    Sounds like AuburnPD needs educating.

    Heard this on the news tonight.
    Agreed, the suspect was stupid. But that aside... .isten to the last sentence before the "on the scene" reporter signs off.

    According to the RCWs I've read ... APD is wrong. So after Vancouver, the next BBQ is in Auburn?

    Yeah, that last line in the report was WAY OFF about it being illegal to bring a gun to a park. Also, I loved the quote from the mom that was something like, "you don't being a GUN to a park where there's kids!" I'll I could think is, that's EXACTLY where I would want a good guy to be armed.

    Well you know... guns tend to go off on their own anytime they're withing a 30' radius of a child. Of course we wouldn't want guns around children!

    Too bad about the last line of the news report. That was B.S. They probably meant it was illegal to bring a BB gun to a park, which may be the truth, and not against state preemption.
    At the end of the article

    Prosecutors say he has a previous criminal history.

    I work in Auburn, open carry to and from the office every day.

    I have never run into an Auburn cop, but would be down for a picnic or other gathering

    <edit> It looks like the article was updated this morning... no mention of the legality of carrying in the park. Retracted?!?!?

    I think an Auburn event would be great, but it would be foolish to take a stand/plant the flag/make a point/whatever you want to call it, in connection to this news story. It's not sympathetic to our cause.

    There is a very weak nexus between our cause and this story, vis a vis the statement about guns being illegal in parks, and it's not a positive one. Let's not exploit it just to make a point.

    It's clear there are idiots on both sides of this story. I don't want our cause connected to any of them.

    Good call Lt. Big D, I don't think at this juncture it would be a good idea.

    Your point is a very important one. There are far too many out there who carry firearms or even pseudo firearms like this bonehead and don't use the brain god gave them. Their actions are associated with the rest of us in the public's eye, unfortunately.

    Anything that can be done to separate the legitimate actions of lawful gun owners and carriers is essential. Think ahead so we don't become one in the same in the public eye with the fools.

    It's too bad we don't have a professional PR firm on the payroll. They could be out there in the media with press releases stating "lawful gun owners abhor the actions of this idiot". That's one area we could sure use some help. The anti's get the press and we are falling behind in the PR department.

    I had a ass mgr tell me that when I had two children with me at McDonalds. Before I could say anything other customers told him it was legal in WA. He let it go because they were ok with it.

    Open carry at the park probably wouldn't be the best idea. A better one would be to focus on the incorrect reporting and add comments and letters. Reporting like that when a story first comes out is incredibly damaging.
    Is it legal to carry a BB gun concealed? I can't help but try to guess he's not a felon, but he's still a criminal. I can also guess he doesn't have a CPL
