Washington: Attorney General Issues Monumental Pro-Gun Opinion!

Friday, October 17, 2008

On Monday, October 13, Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna (R) issued an important decision regarding Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels’ brazen attack on Right-to-Carry. 

In short, Attorney General McKenna’s opinion affirmed Washington State’s preemption statutes by saying that cities cannot enact laws prohibiting the possession of firearms on city property or in city-owned facilities. 

Thank you to Attorney General McKenna for standing up for the Second Amendment freedoms of Washington’s law-abiding gun owners.  Also, thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in opposition to Mayor Nickel’s brash violation of state law.
