Edmonds councilman wants gun control on city's legislative agenda
Peterson said last week that he would introduce a resolution at Tuesday's council meeting that would call on the Legislature to pass a package of laws, including a ban on all assault weapons; a ban on large capacity (greater than 10) ammunition magazines; universal background checks, including at gun shows; trigger locks and safe storage requirements; and micro-stamping technology in all firearms sold, purchased or delivered in the state to improve the capability of police to trace fired bullets.
He said he would introduce the resolution as an amendment to the council's legislative agenda passed Dec. 4.
Peterson said that the resolution is a response to the shootings at a school in Newtown, Conn., and other recent shootings.
