Jim Beal, a huge advocate for guns rights and Open Carry has passed. He will be greatly missed for his endeavors in the gun rights community and that as a great friend. Rest in Peace My Friend.

The Pacific Northwest has indeed lost a great advocate for firearm rights.

Very sad news.
He did much for all of us.
His long efforts to,
Preserve, Protect and Defend our
Second Amendment right, and our
United States and Washington State Constitution.
He was too young.
He was my friend.
He will be missed.
Will their be a memorial service?

Rest In Peace Jim

I have to admit, I met Jim once and he didn’t like me much, and I don’t blame him because I was younger and stupider at that time, but I know he was a tireless advocate for our rights and I offer my sincerist condolences to his family and friends. Rest In Peace Jim and thank you for all your hard work in defense of our freedoms.

I know he wasn't a Washatonian, but I just learned Grapeshot has passed also. He was also a well respected member here. We've lost a couple of good guys.

As a reminder, Tahoma National Cemetery is Federal Land. Open Carry would probably not be wise.
Gogodawgs, et al., the term ‘federal land’ makes no difference in the scheme of things, however...
