Second Amendment Foundation

BELLEVUE, WA --(Ammoland.com)- The Second Amendment Foundation today applauded the overdue policy change at Seattle’s public libraries regarding the legal carry of firearms by law-abiding citizens in library facilities.

In recognition of this policy change, reported by Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat, SAF is donating an autographed copy of Washington Times Senior Opinion Editor Emily Miller’s new book, Emily Gets Her Gun But Obama Wants to Take Yours, to the library. The book details Miller’s efforts to legally purchase a handgun for personal protection in the District of Columbia, which has one of the most cumbersome handgun laws in the country.

If there is any place in the country where that book should be available to urban readers, it might be the Jet City,” said SAF’s Dave Workman, senior editor for TheGunMag.com, a print and on-line publication owned by the Bellevue-based national organization. He also writes a column on firearms issues for Examiner.com.

“We’re delighted that the Seattle public library appears to be finally recognizing that it must comply with the right to carry,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “We hope that the library makes good use of Emily’s eye-opening book, and makes it available to library patrons so they can learn just what happens when bureaucracies create regulatory nightmare schemes to discourage people from exercising their constitutionally-protected civil rights.”

Emily Gets Her Gun is published by Regnery Publishing, Inc., of Washington, D.C. The 370-page book chronicles Miller’s months-long effort that began with a burglary and led through a sea of confusing and costly regulatory steps. Texas Gov. Rick Perry calls the book “a must read for anyone who cares passionately about the right to bear arms.”

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. In addition to the landmark McDonald v. Chicago Supreme Court Case, SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; New Orleans; Chicago and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers and numerous amicus briefs holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.
