Washington To Ban Firearms At Protests And State Capitol

From Crosscut:

Over opposition from Republicans and gun-rights activists, both houses of the Legislature have passed a ban on weapons within 250 feet of protests or on the Capitol campus in Olympia. Backers say empowering police to remove or arrest armed onlookers addresses widespread complaints from demonstrators and reduces a bona fide safety risk.

After a year of protests in Portland and Seattle about police brutality and defunding the police Washington State now wants to give the police more power? The entire Northwest is schizophrenic. They don’t know what they want.

Opponents of I-594 Gather in House Gallery and Swap Guns

From Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

A group of 15 to 18 gun advocates did march into the Capitol.

They arrived in the House Gallery just as the state House of Representatives was adjourning.  They heckled members on the floor, and made a show of violating I-594 by exchanging weapons in the Gallery. A Washington State Patrol officer instructed one demonstrator on how to more safely hold his gun.
