Class warfare in Wash. gun rights battle?

This bumper sticker says it all for gun owners in Washington State.

The Spokane Spokesman-Review is reporting that the overwhelming majority of financial support for Initiative 594, Washington state’s controversial 18-page gun control measure backed by the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), comes from just ten zip codes in and around the Seattle area.

Evergreen State gun owners are raising alarms about this, and calling on their friends and fellow gun owners to step up to the plate and support alternative Initiative 591. That’s the simple one-page measure that prohibits government gun confiscation without due process, and requires background checks done in Washington to comply with a uniform national standard.

Unlike I-594, this measure does not expand waiting periods or the state’s database on handguns. Nor does it track a loan of a firearm by one gun owner to another.

The Spokesman-Review’s veteran political reporter, Jim Camden, does a breakdown also on where the supporting funds for I-591 have come from. All of this happened in the wake of billionaire Paul Allen’s half-million-dollar donation last week, which has raised the stakes considerably for Evergreen State gun owners.

All of this is shaping up to be a textbook battle of class warfare.
