Letter: Navy would allow toxins to remain in water wells

Editor,

The legislators in Olympia are on a rampage right now loading up the docket with all the stupid, unenforceable, mostly unconstitutional and ineffective bills they can invent over “gun control.”

Or, more to the point, laying groundwork for eliminating guns altogether. At my last count, there are five bills in the House, seven in the Senate.

There is one bright spot on the horizon. Sen. Phil Fortunado, R-Auburn, has introduced a bill to require any legislator wanting to create a gun bill to take a course on guns from a qualified instructor.

It seems only fair if they are going to write laws, they should have to take the same training they require for potential or existing gun owners.

If it is fair for gun owners, it should be fair for lawmakers. As far as I am concerned, the legislature is far more dangerous than any gun, especially when ignorance, stupidity or ideology — no handicaps in politics — is in play.
