    Nudists Duel With Gun Aficionados Over Proposed Sultan Basin Gun Range

    There's a proposal by the Snohomish County Council to build a gun shooting range on Sultan Basin Road. There's a bunch of folks (including the councilmembers) who support it and a bunch of folks, including environmentalists and neighbors to the site who think it's a dreadful idea. But perhaps the most interesting group to take up a fight against the gun range is the Lake Bronson Club, a nudist group that does its lets-get-naked-and-swim thing about a mile or so from where the gun range is proposed to go.

    Excuse me, but the law specifically allows me to carry my firearm to the meeting. Be interesting to see if the nudists open carry their guns. I guess the right to bare arms should be universal, though.
    But since they used a double negative, does that mean they WANT us to go nude and armed?

    Bearing ARMS in public there is nothing wrong with. It is when you bear "other body parts" the law seems to have a problem...
    "And shepherds we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    E nomine Patri, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."

    FWIW, don't nudists support Open Carry just by virtue of their shunning clothes? I'm not sure I want to consider the thought of a Nudist practicing "Concealed Carry".

    Or quotes?
    From 1991ís "The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear":

    Lt. Frank Drebin: Now, Jane, what can you tell us about the man you saw last night?

    Jane: He's Caucasian.

    Captain Ed: Caucasian?

    Jane: Yeah, you know, a white guy. A moustache. About six-foot-three.

    Frank: Awfully big moustache.

    Surely you're joking?

    No, I'm not joking, and don't call me Shirley.

    I've seen some 'gals that could have hidden an M-60 including basic ammo load.

    The gun would just slide out, to hot and sweaty under there.
