Dozens rally for gun rights in Kirkland

Dozens of people, some openly carrying their rifles and pistols, demonstrated in favor of gun rights along Central Avenue on Saturday.

It was organized by Kirkland resident Jacob Kukuk, 23, calling his supporters the 2ndEnforcers. “It is a right you have. An unused right will disappear,” he said.  He said he opposes regulations proposed by President Obama and a short-lived legislative proposal in Washington state to allow police inspections of gun owners’ homes. Kukuk said he supports allowing school staff to carry concealed weapons.

A few counter-protesters showed up, including Rev. Marian Stewart of the Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church, who carried a sign saying, “One child killed every three hours.” Stewart said, “I can’t sit there and watch everybody crying over Sandy Hook, and sit there and do nothing.”
