Thought we could pass this around .We had a great meet this sat.Although the article was severly edited.

Here is the NBC affiliate coverage of the event which was pretty creativly edited.The woman from cease fire wasn't there(she had nothing to do with the event)and the resident was refering to gangs when he said it's like the wild west but they left that out...I wish someone else would see that.

We are also afraid of our rights being wittled away and watching the constitution being shredded on a daily basis. Most of us feel that it is imperitive we protect the 2nd ammendment or everything else is academic.We are also tired of crime in our area and have organized the following.We have the support of local business including the local Safeway.We also have the support of our local police dept.

Armed citizens to descend on Apartment community!
Willow Lake, community awareness event, meeting and lunch.

SeaTac, WA. - March 13, 2009 – In response to the shooting on February 17, 2009 at the Willow Lake apartment complex in SeaTac WA.

See story
People are tired of crime in our community. There have been break-ins, vehicle theft, gang activity, drugs sales, even the neighborhood bank was held up. People here have had enough. Washington members of have organized a community lunch and information program for all the residents of our community and surrounding area. We have garnered the support of several local businesses to co-sponsor the event to supply food, drinks and snacks. Elements of the SeaTac police department will talk about the Neighborhood Watch program and other crime prevention programs. Open Carry members will be on hand to inform residents of their right to bear arms and the choices they have in protecting themselves and their property.

The event is scheduled for March 28th 2009 at the Willow Lake Apts.3002 S.208th St., Seatac WA. And will run from 11am to 3pm. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:30am catered by Dino’s Restaurant. Drawing for prizes begins at 2:00pm. All residents of Willow Lakes and surrounding community are invited to join us. Drawings will be held for Safeway gift cards, dinners for 2 at Dino’s, free coffee tickets from Chris at Café’Valle Espresso, free car washes from Squeaky Clean, and many others. Prize drawings are for the residents of Willow Lakes and guests as well as balloons and prizes for the kids. There will be informal discussions of your rights and responsibilities to own and bear arms.

This event is about our community and looking out for our neighbors. It’s about the 2nd amendment, which in the opinion of many is non negotiable. It is about a choice, a choice to take responsibility for the protection of ourselves, our neighbors and the Constitution as it was originally put forth. Our purpose is to demonstrate, that we, those who bear arms are the American people who by the 2nd amendment stand firm for our communities and immovable in the rights given us.

The Washington members of would like to thank Safeway on 216th and Pacific, Chris at Café’Valle Espresso, Tom at Squeaky Clean Carwash and a special thanks to Dev of DINO”s Restaurant for their support of the Constitution and our community, and all of you with OCDO that made this possible.
