Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and the gun control group Washington CeaseFire are launching a program to allow businesses to declare themselves "gun free zones."

Businesses that participate would place a "Gun Free Zone" decal in the window. Police could consider a visitor who violates the rule a trespasser.

According to KOMO news in Seattle, about a dozen businesses on Capitol Hill have already jumped on board with the program.

But, gun rights activists say it's discrimination toward people who are exercising their civil rights.

Washington is a free carry state and more than 350,000 people here are permitted to carry a concealed weapon.

What do you think? Good idea? Bad? Should we do the same thing in Spokane?
