Some group up in Seattle called Washington CeaseFire has joined with that city’s mayor, Mike McGinn, to start a program where local businesses can become
magnets for violent criminals Gun Free Zones by signing a pledge and putting a nifty target decal in their windows.
Now, this is hardly the first place to try this idea, but I love the fact that even the moonbat geniuses behind this scheme seem to have a slight inkling about how this might turn out:
“We’re making a statement as a community” said Washington CeaseFire Board President Ralph Fascitelli. “We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence, but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence. Maybe our message will even make it to Olympia – we need better tools now to stop gun violence in our community.”
Well, I’m sure it’s a comfort to know that if you happen to die on the job during the course of an armed robbery or when somebody’s angry, unhinged ex shows up looking for blood, “maybe” the conversation will have changed or a message will make it somewhere or something. And, hey, “tools” will have been used. Metaphorical tools, which are the best kind.
