A group of religious leaders from numerous different faiths called on Washington state lawmakers Thursday to change the state’s gun laws. The new group spans several different religions, including Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. It represents a new voice joining the chorus that’s calling for more gun restrictions following the Connecticut school shootings.
Seattle City Councilmember Bruce Harrell says he wants to explore the idea of a ballot initiative to let cities pass their own gun laws. Cities are not currently allowed to regulate guns beyond existing state law. We'll talk with Harrell about what changes he'd propose for Seattle, and hear reaction from Joe Waldron of the Gun Owners Action League of Washington.
