Seattle Times letters to the editor

February 22, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Guns legally allowed on Capitol campus

Inequality of permissions

This week I attended a hearing in a state Senate hearing room. On waiting to sign in, the attendant made it clear that I was to remove my jaunty little fisherman cap (with no advertising or political message). Evidently no hats, even unobtrusive ones are allowed.

However, I could have walked into a hearing room or legislative session with a fully loaded weapon openly carried [“As gun laws debated, state Capitol welcomes firearms,” NWSunday, Feb. 10].

Isn’t there something wrong with this picture when a small harmless accessory is prohibited, but not a potentially dangerous and intimidating weapon?

–Pat Griffith, Seattle
