There are a bunch of reasons for this. One has to do with sale taxes. But I think another, which will become more and more influential as time goes on (unless something changes radically) is that no one ever died when a swarthy young man with a gun tried to shoot up a web site.
The FBI said Saturday that there is no indication of a terrorism link in a shooting at a Seattle-area mall that killed 5.They've got pictures of the guy from the mall's security system and they're trying to say he's Hispanic. I say bullshit: that guy is Middle Eastern.
"We have no indication this was a terrorism act," an assistant special agent in the FBI's Seattle office said at a press conference Saturday morning on the shooting. "There is no evidence to support that."

Looks like he made a clean get-away.
If I was a betting man, I'd bet two things:
1. The mall is a posted "no-gun" zone.
2. His name is "Mohammed".

Wouldn't be surprised if the media had conveniently left out his middle name, though.

Just a reminder - Washington State was one of those places which had tightened their gun laws because they wanted to 'do something' about gun violence.

I don't have to agree with someone about everything in order to like them.
I don't have to hate them because we disagree about something.

They prefer it to doing laps outside because it's warm, dry, has drinking fountains and bathrooms, and it's always well lit.
And... it's perceived as being safer.
