Just Move Along, There's No 'Common Sense' Here

In an article from the Seattle Times hyped by WA Ceasefire (who just dumped $50K on bus ads) and Brady Board member Joan Peterson, they are pushing for a mandatory trigger lock law due to a recent school shooting:
In the Bremerton case, police believe a 9-year-old classmate got the handgun during a visit with his mother,
So one would assume a trigger lock law would have stopped this, right? Think again:
a felon whose right to own a firearm has been revoked. The gun was in his backpack when it accidentally discharged.
Oh look at that. Their primary example is someone who's ALREADY a criminal for even having a gun in the first place. Obviously if we add some other stupid, bureaucratic requirement that would have made this multiple felon think twice.

Yes. They really are this ignorant.

Trigger locks are also trivially easy to defeat. Any nerdy pre-teen with an Internet connection can learn how to pick them in seconds.
