SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and the gun control group Washington CeaseFire are launching a program to allow businesses to declare themselves “gun free zones.”
They called a 10 a.m. news conference Monday to announce details.
Businesses that participate would place a “Gun Free Zone” decal in the window. Police could consider a visitor who violates the rule a trespasser.
Washington CeaseFire says dozens of businesses have already signed up, including Cafe Racer, where a gunman killed four customers in May of last year.
