160 Taxpayers

Showed up at  town council meeting in Oak Harbor WA just a couple of days ago....


Last month one of their council members tried to have a veteran expelled from the council meeting.
The underlying issue and the thing that prompted the council Person (a mr. Almberg)  to make such a public display of asshattery ... was a ban on firearms in selected areas of the municipality.

The entirely illegal ban was getting this Almberg guy a lot of contempt from the veteran and others in the public meeting.  Of course those typically thin skinned liberals who so enjoy lording over others from their self appointed pinacles of moral superiority... just hate to get the disrespect they so richly deserve.
Apparently ... last month's meeting ended with nothing being done about either the offending statute or the offensive behaviour of the sanctimonious Member.

So this month .... they came the meeting to show support for veteran Lucas Yonkman who Councilmember Almberg tried to have kicked out of City Hall last month, including Joe Hawkins who openly mocked him. "Mr. Almberg I just want you to know that I have a concealed ham sandwich right here I don't want you to get up and walk away," he chuckled. 

Most attended the meeting to oppose the city's ban on guns in parks and the marina. (The Second Amendment Foundation had threatened to sue if the ordinance wasn't overturned.) 

The city council eventually voted to overturn the ban, which the interim city attorney had told the members was unconstitutional. The council did not call for the resignation of fellow member Almberg, which a few people had called for.
After the meeting, he said he hopes the city can move past this and get onto more important business. 

Which would be exactly what the town council should have been doing in the first place!

The other interesing thing about this episode of public resistance to government over reaching and uncalled for meddling .... that was 160 "mostly armed" citizens lawfully putting those meddling politicians and bureaucrats in their proper place. Not ONE SHOT was fired or threatened.
