    OC at King County GOP Summer Picnic Sat July 12 @ Marymoor Park?

    I was going to put this in the events section, but it's not really so much an attempt to organize an event as asking a few questions:

    -Anyone here planning on OCing to the KCGOP picnic?
    -Are there restrictions on firearms due to KCGOP "reserving it" as a "private entity" 'leasing a public space' via the Sequim decision?
    -Does the KCGOP historically ban OC at its events?

    I thought I might go. John Carlson and Lars Larson will also be there.

    I'll answer with a couple of questions...

    Is it open to the general public without the need to buy a ticket? Can you just show up and attend?

    If so then carry on. My guess is that unless they close down the park to everybody except those invited then they can't do squat.
    Armed and annoyingly well informed!

    There are two constants when dealing with liberals:
    1) Liberals never quit until they are satisfied.
    2) Liberals are never satisfied.

    I wasn't sure about that because they are charging an admission fee, but I'm not sure if it's mandatory or optional as a contribution.

    They all seemed happy that there was someone opencarry there.

    An NRA rep knows SVG and said hello.
