How new are theses signs?
Thread: Help in Richland, WA
Hello, I just joined hoping to get some help in Richland, WA.
The parks department has started putting up "no guns" signs with the text below "except as permitted by RCW 9.41". Since open carry is not expressly mentioned in 9.41 (or anywhere for that matter) they seem to think they can ban it when state pre-emption says otherwise.
The problem is that I work for the city (unrelated department) and fear repercussion if I bring anything up. Would anyone here mind contacting them to attempt to enlighten them?
Park location: https://email@example.com...19.2482422,18z
Sign (really, I rotated them, dunno what imgur is doing):
City Attorney: Heather Kintzley firstname.lastname@example.org
Director of Parks and Public Facilities: Joe Schiessl email@example.com
Recreation Manager of Parks and Public Facilities: Phil Pinard firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for the help!

Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

Don't see this as an issue. RPD is aware that OC is legal.
I don't see an issue either. The only problem is they're hoping most will not understand the rcw 9.41 reference. Don't worry about the open carry part. Laws prohibit and restrict. If it's not expressly mentioned then it's legal.
They're just playing word games.

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
Throw me to the wolves and I will come back leading the pack.
Isn't it a sad statement of our current affairs when those working for the public can't speak up for the public.

of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
