    I was just reading about an effort in Florida to allow citizens with firearms to possess them under and emergency evacuation order, and how that's being opposed by the Florida Sheriff's Association.

    Does Washington or Oregon have any laws similar to Florida's? I don't recall knowing about anything like it, but I'd rather not find out the hard way.

    We were evacuated from our place during the '96 floods.
    A state cop stopped by as we were loading the trunk of the car. He saw guns there and asked about them.
    I told him they would be safer where we were going than being left in an unattended house.

    He agreed with me.

    My memory fails but I think this was added to SB401 a year or two ago, after the Katrina seizures uproar. But I could be wrong.
    Also, a bit more browsing found me:

    I take it under CURRENT Florida law one can NOT possess firearms during an 'Emergency Activation Order'. That being the case what other rights are taken away by this 'Order'?

    I'd guess quite a few.
