This is an update of our article on the Arms Expo dated June 01, 2015.
Excerpt from Guns dot com’s June 18 2015 article:
Organizers for the Arms Expo 2015, scheduled for Yakima June 20-21 describes the event as a constitutional gun show and has made clear that the reach of the Evergreen State’s new gun law stops at the door.
“Private sales and vendors of guns, supplies, and food will be welcome. We encourage commercial vendors to refuse unconstitutional laws and background checks, and encourage patriots to support those bold vendors as well as buy from each other in defiance of lawless legislation,” reads the event’s website.
“We will be exercising what I would refer to as constitutional sales where there’s no background check of any sort,” organizer Sam Wilson told Oregon Public Radio.
The event will also offer AR-15 building classes, speakers such as Mike Vanderboegh who runs the popular Sipsey Street Irregulars website and demonstrations on, “canning, patriot networking, self-defense, how to apply liberty to your everyday life, and much more!”
Washington’s I-594 background check initiative, which was backed extensively by a core group of billionaires and national gun control groups, was approved by voters in November.
However, in the days and weeks after its passage, the measure has been derided and made the subject of protests that have drawn thousands.
