    By my calculations, that's $2.50 a box, or $50.00 a case!

    Ain't nobody got time for that.

    I don't want to sound pessimistic but, honestly, how far will $30K go toward preventing gun violence?

    They want the money, but they want the guns and the freedom for citizens to freely acquire them gone worse.

    They will be, and already are, attacking on all fronts. Shut down all the LGS, nowhere to buy firearms and ammunition locally.

    For all the people that say, "oh well, I get all my stuff online," don't think for a hot second that isn't on the their radar as well.

    The statist lamenting about the woefully under regulated "internet loophole" for guns and ammo and the legislation needed to fix it is coming, count on it.

    This is why we need to keep President Trump in office, for the SCOTUS votes.

    Do you hear me, never-Trumpers?????

    I SAID, DO YOU HEAR ME>?!?!

    Hmm, sounds like something the Democrats in the 1800s would have done, for racist reasons. Guess they haven't changed all that much.

    All of Washington is a leftist cesspool, both the state and the city. If people want to keep their 2A rights, and with that the nation itself, they better damn well get out and vote out the people actively working to take it all away and leave everyone else to pay the taxes and shut up.

    The fact is, there are close to 30 million illegals here now with millions more planned each year. It may already be too late to do anything about it.

    You are correct. It’s really about getting gun shops out of city limits. Sad.
    More cities to do this in the coming years in western WA.
    Next will be WA banning all internet ammo sales delivered to ones door.

    It is what it is on the east and west coasts. I would think people would get tired of elected officials wasting money and restricting liberty, I would be wrong

    About as far as $30M, since money isn't the solution to the issue.

    You'll get no argument from me. I was low-balling the number a bit.

    Eventually they'll implement it across the entire state.
