    Greetings.

    I'm a lurker who now has something to contribute.

    I went to the fair in Yakima today and thought I'd share my experience. I was unarmed, went through the turn-style and asked the 4 attendants if it was ok to open carry. They had no idea what I meant so I explained it to them. They said no.They also referred to the sign saying no weapons.

    I then asked who owned the fair. They said it was the county and city of Yakima.

    Is this correct of them or not?

    -------------------

    Later, I went to the Yakima Sherrifs department booth. I asked one of the cops if it was true that open carry was legal. He said yes but that I should carry concealed so as not to have people call in all the time; and so you don't get stopped every 20 feet.

    He clearly tried to discourage me from OC since it will be just too much of a hassel for me, and that it will freak out too many people.

    Is this correct of them or not? Definitly not. Public property at a public event, can't have any restrictions stronger than the states.

That is the general opinion of pretty much every LEO, but again it is just their opinions. Not law.

    He clearly tried to discourage me from OC since it will be just too much of a hassel for me, and that it will freak out too many people. Sounds like the problem of the people who get freaked out at the site of some metal on a persons hip.

    Did he try to discourage you from exercising any other Amendments contained in the Bill Of Rights, State Law or State Constitution?



    It’s sick how those will discourage your rights, the very rights and laws they sore to uphold. Are those who value the 2nd seen as second class citizens?
    Im proudly straight. I'm free to not support Legalization, GLBT, Illegal Aliens, or the Islamization of America.
