    I am a retired LEO with 27 years. I worked for Klickitat County Sheriff 20 of those years.

    The current Sheriff Bob Songer has been a LEO for well over 30 years. He is adamant 2nd A guy that currently, as Sheriff attends local 2nd rallies, in fact is attending and speaking at one tomorrow here locally; https://www.facebook.com/events/2778412658863793

    This is the Sheriff of Klickitat County, where my training facility resides.

    Another WA LEO refuses to enforce the new I-1639 law that's gone into effect.

    We now have a few sheriffs and even a couple police chiefs up this way who not only possess common sense, an understanding of our federal and state constitutions, but cojones as well.

    Regrettably, almost all of them are East of the Cascades -- in the more sparsely populated and rural areas, on the conservative side of the state.

    strange to think 5 years ago, WA was one of the most pro gun states in the US, and relaxing some of the laws they had. It really was two counties, until the bused in voting system took over. Maybe when Seattle finally kills Amazon, the payed voters will stop. Who knows. BTW, for those outside they region, the initiatives really do collect signatures by lying about the cause (594 was advertised as a VA overhaul petition here in Whatcom Co), and the person who writes the description on the ballot really does misrepresent the law.

    You can probably thank the likes of "Bloomnut" and Bill Gates for the problems in Washington state.

    they would go around to Walmart, asking signatures for a bill to help the VA, go to grocery stores asking for signatures for school funding, colleges for affordable housing. Whatever demographic would blindly sign.

    Yes I have seen that done in CA as well. Lying about the intent of legislation to get signatures. With a giant list of signatures on top and the details of what you are even signing underneath the page presented to the average person to sign.The signature collectors are often young people paid to work by a non-profit or activist group and motivated to get signatures.
    Most shoppers take the word of the guy trying to get signatures, and make their decision to sign or not based on what they are verbally presented. They are already bothered just to be stopped and the minority of shoppers that even stop to hear what the person has to say would rather spend 10-20 seconds with the guy's summary than 5 minutes to actually ready the paperwork.

    Then the Voters got what they deserved. The State of Washington has nothing to do with the VA.

    Those towns and counties should pass sanctuary gun laws to protect gun owners.

    yup. Sad thing. The people of Seattle may have learned a lesson, since this "sign here to stop the clubbing of baby seals!" petition bit them with $370 yearly car tax that was only going to "hurt the rich". Well, turns out if you have a car, you must be rich, plus a soon to everyone income tax, universally accepted as the one major cause of economic prosperity in WA, comming to an end.

    Pretty sad hearing about this - a long way from south Florida.. Now our sheriff - that shining example of leadership... was just removed from office by our new governor - for the sad example his agency set during the Parkland incident where 17 were murdered...

    Just about every one down here.... is from someplace else...

    That said - Broward has had a long history of being political (kind of a little New York, etc.). Many years ago the guys I worked with said that all the city departments in Broward referred to the BSO deputies as the "men with no legs" since they'd back you up - by sitting in their cars... Hope that they've changed all these years later (I retired out from a city police force in Dade county - just south of Broward in 1995 so what little I know of BSO stems from before then..). Like I said, hope they've pulled up their socks since then. Just to give you the full flavor of where I live in the south end of Broward county.... Debbie Whatsername Schultz - is my congressional representative - lucky me....
