Yesterday, after reporting that the State House Democrats were warned by D leadership to tiptoe around Olympia rather than flex their muscle, I complained that they were missing the point of the mandate they just got, and they better use it … or else they’re going to lose it.
After that post, I learned that it’s worse than I thought. Two of the City’s top agenda items in Olympia this year are closing the state’s gun show loophole and passing an assault weapons ban (as many states have already done since the fed ban expired in 2004.) Unfortunately, Democratic House leadership told the city that pushing gun control isn’t going to fly.
