Stories on gun inits, congressional race drawing comments

People who say there's no passion in this year's mid-term elections don't read the online newspaper's comments. 

It's not really a surprise, but Sunday's story on the two gun control initiatives and Tuesday's story on the 5th Congressional District race are generating significant comments elsewhere on this website.

Of course, almost anything to do with gun control sets off passionate debate in the region. And between the low approval ratings for Congress and the strong partisan feelings that Democrats have for incumbent Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and the reciprocal regard Republicans have for any Democratic challenger, almost anything on the race can get the juices, and the comments, flowing.
