Nooo, because your file shows no sign of sensitivity training, which you so obviously need. What they're looking for is more of a social justice warrior than an actual warrior, warrior. Capiche?I have a military 201 file that’s the better part of 4” thick and it’s chalk full of firearms training qualifications.... will that do, Mr. WSP?
It is shall, I remember when it changed. Even before it went shall, it was a rubber stamp. At least for me and mine. Walk in and one of the things they would ask is "why do you want to be able to carry a pistol concealed". Never knew anyone who got a no. My answer was always "I hunt and always carry a pistol with me for emergency use". Don't know if any got a no by coming up with something bizarre.Washington is still a "shall issue" state as far as I know. I've been background checked twice now and will be able to renew next month. I just go to our local PD, fill out the paperwork, write a check.
You are very perceptive! The legislature writes ambiguous laws. The State DOJ staff (unelected bureaucrats) develop policy that advances the agenda often with little direct citizen input and often with parts of policy being written by outside advocacy groups or lifted from other states. All this is then dumped on you under threat of criminality. The more policy that is written, the more it needs help in the form of staff, resources and budgets to administer....and you guessed it, the bigger the bureaucracy or negative head wind you are facing...and if they need more budget then you get the privilege of paying new and exciting fees (read taxes).This is worse than "we need to pass it to see what is in it"
This is pass it, then let's have the WSP figure out what to turn into law. It passes, then they come up with the actual law.
