    While my letter is not about OC, someone in the comments section mentioned OC before I could!

    You might want to quote the Second Amendment more clearly: Should read infringed, NOT impaired.

    The WA State constitution, Article 1, Section 24 reads as follows:

    RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself, or the state, shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain or employ an armed body of men.
    -http://www.leg.wa.gov/LawsAndAgencyRules/constitution.htm

    Our constitution is even more permissive and already recognizes it as an "individual right" (the thing going on with the DC-ban in SCOTUS) so Steve had it right.

    As I mentioned (and it is hard sometimes to work with 250 words) I was refering to the Washington Constitution.

    Ugh at the people who seem to think that a concealed weapons permit stops felons from carrying; by definition, felons break laws.

    Unbelievable. I was gonna leave a comment, but people just don't get it.
