    Fear and loathing (of guns) by an anti-gunner in Olympia

    It took a while to track down all the witnesses...along with a key source that shall remain unidentified.

    Outstanding article Dave..And everyone from OCDO there represented gun rightsexceptionally well.I thought everyone even from the other groups there did a super job of representing responsible gun owners and who we really are. I alsothinkit took Kline and Cease fire and what, all 14 of them there to support the bill by total surprise,as opposed to thehundreds there representing gun owners.A positive image went a long way.

    Them not getting their way and WSP standing up for the law and not the wishes of a few anti gun people went a long way to show them...



    they are beating a dead horse!

    Thanks everyone who attended. Sounds like all of you did a great job. Mrs Duck and I tried to get there to offer what we could but had a bad day; ran late, got lost (sort of - we lost track of how to get to the hearing room), parking, and so forth. However we learned the layout of Olympia around the Capitol, so we're better prepared for next time.

    Dave, that was a great article.

    I think it's hilarious when these types of people scream, "But you're SCARING everyone with your guns! I'm scared!" I ask.....if you were really SO scared....you wouldn't be in my face about it, now would you? No, you just don't LIKE what I'm doing, so you have to lie, say you're scared, and make a scene about it. Well, sorry bub, but my 2A rights don't stop applying because you have an issue with them.

    As I was walking to the hearing room, 2 troopers came up from behind me and one asked, "what ya carring?" As I showed him my camera, "A canon." I replied. I then told him it was a 9. His partner was laughing so I didn't hear what his comment was. He just shook his head and walked off. That was just after I visited with my Rep. Jan Angel. She wants me to make her an eagle. Should I ? Yeah, it was a good day.:celebrate

    If you think the article was good (it is execelent BTW) you should have been there to see it in living color, it was well worth the trip from Spokane.

    Very generous of you amigo.

    So long as it was accurate, that's the main thing.
