(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would require safe storage of firearms in Washington appears dead for this legislative session.  The measure, which would make it illegal to store a gun in a place where it's found by a child and used to cause injury or death, had a deadline for passage out of the House by Wednesday, but didn't meet that deadline.  The measure was sponsored by Representative Ruth Kagi of Seattle.  One fellow Democrat tells the Everett "Herald" the bill went too far by allowing law enforcement to go into homes to inspect how guns are stored.
