Liberals’ double standards

It is very common for liberals, especially on the West Side of our state, to criticize the more conservative East Side. The new gun law did pass overwhelmingly on the West Side but not on this side, except for the liberal city of Spokane – and that was by only 51 percent.

The attorney general criticizes the state county sheriffs and says, “Just because you don’t agree with a law you should still enforce it.” How hypocritical when Seattle has said they are a sanctuary city and will protect the illegal immigrants and ignore federal law.

The city of Spokane, which is also a sanctuary city, passed an ordinance attempting to stop the U.S. Border Patrol from enforcing federal law in apprehending illegal immigrants who have broken the law. This is what is happening all over the country by the liberals’ double standards.

The new gun law I-1639 will be overturned by the Supreme Court mainly because of the unconstitutional requirement to keep your guns locked up in your own home.
