Seattle passes safe storage law

So you are a victim of a crime at your home, police show up to take a report, they see a firearm not locked up, guess who is now getting charged. ... omeowners/
Seattle passed a law Monday requiring gun owners to store firearms unloaded and in a secured container.

CB119266 was passed unanimously by the Seattle City Council and makes it a civil infraction to keep firearms unlocked or loaded while not under control of the owner, imposing a fine of up to $500.

Violating the ordinance can result in even higher penalties, up to $1,000, if the firearm is accessible to a minor or an “at-risk” person. It can incur penalties of up to $10,000 if a minor, “at-risk” person or prohibited possessor obtains the firearm and uses it to harm oneself or another.

It's called legal confiscation of firearms from law abiding citizens by the liberal anti-gun pols. Plus they get to punish the bad citizen for his 2nd amendment privilege viewpoint. And line their coffers with money. The law-abiding citizen needs to move out of Seattle and let the criminals run city hall.
