Seattle’s ‘Safe Storage Law’ Stands for Now

Judge dismisses NRA lawsuit over Seattle’s new gun-storage law last Friday. In King County, Judge Barbara Linde dismissed the suit on technical grounds for now citing the law has yet to take effect.

In short the legislation mandates a firearm that is not directly controlled and carried must be secured. The NRA contended this violates a home owner’s 2A rights within the domain of their property. But the court cited the NRA’s own encouragement of safe and proper storage as part of the dismissal.

For now ‘Safe Storage’ mandates will be the law of the land in the Emerald City.
