Washington Governor Hypocrisy

From The Post Millennial:

Governor Inslee has ordered up to 750 members of the National Guard to help with security on Monday. The governor’s office said that at least some of the troops on duty Monday will have their weapons.

However, this summer when violent riots rocked downtown Seattle, Inslee sent National Guard troops to the area unarmed.

Washington Fines Restaurant For Trying To Make A Living

From The Chronicle:

The fine includes $9,639 for each day Spiffy’s continued to offer indoor dining after L&I employees told them to stop — a confrontation that spurred days of armed protests last week. The fine was issued Monday, in addition to an “order and notice of immediate restraint,” which in layman terms, tells a business that “you have to come under compliance right now,” according to L&I spokesperson Tim Church.

From The Daily Chronicle:

Mossyrock restaurants may continue offering indoor dining this week despite Gov. Jay Inslee’s new sweeping restrictions after the city passed an ordinance in November saying the city “will not recognize” Inslee’s proclamation until “sufficient COVID-19 information and data is presented to the City that establishes a state of emergency exists within the City.”

WA Confiscation Law Unconstitutional

From NRA-ILA:

Earlier this year, in a ruling of first impression in Washington State, the Kitsap County District Court decided that the state’s compulsory “firearm surrender” laws violated the Fourth and Fifth Amendments and the analogous provisions in the state constitution. “In our constitutional system of government, individuals have rights that the government and its agents (including courts) must respect. Among those rights are the right to be free from compelled self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment, and their counterparts under Washington’s constitution.”

Backlash In Seattle For Funding The Police

From Stop Defunding:

With over 100,000 signatures on our petition, the city council is panicking and has postponed the vote to defund the Seattle Police Department until Monday, August 10th.
On Monday August 3rd 2020, despite having no specific plan, the Seattle City Council will vote to defund the Seattle Police Department.  The defunding of the SPD would mean that up to 800 officers would be fired.  That’s over half of all sworn officers.  It would also mean immensely longer 911 response times and of course, higher crime rates.  Please sign our petition to stop the defunding of the Seattle Police Department and send a message to the city council that says “no” to the defunding the Seattle Police Department.

Washington Attacks Gun Owners While Failing To Prosecute Criminals

From Ammoland:

It evidently doesn’t matter that the two suspects in last month’s fatal fracas could not legally possess, much less carry, firearms. While the state Department of Licensing last Friday advised Ammoland News that there are now 647,233 active CPLs in the state—the highest number of any far western state, except for Utah—suspects William Tolliver and Marquise Latrelle Tolbert don’t have one. They were apprehended after being on the run more than a week, during which time they became examples of a justice system in serious need of repair.

AR Sales Increase Ahead of Washington Gun Law

From The Truth About Guns:

We’ve talked about Washington’s Initiative 1639 before. It puts a host of new restrictions on gun owners, including requiring a permanent waiver of their HIPAA rights before buying a handgun or semi-automatic rifle.

Ahead of this, Washingtonians are buying up everything they can get their hands on. It will be interesting to watch Washington going forward, as this is in many ways an unprecedented restriction. A number of lawsuits are already winding their way through the courts. This will be worth watching.
