    Gasworks Park, and OC----CC

    I heard on NPR that the police are going to be searching bags at Gasworks park in Seattle. Am I wrong about this: Isn't it a public space? Can the police really stop you from taking your family (or yourself) there to watch fireworks, if you are OC or CC'ing?

    I'm not a newbie here, but I thought it odd to hear that LEO's would be searching backpacks, and such.

    Gas Works Park

    Getting In

    Gas Works Park opens at noon on July 4 and admission is free. There are two entrance gates to the Family 4th, one at the north end of the parking lot and the other to the south. There will be a security check prior to entering the park and all those entering are subject to search. Prohibited items:

    • Personal Barbecues
    • Alcohol
    • Fireworks
    • Pets
    • Weapons
    • Tent Stakes
    • Glass bottles
    • Knives with blades over 3" in length

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Maybe someone should call and ask?

    • I am not your Mommy or Daddy and do not sugar coat it but I will tell you simply as how I see it, it is up to you on how you will or will not use it.
    • IANAL, all information I present is for your review, do your own homework.

    The event is produced by onereel, which appears to be private. They may have a lease agreement with the City for the park for the duration of the event, which would give them private property rights within the lease area.

    That is one way they could get away with the ban on weapons.

    I was out shooting (photography) the other night, and lost my phone, or I would call them.

    No Dave, you only lose guns on boating trips, not phones.

    Maybe this is another little "tweek that we need if you can get the right people elected. That, unlicensed loaded vehicle carry, and at least a minimum of an exemption to the "display" problem.

    And the answer is (he queried with bated breath)?
    Rev. Robert Apgood, Esq.

    A right cannot be lost by exercising it. McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025, 130 S. Ct. 3020, 3021, 177 L. Ed. 2d 894 (2010) (citing Near v. Minn., 283 U.S. 697 (1931)).

    Although IAAL, anything I say here is not legal advice. No conversations we may have privately or otherwise in this forum constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship, and are not intended to do so.
