The idea of a repeal of the Second Amendment is purely ridiculous, as we’ve outlined several times over the course of the last few weeks.  That’s why the liberal left is pushing for a piecemeal repeal.

The idea is fairly simple:  The left wants to make owning a gun an expensive hassle.  Then, gun ownership becomes so frustratingly difficult that Americans are dissuaded from the proposition entirely.

How are they achieving this?  In a myriad of ways, including a complex legal-geographical realm of anarchy where gun owners may be running afoul of the law just traveling town to town in America.

In the case of Seattle, democratic lawmakers are now looking to mandate certain accessories, adding to the cost of gun ownership as well as making prompt response times a thing of past…something that could truly be deadly.

On Wednesday, the Seattle City Council’s Gender Equity, Safe Communities, New Americans, and Education Committee approved the proposed gun control ordinance, setting it up for a vote by the full council. Introduced by Mayor Jenny Durkan in May, she argued that most gun owners in the city do not store their firearms safely.

“The level of gun violence in our communities is just not normal. While we can’t prevent every gun tragedy, we can act to save lives,” said Durkan, a Democrat. “We know that unsecured, unsafely stored guns help fuel this crisis of violence because they are more likely to cause tragic accidents, fall into the wrong hands, or be used in suicides. Requiring that gun owners safely store their guns can help make our communities safer places to live.”

Durkan’s ordinance, proposed with input from City Attorney Pete Holmes, Councilmember M. Lorena González and “safety advocates” from the Brady Campaign and Moms Demand Action, would establish a range of civil fines between $500 and $10,000 for those who leave unsecured firearms in areas where minors or those considered “at risk” may find them.

Effectively, the ordinance means that any gun owner in the City of Seattle will need to purchase and maintain a locking mechanism for their firearm.

Furthermore, there are serious concerns about how this added hardware will affect a gun owner’s reaction and response time in an emergency.  Every second counts in matters of deadly force, and the idea of fumbling with a gun lock in the middle of the night while my family sleeps is not my idea of a fun puzzle while being confronted by an intruder.
