This is an example of what aroused citizens of a community can accomplish. It is a small victory, as it only pertains to the carrying of guns in public parks and at City Council meetings, but it is a victory, nevertheless. - Shorty Dawkins

OAK HARBOR, Wash. — Pro gun activists poured into Oak Harbor City Hall Tuesday night to speak out against a councilman who tried to ban guns from city meetings.
It was standing room only inside council chambers, and many attendees proudly announced they were carrying weapons. The men and women turned out to tell the council the city’s gun ban in local parks is illegal and the attempt to ban guns at City Hall is out of line.
After hearing from residents on both sides of the issue, the council concentrated its focus on the rule of law. State law specifically blocks cities from banning guns, and Second Amendment supporters have already threatened to sue.
With those facts in mind, the council voted to lift the ban.
