Traveling to another county won’t do you any good. Your background check will be sent to your local agency that covers the area where you reside.Agreed as we have found out painfully in the past, as I sit here looking at my newly arrived in the mail request for money from the SAF I can't help but wonder why there have been lawsuits filed in other states yet not here! I cannot go purchase a gun right now as the Whatcom Co. Sheriff and Bellingham PD locally are not processing background checks. I suppose I could travel to another county. So preemption is no longer law here in Washington! The point in this is that I have no answers and as the CEO of a 2500 member gun club here in Whatcom Co. I am getting calls daily asking these questions and there is no place to get a straight answer. I get it you may not want to publicly disclose the strategy feel free to PM me. I am thankful for your efforts Dan and please don't read this as a dig on you or SAF a great many of us out here would gladly reach deeper in our pockets if we had a clue what was going on! Do we in localized areas that are being infringed need to spend our money locally and sue ourselves??
Store are open in pierce co.....Inslee issued a new list of "essential" businesses. I don't see firearms dealers as being allowed to operate. Do you?

It seems to me that Inslee has achieved his dream of shutting down firearms owner transactions simply by excluding firearms dealers from this list. This is much easier for him than getting a bill passed in the legislature or via billionaire funded initiative. I think this is something that the SAF should be examining as a constitutional challenge.
Most of the gun stores I know are open....not missing a beat.I find it strange that the 2AF hasn't brought suit against Jerkoff Jay yet. They've already threatened and/or sued PA, NJ, DE, PDRK, NOLA and yet, haven't really done much in their home state. My hope is that the 2AF will soon announce either a lawsuit or a change in WA's essential list.
Yup and business is booming. It seems like every time I drive by County Line, there's barely room to park.Most of the gun stores I know are open....not missing a beat.
