    Disallowing of OC at city council meetings & city offices

    This was just one of the reasons I left Washington. I move away to Montana where open carry is a norm. I went to Town Council meetings, armed, for a year before taking a seat on the Council. I open carry during meetings and the population supports it and me. Constitutional carry too.

    Everett Police offering gift cards for firearms

    I remember when seattle did that, years ago. We drove down there and stood on streetcorners, like a bunch of hookers, waiving cash. I took home a half dozen firearms to include a WWI german battle rifle to a 30-30 Winchester lever made in 1949. Total cash output was US$275. A grand day.

    I attended. No, I am not running for a State level position, I already occupy a seat on my Town Council.

    What Would You Say to Someone Who Freaks Out at the Sight of a Gun?

    A letter of condemnation will be in the next paper. I am backed by three out of four Councilmen. One cannot see past the "gun" and missises the Freedom part entirely.

    What Would You Say to Someone Who Freaks Out at the Sight of a Gun?

    Old thread, new situation. At the last Town Council meeting the Librarian gave her report. On her agenda was the Libraries recommendation to BAN Open Carry in the Library ( a few have complained). We have requested her to come back and justify this attempt. The fact that almost sixty three...

    Local Sam's Club 'leave OC firearm in the car' upon entrance?

    Yeppers, my walmart, in Butte, has a "no firearms" sign. I have walked past it many times with my 1911 on my hip. No comments from anyone. Corporate may require it, but Montana ignores it

    Philipsburg Town Council

    Well the "threat of physical violence" was immediately followed by an "act of physical violence" as I grabbed him by the throat. The timing of that act was proper not only in my opinion, but that of the Montana Code Annotated and the Attorney General. I did meet with the AG and I was...

    I will be visiting with the AG today. Hopefully he is just uninformed as to the circumstances. It will either be over today or we shall be getting difficult.

    Philipsburg Town Council

    Well, a new development. The "adversary" and I both want to drop this. The AG wants to hold a "deferred prosecution" over MY head, for a YEAR for my comments. He has not yet contacted me with this information. This will not happen. I will not tolerate being accused of assault when I was...
