NRA to Obama: ‘Stop Fast and Furious immediately’

In a blistering letter to President Obama yesterday, the National Rifle Association – which has about 90,000 members in Washington state – not only declined to participate in a “new discussion” about guns proposed by the president’s Sunday Op-Ed piece in a Tucson newspaper, but instead suggested that he “bring an immediate stop” to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “Fast and Furious” gunrunning sting operation.


Obama's Gun Control Machinations

When President Obama waded into the gun control debate on Sunday, it seemed as though he had slept through much of the news coverage following the tragic shooting in Arizona.

Seattle's low murder rate frustrates anti-gunners

Seattle, according to a report in this morning’s Seattle Times – which trails by almost a month this column’s disclosure of the same information – enjoyed the lowest murder rate in more than 50 years during 2010.

Last year, according to the Seattle Police Department, there were only 19 homicides in the city, the lowest number since 1956, the year before Police Chief John Diaz was born.
