OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — All firearms will be banned from the public galleries above the Washington Senate floor once the legislative session begins in January, under an order issued Monday by Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib.
Habib, a Democrat who serves as the presiding officer of the chamber, told The Associated Press and Northwest News Network that his goal is to create a safer environment for all working in the Senate.
Criminals and murderers being so circumspectly obedient about following laws, and all.
If there was any common sense in reporting (cf: when pigs fly unassisted), they’d note that only law-abiding citizens are banned from bringing guns, but the criminals will do whatever they like, by definition. Thus proving that the law won’t affect the legislators whatsoever.
