    I lived in Seattle and Loved it. I still visit there often.
    But the gun play is crazy there and every big city.
    Its not the guns. It’s the people mostly who illegally have them for drug deals and gang banging punks.
    I don’t believe in Marshall law. But we need a goverment who isn’t as crooked as the crooks.
