Do not make any attempt to stop it if they try, simply state calmly but firmly that you are not consenting and that you believe they are currently violating Article 1, Section 7 of the WA state constitution, as well as the 4th amendment of the US constitution.So I came across this and it spawned a question.
Under the precedence of district and supreme court verdicts could you refuse disarmament by LEO during a "Terry Stop" based upon an vauge tip of a person being armed but there actions by the caller do not indicate unlawful activity? Also could you contest that the search of your openly carried firearm to run the serial number,is a violation of your fourth amendment rights?

Furthermore I am speaking with representatives in Lacey and Olympia about Pre-emption violations by both cities reguarding Lacey Parks and Olympia walk/bike/horseTrails, Olympia Woodland Trail.
