Last week, Seattle’s far-left socialist Mayor Jenny Durkan, signed the city’s latest gun control ordinance requiring the safe storage of all firearms and then placing penalties for violations of the ordinance.

The problem is that 35-years-ago, the state of Washington passed a law placing full control of gun laws and ordinances on the state legislature and forbidding any county or city government from passing any gun laws that go beyond state law and that is exactly what Seattle did and they did so knowing they were in violation of state law.

Gun rights groups including the NRA and the Second Amendment Foundation have joined together to file a lawsuit challenging Seattle’s new gun control ordinance.

(Townhall) – The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), in conjunction with the National Rifle Association (NRA), on Friday filed a lawsuit against the City of Seattle, Mayor Jenny Durkan, Seattle Police Department and Police Chief Carmen Best over the city’s new “safe storage” requirement.

Under the ordinance that Durkan signed into law earlier this month, firearms owners would be charged a $500 fine if a gun isn’t stored in a safe, up to $1,000 if a minor, “at-risk person” or unauthorized user accesses the firearm and up to $10,000 if someone uses the gun to hurt someone or commit a crime.

According to the lawsuit filed by SAF and the NRA, the ordinance is unenforceable because it violates Washington State’s 35-year preemption law…

Seattle’s city council and mayor are only following the lead of Barack Obama who chose what laws to enforce and what laws to ignore, therefore, their illegal action is no surprise. Additionally, they are using the latest ordinance to challenge the legality of the state law and knowing on liberal the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, who has jurisdiction over Washington, it’s possible this challenge of state law and challenge of the ordinance could eventually make it all the way to the US Supreme Court.
