    I heard this laying in bed last night too. Five shots right around 10:30 coming from the Pudget Ridge direction. Seems like we get a weekly drive by shooting somewhere in West Seattle these past few weeks. It’s a shame we can’t catch these people after the fact when it’s a mile from the SouthWest Precinct :(

      We heard three shots, then five more right after, from a half mile away. It’s bonkers. They were even having a community meeting last night just after the first gunshots of the evening were fired. And there were four shots fired only six days before that. It seems like it’s constant.

    Entirely too many guns out there with 99.99% being misused too frequently. Get some self control people!

      Considering the amount of guns that are out there, if 99.99% were being misused the majority of us would walking around with bullet wounds or worse. Thank the almighty your hyperbola isn’t based on facts. Try another approach to get your point across or better yet look into the actual cause of these events.

    Umm? I beleive most guns are kept for home protection, probably unloaded. This doesnt support your 99.9% statistics
