An island County citizen has a target practice set up on his property for he and a few of his friends to use practicing to improve their gun skills
Commissioner Homola is on a crusade to stop this
She directed the Sheriff to investigate it for code violations …He did and the property owner was totally within the laws
That didn’t change Homola’s mind; like Don Quixote she has created one more need for her tilting at windmills
Hence Commissioner Emerson’s following press release:
Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson offers Resolution on
During a scheduled discussion on Firearms in County parks on Wednesday, Commissioner Kelly Emerson offered prepared language that she said would bring Island County current with State law.
All three commissioners had received a message from a constituent expressing their concern about Island County not being compliant with RCW 9.41.290, regarding the possession of firearms on County property.
Commissioner Emerson forwarded the message on to staff almost immediately, asking that it be scheduled for discussion.
“The right to bear arms is a fundamental right of this great nation and is heavily protected,” Emerson states. “When it was brought to my attention we are more restrictive than State law allows, I had to push for change.”
In her usual unconventional manner, Emerson distributed a proposed resolution for the ordinance language at the workshop on Wednesday. “There is no sense in delaying this any further,” says Emerson. “The safety of our citizens is paramount.”
