Washington State: Please Voice Your Opposition to the Montesano City Council’s Ban on Concealed Carry!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Please Attend the City Council Meeting on Tuesday, June 24!

As we reported last week, the Montesano City Council voted 4-3 on Tuesday, June 10 to enact a new ordinance banning the carrying of concealed firearms in the city’s parks, even by licensed Right-to-Carry permit holders.  This move is a blatant violation of Washington’s preemption statutes and is similar to one by Seattle’s Mayor Greg Nickels.

Councilmen Albert Collins, Chris Hutchings, and Nick Swinhart opposed the ordinance.  Councilmen Chris Thomas, Doug Streeter, Pat Herrington and Rich Klinger voted in favor of it.

The next City Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, on the first floor of Montesano City Hall, located at 112 N. Main Street in Montesano.  This is an ideal opportunity to show the City Council that Montesano’s law-abiding gun owners will not tolerate illegal and unjust attacks on their Second Amendment freedoms.  Please attend this meeting and make your voice heard during the public comment period. 

If you are unable to attend, please contact the mayor of Montesano, Mayor Ron Schillinger, TODAY and respectfully urge him to oppose this violation of state law and this unjust and unwarranted attack on our right to self-defense and Second Amendment freedoms.  Mayor Schillinger can be reached by phone at (360) 249-3021, ext. 102 or via email at mayor@montesano.us.
 

Also, please contact the members of the City Council who voted for the ordinance and respectfully ask them to reconsider this illegal and unjustified measure.  Contact information can be found below.
