    this is a good thing. the fact that this is makin the news potentially raises awareness to criminals that there will be armed people with guns. i hope washington sees a decrease in crime because of this.

    iirc seattle/tacoma is king county?? i live in oregon and do travel to shoreline often for GM certifications. i do not have a washington chl but (have heard its pretty easy to get) i do have an oregon one.sucks there isnt reciprocity there. literally, when i cross the river i unload my gun and put it in the back seat.










    unless i get out of the car, then it comes with me.;)

    If deputies are encouraged...

    There must be a reason. Shouldn't the civilians do it too?

    Exactly.

    I have family in Washington, so I got my WA CPL a few years ago. Easy to do, you just have to endure the waiting period (45 days, as I recall). Plus, it's good for 5 years vs 4 years with the Oregon CHL's. And, the bonus is that you do pick up some reciprocity with a WA CPL that you don't get with an Oregon CHL. Even for a non-resident CPL holder, the following states recognize the WA CPL:

    Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin.

    I think there should be a ticker like the stocks on the news or Powerball by state where they list the number of CPLs/CHLs as it increases. That might help lower the crime rate if some of the dirtbags see that, shoot fire, grandma may just be packin'.

    KXL interviewed Mike Reese (EX chief of po po in Portland) and he reinforced my negative opinion of him. Which is sad, when he took office I thought Portland finally had a chief with brains and balls. His last couple years in office though he was weaksauce. Anywho - they asked him his opinion of King Co Sheriff's announcement - Reese towed the anti-gun line that there was no reason to carry off duty and there was no good to come of it. Because you know, as soon as the blue suit comes off the cop looses his authority, his intelligence, his gun handling ability...oh wait, none of that happens. Reese even raised his shirt for the reporter to show that he was unarmed. Glad he's out of power. Maybe one day, perhaps far in the future, Portland's top cop will actually have smarts and balls and won't be anti gun. Glad I don't live in Portland, though sadly I have to be there for work way too much for my liking.

    Portland has had some doozies. My personal favorite was Charles Moose. It seems all of them only get that position if they kiss the a$$ of the mayor and the city council, which means you have to be ideologically aligned to them - and we know in Portland, what that means.
