I only State Law was in force then all crimes covered would have to be prosecuted by the State AG.I was just reading the Federal Way synopsis of open carry that they put out for their officers and was curious about the FW ordinances that are listed at the bottom of the document. Aren't they a violation of state law? Seems like state preemption ONLY allows local governments to pass laws restricting the firing of weapons and restricting non permit holders in certain areas.
I'm not from FW but has anyone challenged these ordinances?
The preemption law says that only laws "more restrictive" are nullified.
