Yesterday I went to a park I'd never been to before, Lord Hill Park southwest of Monroe in Snohomish county. It is about 1300 acres and mostly 2nd growth forest, trails looping through it but mostly wilderness/forest, along the north bank of the Snohomish River about four or five miles west of downtown. At the entrance the park rules sign said prominently "No Weapons." I wasn't carrying a gun but this struck me as odd - because unless the legislature has made a particular exemption for this one county park, that's complete BS, correct? I use state parks and country parks a lot for horseback riding, and I have never seen a sign trying to pre-empt the state laws, even in the King County Collective. Is there actually a state enactment for Snohomish county, or are they just that legally obtuse? I'm not a Snohomish county resident; does anyone here know? I think if I were I'd be calling the county and finding out what law/ordinance they are citing for their authority.
