At the end of the rally, gun owners burned their concealed weapons permits and  signed a petition vowing to refuse to follow the new gun control law.  The petition ended with the text, “We pledge our blood. We will not comply.”

This certainly isn’t the first large scale act of civil disobedience by gun owners in defiance of gun laws. Earlier this year in Connecticut hundreds of thousands of gun owners refused to send in their gun registration forms, also becoming felons. Similar numbers of gun owners in New Yorke have also refused to send in their registration paperwork and some even video taped themselves burning the forms.

Fed up with the passage of an 18½-page incoherent, rambling, unconstitutional gun control initiative that was bankrolled by billionaires, gun owners across Washington state held the largest felony civil disobedience rally in the nation’s history, brazenly titled “I Will Not Comply.” No one was hurt and no stores were looted. Between 1,000 and 3,000 lawful gun owners showed up openly armed at the state capitol in Olympia, Wash., on Saturday to defy the newly passed gun control law, I-594.

Organizer Gavin Seim made the extraordinary nature of the rally very clear, “This isn’t just a protest. We are here to openly violate the law.” Attendees publicly transferred their guns to each other in violation of I-591’s background check provisions, and some even bought and sold guns just a few feet away from law enforcement. A fire pit blazed throughout the rally, and at the conclusion, gun owners lined up to burn their concealed weapons permits. A petition was circulated affirming gun owners’ refusal to follow I-594, which ended with, “We pledge our blood. We will not comply.”

As the RSVPs in advance of the rally grew to over 6,000, the police – most who probably detest I-594 – decided not to enforce the law. The Washington State Patrol announced there would be no arrests for exchanging guns – not even for selling guns. Seim refused to obtain a permit to hold the rally, citing the right of people to peaceably assemble.

The rally could not be dismissed as fringe elements. Several lawmakers and lawmen spoke, including former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack of Arizona, Washington State Rep. Elizabeth Scott (R-Monroe) and Rep. Graham Hunt (R-Orting), who sported an AR-15 during his speech. Mack advised gun owners engaging in civil disobedience to “put your sheriff next to you to keep it peaceful.” Scott defiantly explained in her speech, “I will not comply with I-594 because it is unconstitutional, unenforceable and unjust. It is impossible to enforce this law unless there is a police officer on every back porch and in every living room. So it will be enforced selectively.” She noted that Founding Father Alexander Hamilton said any law that violates the Constitution is not valid, and there is a moral obligation to disobey unjust laws.

Seim, a political activist and congressional candidate, wrote on his website, “Today I become an OUTLAW! Arrest me! I will NOT comply.” He led the rally peacefully, and at one point asked everyone attending to kneel with him in prayer. As he led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance, he stressed, “I am not pledging obedience to the government, it is to the Republic. We don’t ask for our rights, and we don’t negotiate for our rights. We will take America back.”

Another speaker explained what was happening this way, “We no longer consent nor comply.” Mike Vanderboegh, whose Three Percenter movement is modeled after the three percent of the colonists who fought in the American War of Independence, said that those at the rally are the resistance behind enemy lines. The resistance is also taking place in a handful of other states with strict gun control laws, where patriots are now smuggling in weapons illegally. Vanderboegh told attendees, “This is the tyranny the Founding Fathers warned us about. Tyranny can be voted into existence by a majority. We will not fire the first shot, but if need be, we will fire the last.”

Gun control zealots have finally gone too far. Gun owners are now discovering that the police in New York are using gun control laws to confiscate guns from family members within days after their owners pass away. Hundreds of thousands of gun owners in Connecticut and New York who failed to register their AR-15s earlier this year are now felons. Requiring the registration of guns or requiring background checks, as I-594 does, allows the government to compile a list of gun owners, which can be used later for confiscation.

 If guns cause crime, then why wasn’t there a single mishap, considering there were 1,000 or so guns present and hundreds of violations of felony law taking place? Tellingly, Washington State Trooper Guy Gill predicted beforehand, “”Most of these folks are responsible gun owners. We probably will not have an issue.” The truth is, the state capitol was probably the safest place in the state last Saturday.

Patriots have had enough. The Second Amendment is gradually being eroded, state by state, and gun owners are not going to lie down and give up their arms. A handful of billionaires and elitists in blue cities like Seattle do not respect the Constitution nor represent the vast majority of Americans. Another rally in Olympia is planned for January 15, and another one in Spokane on December 20. The Second Amendment Foundation, headquartered in Bellevue, intends to sue the state over I-594, and will be lobbying the legislature to get the law changed or repealed. Washington state is now ground zero for patriotic gun owners resisting tyranny, which is at a tipping point since law enforcement does not intend to enforce I-594. What happens next?

  1. The thing i find most interesting is that those that openly rebel against the government do not consider the fact that they most likely will end up in court. The next fact is that very few people have any idea on how to defend themselves in court and the arguments (Constitutional) that they wish to make will fall on deaf ears once they get an attorney as an attorney cannot challenge the jurisdiction of the court and that is everything. They never have any jurisdiction but almost no one can prove that or knows how to prove that. They fail to understand how to proceed and to their own detriment suffer because of it. If you are going to engage in open rebellion against the authority of those tryannical despots learn the law and learn how to establish you status first.

  2. Andy Jackson,

    ~ending up in ‘court’ is my main objective –as a claimant. It’s as a ‘defendant’ when they don’t want me there –no ‘day in court’ just ‘civil asset forfeiture.’

    Tomorrow or Tuesday I’m filing for Friday’s meeting, what I gave copies of to the Supes. (BARs have no standing in court) –telling them no more mail from their (18) county counsel, and no more telephone calls. Ha. Didn’t stop ‘em. Looks like now we go International Court, as using the U.S. Post Office to coerce me (any of us) into joining their fraud, is a big No No. I don’t open their huge envelopes of Satanic slave-speak. It’s not mandatory to communicate with the godless. They’re right-brain deficient as far as I can tell. Cuz, I’m not nice at all on the telephone and worse in the one letter I sent initially as a reply. That just added to the mailings.

    They’ll be in ‘court’ wearing their greasy suits, grinning and preening. Me, I’ll be draped in the first flag made for the tea tax rebellion. Stripes, horizontal –heaven to earth, and holding my Mom’s age-old Bible. Should any evil approach me, I’ll drop to my knees and go into prayer – freedom of religion, nothing they can do. Meanwhile, should the judgie wudgie permit the trespassers in my presence before a common law proceeding, she’s aiding and abetting. I’ll ask her. Gets better. This is the ‘presiding judge’ that I dis-qualified March 11 in another litigation. She had no choice but to admit, “I do not have jurisdiction.” THEN – yesterday, here comes a ‘Dismissed w/Prejudice!!’ WTF? That case ended –I ended it.

    Should be interesting.
