    Nice. We wanted to go further north but still had to stay somewhat close to CDA for jobs, so we settled outside of Spirit Lake.

    Open Carry Idaho Report

    Seen a lot of OC here in N Idaho (Kootenai County) since moving here last year. Done it also but the cold weather puts a bit of a damper on it. Never had a bad interaction and no one seems to care.

    WAGR's new initiative for 2016: Extreme Risk Protection orders

    To channel the demon Psaki and "circle back" the Seattle Slimes did a follow up puff piece to try and justify the "good" this law has supposedly done while violating the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments of the Federal constitution (not to mention myriad parts of the state constitution). In...

    New Police chef in Snohomish Says you can't open carry

    While the ignorant chief is possibly referencing the unpublished state v Casad decision (time, place, manner = 'unlawful') and implying that even though it isn't precedent a court could go that way again), the chief is definitely wrong about his statements on WA law and citizens stopping...

    Washington State senator 'encourages' other legislators to carry guns on campus

    They weren't OCing, they were full-on brandishing in violation of .270 and the feckless WSP refused to do their job and arrest them, prompting the idiotic legislature to ban OC in the galleries and hearing rooms. If WSP had done their jobs and arrested these brandishers, we'd still have...

    WA House Republican's Amendment to 594 reform bill bans Open Carry for self-defense

    The problem was that the amendment technically restricted open carry when it comes to self-defense temporary transfers if the transferee does not have a CPL, which many open carriers do not. UPDATE: I got in contact with an associate who works with the Representative and they told me this was...

    Mr. 594 Dan Satterberg wants 3-strikes felons to go free

    You all remember RINO Dan Satterberg right? The guy who pushed 594 and claimed he needed it to prosecute criminals but then promptly turns around and drops charges and cuts deals on firearm charges even for notorious and infamous serial killers. If you don't remember this will jog your memory...

    WAGR's new initiative for 2016: Extreme Risk Protection orders

    Well, looks like we may be off the hook on the "AWB" or preemption repeal, however EPOs are pretty dangerous given their obvious unconstitutionality and despicable nature in creating a new standard of "guilty until proven innocent." I doubt the final draft will contain strict or maybe even ANY...
