Washington State - Thousands of
Gun Crimes go Unpunished

By Jenn Jacques. November 17th, 2016

The Evergreen State has an interesting way of doling out justice and holding citizens accountable for breaking the law: they're ignoring gun crimes.

This year alone, thousands of Washingtonians prohibited from owning firearms through court orders have been denied a gun purchase when their background check failed to clear. Although it is both a state and federal crime for a "prohibited person" to attempt to purchase a firearm, these criminals know their actions will go unpunished.

"I'm not going to beat around the bush. We're not going to do anything with them," said King County Sheriff John Urquhart.

Already this year, more than 3,2oo "prohibited people" have been denied a firearm purchase. But Sheriff Urquhart said even if a background check prevents one sale, it doesn't mean that person wouldn"t find another way to get their hands on a firearm.

"If he really wanted to do harm to that woman with that gun, he can go out and buy one on the street like that," the sheriff said as he snapped his fingers. ......

So, all these guns laws on the books seemingly here do not count for much - and yet antis will as always ignore existing laws and be after creating even more. As many gun owners will know and often remind others - with multiple thousands of gun laws on the books, do we really need any more!? If these existing laws are going to matter at all they need enforced, but here we read about rejected background checks made for criminals, with no apparent follow up or prosecution. "We're not going to do anything with them," said King County Sheriff John Urquhart. How reassuring is that for lawful gun owners (and even also the bleating antis), as even more 'gun control' is planned.
