I can and will share copies of the documents I received from the Sheriff Dept when I set up the Long Lake picnic last July13. These include notes from the prosecutors office to the Sheriff.
One that I quote "We have received clarification from our Prosecutor's Office as to our response to complaints regarding this issue in county facilities, specifically county parks."
Info from Claire Bradley for the Prosecutor's Office: "I read Jackie's memo from last September wherein she outlined her conclusion that prohibiting firearms in the county parks violates RCW 9.41.290 and .300. I've looked at the code and done some very cursory rsearch myself.
I obviously agree with Jackie--can't arrest for possessing a firearm in the county park. However, certain other Kitsap Code provision as well as state and federal laws still apply.
1. Discharge of any weapon in the Park is crime that we will prosecute.
2. Obviously, these people must comply with all concealed weapons permits and carry the weapons in a manner consistent with state law(s)."
