, why was this man allowed to have a gun? Because the fucking NRA wanted he should. And then there's the open-carry law here they love SO much. There are now several people who are dead because one man had a temper tantrum, and the NRA made sure he'd be able to carry a gun with him anywhere when he did. Dead people, just because of politics, anger and cowardice.
I believe guns should be banned from all major metropolitan areas. Please explain to me why I see gun shops all along Aurora for any criminal or lunatic or just plain evil bastard to buy, but they ruin the view of Lake Washington from the bridge with that barrier for suicides. Please explain why I can't smoke in a park, but someone like this can carry a gun there. Please explain to me what makes guns not an obvious danger and somehow a specially protected thing.
And do not say 2nd amendment to me, unless you're in some little volunteer army, chickenfuck.
I used to go to Cafe Racer every Wednesday for a short time when I first got to Seattle, to Jim Woodring's Friends of the Nib group. Also hung out there a few other times. I liked the place and probably would have kept going there if the bus trip wasn't such a hassle at night. It's a wonderful place with a great staff and nice people. And this evil bastard destroyed it. He murdered people and then went up to one and stole his hat. Why? He was mad.
I once was locked down on a floor in an office building near Christmas 2006 in Chicago because some maniac was murdering people upstairs. I partly left Chicago because of even being near something like that. It's sickening to see that come to this little city that is no more prepared for this than the snow. Already Seattle has passed the whole murder total for last year.
Fuck you, NRA. Burn in hell, Ian Stawicki.
And my deepest condolences to the friends and family of the people he murdered for no fucking reason at all.
And just think, as of today hard liquor can be bought in regular stores for the first time. PERFECT TIMING.
If this city does not ban guns very soon, then it's true Seattle talks a good game but never actually takes action to improve anything. Chicago and New York are grown-up cities and they did. Are you as courageous about lead as tobacco and soft drinks, Seattle? Let us see.
