More laws that won’t work

Regarding the article, “Tacoma considering gun show background checks”: I wonder how the Tacoma city attorney would like to defend the new law in superior courts all over the Northwest? Sure, the promoter would like to comply with the illegal law to make a buck, but the nuts and bolts of the new regulations would not work in the reality of a citizen going to a gun show.

I was a vendor at the Tacoma Dome Gun Show and sold and traded guns and accessories without the benefit of a federal and state firearm dealers license, which is my right. I can only deal with fellow Washingtonians and licensees within the law. This is what I do as a hobby. I have been doing this for 50 years now. We have had an endless stream of regulations restraining trade to the point that our country has a third of the available workers are not working. How can this continue? Our freedom and economy are at jeopardy.
