    Carrying while wearing a mask??

    Was watching the US Lawshield webinar yesterday, & there was a mention that in some states, it's illegal to carry a firearm while wearing a mask. One of the states mentioned was Washington State. I've never heard this before & am unable to find a specific citation to a law/rule saying that it's...

    Law Enforcement suspending non-criminal fingerprinting

    If you're arrested & put in corrections, you're fingerprinted. Unless the jurisdiction differs, most "ordinance violations" are infractions, like a traffic ticket.

    Eastern WA OC Report

    Dark color shirt, combined with people only seeing past the tip of their nose. With how I have the Alien Gear ShapeShift Shoulder Holster configuration done, when arms are down at side, unless you know what to look for, the sidearm is hidden. That's how the Maverik employee noticed was that...

    Costco here is currently $2.35, whereas yesterday when I gassed up there it was $2.49. When gassing up yesterday, no one noticed I was carrying.

    Eastern WA OC Report

    Went to Tri-Cities yesterday to run a few "essential" errands AKA eliminate cabin fever. While stopped at the Maverik on Keene & Duportail, checking out after getting drinks, the Adventure Guide looked at me then exclaimed "I didn't even notice you carrying" after I inputted my alternate ID at...

    Both Benton County Sheriff & Richland Police have suspended non-criminal fingerprinting operations. Most law enforcement agencies doing this will post via social media that they are taking such action.

    Law Enforcement suspending non-criminal fingerprinting

    Fingerprinting is done for various reasons, not just for criminal reasons. Decennial Census operations are in the midst of hiring, & a requirement for hiring is to be fingerprinted for background check.

    Law Enforcement suspending non-criminal fingerprinting

    I know of several law enforcement agencies here in Washington State are suspending non-criminal fingerprinting operations (CPL/CCL/CHL, Employment, etc.) due to COVID-19 concerns. I know there are some states/localities that mandate that in order to OC, one must have the CPL to do so. Anyone...

    What no uproar over WA HB 2240 or SB 6077

    In regards to all the "gun safety/common sense" proposed legislation here in WA, there are several citizens & elected officials that are fighting what Gov. Inslee, AG Ferguson, & (outside the state influence) Bloomberg want done. In regards to NRA involvement, there's a new NRA-ILA person for...

    Open Carry in Practice: Who's done it? | Vigilance Elite

    The policy from WalMart Home Office is that they'd prefer no one OC in the stores, however it's up to store-level management to make that decision if to allow or not.

    Open Carry in Practice: Who's done it? | Vigilance Elite

    I prefer to open carry over concealed carry, lately. It just all depends on the plans of the day. Been doing more trips to Costco lately & know their dislike for responsibly armed citizenry, so have to CC when going there. Unfortunately winter is here & been doing a bit more CC over OC.

    Walmart requesting no one open carry in stores

    Another idea is to talk to Walmart associates that support the 2nd Amendment, as associates are allowed to buy stock via payroll deductions.
