    Guns OK, but no shooting in Lewis County parks Lewis County commissioners plan to vote March 22 to create "no shooting" zones at county parks.
    The Associated Press
    CHEHALIS, Wash. — Lewis County commissioners plan to vote March 22 to create "no shooting" zones at county parks.
    Commissioner Ron Averill told KITI they can't ban guns in parks because of the state law that was clarified by an attempt to ban guns in Seattle parks.
    Averill says the "no shooting" zones should at least set the tone for county parks.

    That is more than acceptable and within State law. The "no shooting" in no way prevents you from shooting is defense of yourself and others.

    Isn't it already illegal? Or are the parks not located in a city where people and property would likely suffer injury or damage?

    It certainly wouldn't be responsible behavior in any case.

    Probably, but they (the county commissioners)have to look like they are doing something, don't they.

    RCW 9.41.300

    2) Cities, towns, counties, and other municipalities may enact laws and ordinances:

    (a) Restricting the discharge of firearms in any portion of their respective jurisdictions where there is a reasonable likelihood that humans, domestic animals, or property will be jeopardized. Such laws and ordinances shall not abridge the right of the individual guaranteed by Article I, section 24 of the state Constitution to bear arms in defense of self or others; and

    Is this one of the Counties where they were refusing to lift the ban on possession in parks?

    I don't believe that there ever was an issue with carrying in parks here. Just a reaction to the furor of other places. No shooting is fine with me. There aren't many county parks that would lend themselves to shooting down here anyway.
