Snohomish County Council ignores state statute

Printer Friendly VersionPrinter Friendly VersionSend to a FriendSend to a FriendWhat happens when governments ignore the law? The Snohomish County Council is ignoring the fact that a long-standing state preemption statute has nullified the county's 1971 parks handgun ban. They were made aware of the problem and on Wednesday they failed to act on a housekeeping measure to fix the problem. The ordinance is without teeth, it was voided by the 1983 state law, yet they just don't agree with the idea of legally-carried guns in parks. http://www.examiner.com/x-4525-Seattle-Gun-Rights-Examiner~y2010m1d14-What-happens-when-governments-ignore-the-law
