Open-carry gun activists plan to visit Green Lake this weekend

According to Dave Workman, who writes for the Seattle Gun Rights Examiner, a group of open-carry gun activists is planning to visit Green Lake Park on Saturday afternoon around noon, and perhaps on Sunday as well (August 28 and 29, 2011).

The visit is reportedly being planned in the wake of a controversial police response to a “person with a gun” dispatch to the park last Sunday.

From the Seattle Gun Rights Examiner:

Alarmed by an encounter involving a longtime open carry activist and Seattle police at Green Lake last weekend, some open carry activists are planning to visit Green Lake Saturday around noon, and others tell this column they may walk around Green Lake on Sunday.

Why? After a week of discussion on the Open Carry forum, one might think this controversy had run its course and that it is time to move on. It’s caused a good discussion on the Defensive Carry forum.

The incident has taken on something of a life of its own.

More information is available on the Seattle Gun Rights Examiner.
