    Those darn guns are so violent!  I read the first article and found the following quote:  “He’s a violence interrupter: meaning his team is boots on the ground, sometimes dodging bullets, trying to diffuse shootings between gangs and young people”.  So maybe King County has a gang and young people violence crisis?  Or at least correct the story so it reflects the headline:  “. . .trying to diffuse shootings between guns and other guns.”

    RushBabe, I always read your postings about Seattle.  I endure pretty much the same dysfunction as I live in the Bay Area of California.

    Thank you. I plan to bike the jeep trail to Devil’s Head, and find a place to shoot the new AR-15 somewhere along the way.

    I haven’t bought ammo in quite a while. I’m coasting on stash. Assuming the rifle works ok, I can spare a hundred green tip to check it out.
