What part of "shall not be infringed" does the police chief not understand?  What if my skateboard shoots bullets?

SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED

"I can't go into all the specific details about what we knew leading up to it, but some of that information came from that group themselves," Mylett said.

He declined to name the specific group.


Cops have become terrible liars because they don't have to be believable in court anymore. The judge will make sure their testimony can't be challenged.

Banning molotov cocktails and fireworks because of a group known for molotov cocktails and fireworks sounds like a smart move to me.

I know Farkers like to defend bad behavior but we are farking tired of it in Seattle (and surrounding areas).

I don't see a ban on molotovs and fireworks, I see a blanket ban on just about anything.

Let's be honest.

This will only apply to left-wing protestors.

Proud-Boys and Right-wing gang members carrying long guns will not face prosecution.

Rocks, knives, Samurai swords, recoil-less rifles, slingshots... could all be considered "arms" under the meaning of the 2nd Amendment. The courts have never really defined "arms" but if a handgun or a rifle is an arm, then tentatively we can define it as any weapon that can be used, maintained and transported by a single person, since the "right to bear arms" is an individual right. (No fair getting your friends together to use a tank or a howitzer!) It seems that the sheriff doesn't understand at all.

Any word on Bruce Lee or his son? They are deadly weapons.  Something needs to be done about that.

Well, they are trying to do that by banning the weapons they think leftists intend to use.
The solution is simple.
Leftists need to bring guns. It would be better, of course, if nobody brought guns to pubic demonstrations - but if the only way to discourage the alt-right from doing it is for the left to respond in kind, that's what needs to happen.
Remember that big, fat, slow old men are a lot easier to hit.

In other words, banning stuff that might be used in a non-lethal context (although such blows could end up lethal anyway.)  It's not as nonsensical as it sounds at first.
 
2020-10-27 12:56:55 PM  
Back in May, dozens of looters, in what was believed to be a well-organized plan, broke into downtown businesses.

"Instead of actually protecting anything, we've again opted to waste all of our tear gas and officers on corraling peaceful protestors. Gotta let a few busted windows happen so we can justify our existence."
 
2020-10-27 12:59:09 PM  
Can someone help me out here?  I just read the 2nd Amendment like five times and didn't see the word "gun" or "firearm" in there anywhere.  What makes him think it only applies to guns?
 
2020-10-27 1:02:36 PM  
Have terrified police once again gone to DEFCON1 because they fear protestors may once again deploy naughty words and hurtful insults?

Put on your riot gear and get in the armored car, boys -- they're carrying SIGNS!

What a bunch of farking candyasses cops are.

Walmart cashiers put up with more shiat on an average shift than most cops deal with in a year. If a Walmart cashier shot customer for being an asshole who won't follow her directions, her store manager would hold her to a far higher standard than any police department would. She'd be fired on the spot, end of story. And the Walmart down the street wouldn't quietly re-hire her so she could shoot more customers.

He is arbitrarily making a rule which he believes will help the gang he favors and hurt the gang he fears.
He is a fool, and will ultimately experience failure.

They're allowed to ban rocks but if you dare tell someone to leave the gun at home you'll get sued and you'll lose. Only in America.

Are you kidding? A rock might hurt somebody, give them a concussion or something. Guns don't do that.

The craziest part is that these people who put so much faith in these metal allies seem to think that they are a magical superpower, available only to their side.
Guns aren't a superpower - they are an appliance, and they sell them in stores.
anyone can get one - and if sufficiently pressured to do so, will.

We live in the area and got an alert on our phones about this. I pulled up the Bellevue PD twitter feed and it was about 15 people peacefully marching. We all got a laugh.

Sorry for the potato quality of the photo. It was a screen capture

That ban included rocks, sticks and skateboards

Prohibited Item -> Substitute
Rock -> Can of soda
Stick -> Walking cane
Skateboard -> Heavy sign

^^^ 100% this

As interpreted by the Supreme Court, the right to bear arms is an individual right, and that right is not limited to firearms.

It's interesting that you never see any 2nd Amendment groups pitching a fit about this.  Remember Freddie Gray who died in the back of a police van in Baltimore?  The charge against him was that he had an illegal "gravity knife".  And yet the usual right-to-bear-arms crowd was too busy sucking cop cock to question the validity of such  a charge.
 
2020-10-27 2:33:26 PM  
So I have a constitutional right to carry a gun but not the right to carry a screwdriver? The Constitution says the right to bear arms so if they claim the item could be used as a weapon (arms) then it should not be banned.

Most cities have rules against carrying knives.  Carrying a sword is illegal in most places.  Why doesn't the Second Amendment apply to edged weapons?

As a downtown Bellevue resident, I watched all of this take place from high up in my ivory tower. My summary is it was much ado about nothing.

Bellevue PD was given advance notice and gave it to the downtown businesses. After what happened in May/June, this was the right thing to do. Protesters took a cold jaunt around the city and the cops safely closed off streets for them. The only issues (shockingly) were when the protesters were confronted with aggressive counter protesters.

The mayor issuing a public safety order and weapons ban after it was already clear things were under control was incredibly dumb.

Quick question:

If they win do you think somehow we will get sane, competent choices in 2024 from either party?

No?!  Why not?!

In some alternate timeline Beavis is running against Butthead, and  ... sorry, that is this timeline.

Vote for Beavis! At least he's not Butthead.  Yeah, Daria should have won. I remember 2016. Now go vote.

The issue here is not the second amendment.  It's that the City and the Mayor lack the authority to ban firearms.

Washington State Law is very specific that ordinances that are inconsistent with, more restrictive than, or exceed the requirements of state law shall not be enacted and are preempted and repealed.

Washington State Firearms Preemption.

The ability to kill someone at great distance without them even knowing you're there. That's a superpower alright.
