We will charge ATG members and experienced RSOs $5.00 for the shoot. We will charge $10.00 for nonmembers that want to receive some RSO training and/or just experience an enjoyable day shooting with us. Bring your tactical rifles and .22s if you want.  We will try to provide opportunity for Close Quarters Combat-style rifle shooting but please have your rifles sighted in ahead of time. Make sure to bring water, chairs, food & possibly a canopy for shade. It may be hot and you can shoot until 2:00 PM if you bring enough ammunition.

 

Tell your friends about this event and bring the family. We believe in getting the whole family involved as long as the parents are present to supervise. There is no age limit but we are expecting participants that already have knowledge of basic gun safety. We often take time to mentor new shooters. Nevertheless, this event is primarily for recruiting RSOs and planning our monthly ATG Action Shoots in order to make things safe, fun and affordable.

Criminal Assault Laws, Self-Defense & Display of a Weapon With Intent to Intimidate

Display With Intent to Intimidate. The Spokane area Law Office of Mark Knapp PLLC handles many kinds of criminal defense cases. Many present issues of self-defense. The ability to claim self-defense depends on whether there is an imminent threat of death or grave bodily harm. The issue of self-defense often arises when a weapon is displayed during a road rage incident or some altercation.

The Washington State Legislature enacted RCW 9.41.270, the Display With Intent to Intimidate law, in 1969. The statute prohibits display of a weapon in “a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons.” Read more

Federal Way Communicating Strategically via Twitter

Twitter is useful for emergency preparedness, reacting to rapidly changing events and strategic responses to various threats and opportunities. The following is a copy of my last Tweet @FirearmsLawyer:

MBRs $10 @Bunyan range Mar.23/30- Mar.23rd/30th event http://tinyurl.com/ArmedDefenseOrg
#ArmedDefense #FederalWay #NRA #shootonthemove #SOTM

Please note that the message above is an example of a Tweet that could help us with our problem of telling ADTA MBRs about a change in the upcoming events schedule. Federal Way and surrounding communities can also use it to coordinate emergency response efforts or churches can use it to organize an evangelistic mission. I know the Tweet seems almost like code at first glance (or gibberish) but it has to be 140 characters or less. Read more
