    Bonney Lake in the que

    So, while the BL code recognizes some relief from penalties for discharge in self defense or defense of others...

    This still seems out of sorts....unless their public meetings are held in the restricted areas of a jail, airport, bar or courthouse:

    Comments? Outside of being plainly illegal, it seems to also qualify pic-nic outside anywhere with my wife and +1 grandchild?

    Sections:

    9.86.010 Public meeting defined.

    9.86.020 Weapons prohibited at public meetings.

    9.86.030 Surrender of weapons at public meeting.

    9.86.035 Unlawful carrying of firearms or concealed firearms without a permit – State statutes adopted.

    9.86.040 Persons excepted from provisions.

    9.86.045 Dangerous weapons – Penalty.


    9.86.010 Public meeting defined.

    “Public meeting” is defined for purposes of this chapter as a place, public or quasi-public, or place of public accommodation as defined in the 1965 Civil Rights Act of the United States Congress, occupied by two or more persons within the confines of the city. (Ord. 703 2, 1995).

    9.86.020 Weapons prohibited at public meetings.

    Every person who carries upon his person or in his hand or hands, concealed or otherwise, any weapon consisting of any instrument or weapon of the kind usually known as slung shot, sand club, or metal knuckles, or spring blade knife, or any knife the blade of which is automatically released by a spring mechanism or other mechanical device, or any knife having a blade which opens, or falls, or is ejected into position by the force of gravity, or by an outward, downward, or centrifugal thrust or movement, any firearm, stun gun, or “tazer,” or any instrument by the use of which injury could be inflicted upon the person or property of another, at any public meeting within the city, shall be guilty of a gross misdemeanor. In addition to any penalty imposed, the dangerous weapon shall be subject to forfeiture by the court pursuant to Chapter 9.41 RCW if it is a firearm as defined therein, and pursuant to this section if it is not a firearm. (Ord. 1058 2, 2004; Ord. 947 1, 2002; Ord. 703 2, 1995).

    9.86.030 Surrender of weapons at public meeting.

    BLMC 9.86.020 shall not apply to any person who, upon entering the place or facility where the public meeting is held or to be held, directly and promptly proceeds to the administrator of the facility or the administrator’s designee and obtains written permission to possess the weapon while on the premises or checks his or her weapon. The person may reclaim the weapon upon leaving but must immediately and directly depart from the place or facility. (Ord. 703 2, 1995).

    Which civil rights Act??

    I am certainly not an expert, but the 1964 CRA related to public places, the 1965 CRA related to voting:...what were the Bonney Lake framers of 1995 aiming at?

    Civil Rights Act of 1964

    P.L. 88352 Prohibited discrimination in public accommodations, facilities, and schools. Outlawed discrimination in federally funded projects. Created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to monitor employment discrimination in public and private sectors. Provided additional capacities to enforce voting rights. Extended the Civil Rights Commission for four years. Passed by the 88th Congress (19631965) as H.R. 7152.

    Voting Rights Act of 1965 P.L. 89110

    Suspended the use of literacy tests and voter disqualification devices for five years. Authorized the use of federal examiners to supervise voter registration in states that used tests or in which less than half the voting-eligible residents registered or voted. Directed the U.S. Attorney General to institute proceedings against use of poll taxes. Provided criminal penalties for individuals who violated the act. Passed by the 89th Congress (19651967) as S. 1564.
