I WILL NOT COMPLY RALLY IN OLYMPIA  December 13th11:00am – 1:00pm
WA State Capital, Gateway Park. 416 Sid Snyder Ave SW Olympia
According to the Facebook Event Page, 6300 people have already signed up to attend this civil disobedience event. According to the organizer, Gavin Seim: On Nov 4th 2014 a new gun law was passed in Washington that will make as much as handing a friend your gun a felony. We will not tolerate this law and I am going to do what I said I would do in my video. We’re not waiting for politicians, judges or lawyers. Our birthright is NOT to be touched. We call on our Sheriffs, local representatives and legislators to stand with us and uphold their oaths. The Constitution is the supreme law and our God given rights are NOT open for negotiation. We choose to uphold the law as peacefully and principled as possible, but it will be upheld. We will buy and sell guns from whom we please, we will not submit to background checks, we will not give up our rights, WE WILL NOT Comply. On Dec 13th we will hold our first rally at the capital, openly exchange guns, unveil and plan to break apart the entire legislation and violate i594 in every possible way. Because ALL law that violates the Constitution is not law, it is VOID!

Opportunities to Serve Your Community

We generally post new Clark County advisory committees position openings, but because of the new year there are a lot of opportunities right now.  Please go to this page which lists all the boards & committees, Current Vacancies (box on the right side) and Recent Appointees (also on the right side).  We’d sure like to see your name among the appointees.  Take a look at the opportunities to see where you are needed. 

Each of the eight cities in Clark County have opportunities to serve.  You can find links to all the city websites here.  Click on the city name to go to their website where you can search for opportunities.
