Judge allows Seattle to withhold gun tax numbers :: 02/11/2017

A setback for gun rights advocates in Seattle.

A judge is allowing the city to withhold data on how much money it collects from gun and ammunition sales.

“We were pleased with the court’s decision today,” says Assistant City Attorney Kent Meyer, “She denied the plantiff’s motion for summary judgement, and that’s what we asked her to do.”

David Edwards is the lawyer for Dave Workman with the Second Amendment Foundation.

“All he want’s to know is how much Seattle has collected from this tax. Seattle won’t release that number… The judge’s ruling is that she does not have enough facts in front of her to be able to make a decision,” says Edwards.

The city fears releasing the records would violate the privacy of Seattle’s gun sellers.

The Foundation wants the data to support claims the gun tax is a gun control measure disguised as a business tax.
