I missed this on Monday afternoon as I was preparing to leave on a business trip.
US District Court Judge Benjamin Settle of the Western District of Washington allowed the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund for I-594 to intervene as defendants to the suit brought by the Second Amendment Foundation. Judge Settle refers to WAGR and Everytown as “citizens and organizations operating in Washington State” in his order granting their motion.
WAGR is perhaps a local organization but the reality of considering Everytown as a local organization boggles the mind. Has the judge been watching too many programs on Syfy and magically teleported New York City to Seattle? It does go to show how the efforts of Bloomberg’s minions to set up corporations in many states has helped them in this situation.
I’m at an out of town meeting so I’ll let Dave Workman provide more background and insight into this.
