    Catching up now that I'm settled back in WA

    My long-time friend, Eugene Volokh (professor of Constitutional Law at UCLA), whom I have known for over 35 years (yep, he was 17 when we met and were both computer programmers), posted this very concise and clear explanation of the Second Amendment and what it means. The next time you are...

    Gotta love Beto O'Roarke!

    Seattle Anti-gunner Councilman Harrell not to run

    Seattle Council anti-gunner is leaving the Seattle City Council at the end of his term, leaving candidate Tammie Morales thus-far unopposed for the seat. The real questions is, will she be any more of a supporter of the Washington and U.S. Constitutions than Harrell?

    Worley wins!

    As I'm sure many of your remember, Mack Worley, then of Vancouver WA, was convicted of unlawful display of a weapon (RCW 9.41.270). The conviction was overturned on appeal (that's how most of these go), whereupon the City of Vancouver filed a Motion to Reconsider. The court summarily rejected...

    I had to share this NY Times article on second thoughts about arming local police in paramilitary style.

    New hope in a weary world

    I just got a call from a prospective client who drew his pistol in self-defense last year and was arrested for it. Kudos! to Renton where the prosecutor objectively evaluated the facts, determined that the act was self-defense, and is now returning the pistol to the defendant who was not...

    Exercising your Fifth Amendment rights

    There are a number of videos on exercising 5th Am. rights related to carrying. Be advised that on June 17, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in Salinas v. Texas that instructs us that now we must actually state that we are exercising our 5th Am. rights or the fact that we simply did...

    A good sign from congress?

    I sent my latest protestation to my members of congress re: pending bad gun laws. Instead of getting the canned "I hate guns and gun owners" missive from Senator Murray, I received the following (which I think is a good sign that someone, somewhere actually might be getting a clue)... Senator...

    Dealing with antis and the press

    The English language is a wonderful language rich with words and phrases that can convey precise meanings. We pro-constitutionalists see that everyday when we hear from the likes of Washington Ceasefire, the media and even the executive. Words create images in our minds that are imbued with...

    Shooting attacking animals

    Someone posted a question last week (or so) about the lawfulness of shooting an attacking dog (I believe, in the context of being in a place where OC is restricted). Search capabilities on this site leave much to be desired, so I thought I'd just post the info as a new thread. Washington state...
