Interesting times in WA state. A twenty year old mom can't buy a semi auto 22 rifle (or a handgun), or, if she has pot, she can be arrested for a felony and lose her kids too. However if that same mom is 21, she is good to go with both. If she is 17, then no felony on the pot and the police will ignore her using. Shouldn't the police resign if they won't enforce the (state) pot laws?
The pot laws are all about the Benjamins. The gun laws all about control.
Of course the Sheriffs risk little and are playing politics. However it does show the public that not all LEO's are for gun confiscation. I'll bet some of those Sheriffs will be running for higher office next. They may get my vote since the wet side of the state is going off the deep end lately and infecting the thinking of the urbanites in the West. Stepping over human waste and used needles has come to Spokane's downtown (and even found needles in my backyard that someone tossed over the fence) and the local city council president wants to tax bullets and guns, and let homeless people camp at City Hall, just like Seattle.
I think we need an Electoral College for the counties.
