    I think the article said he was cited, then released. Didn't sound like the firearm was confiscated or that he was taken into custody.

    Carry the gun on your hip with no ammo or clip and someone will steal it from you.

    Two items to add.

    First: To clarify one point, Vancouver is in Clark County. Swatspyder posted the King County training bulletin because it has the best explanation of the law. There are no known Clark County or Vancouver training bulletins.

    Second: According to his wife, the plaintiffs firearm was confiscated.

    The law needs to be challenged as 'vague'. Then overturned as not legally sufficient. This is just plain stupid.

    I started a thread about hits in another section of the forum. The mods made me see the error of my ways.

    Anyhow, his wife says his gun was confiscated. Scroll down the page about halfway.

    Apparently the Vancouver and\or Camas (a small town just east of Vancouver) cops have some problems with OCing. Read what this poor guy is going through.

    Hopefully the Albertsons case won't end up like the case above and the cops learn a thing or two. If not, the planned OC event in Vancouver should at least get someone in the department looking into training for the cops.

    So many people in positions of supporting and defending the citizens, HIRED by the citizens to help keep things safe, and yet upstanding people going about their business cannot be safe in doing so, getting rousted on technicalities while not threatening or harming anyone. All because one person made a "Man with a Gun!" call. It's ridiculous.

    Once it's clear that the person is not a raving lunatic or criminal bent on putting the fear into people, it should be far easier to simply educate the fraidy cat in the legality and reasonableness of the carrying of defensive firearms. It is NOT a criminal act. It should not be treated as such. Even if there are still fraidy cats around who simply won't understand it's perfectly legal and appropriate. Why jump on the heads of upstanding people? Why not educate the ignorant?

    How come the person who called 911 wasn't ticketed for abusing the 9-1-1 system?

    And what is this so-called "3 -step rule" and where is that documented. If anyone in FL can carry a loaded firearm in a "closed container," specificly defined as a closed glovebox or console compartment, where are the "required" 3 steps?

    Another urban myth?

    Vancouver PD is also the same department that told someone that having a scanner in their car was illegal (it's not) and someone else that their gun must be on their person while driving (not true)...

    It has been reported that they confiscated his gun. They did not confiscate his wife's gun, because her jacket was covering hers. They both have Washington CPLs.

    The NRA officially does not support open carry.
