Full disclosure would have mentioned that the GRPC is one of Alan Gottlieb's pet projects. Alan Gottlieb is the head of SAF and CCRKBA as well as a convicted felon who spent a year and a half in Federal prison for tax evasion and embezzlement. Alan Gottlieb is also a prominent opponent of Open Carry. The SAF was a co-plaintiff, along with CalGuns.nuts, in Richards v. Prieto, the California concealed carry case which was consolidated with the concealed carry case, Peruta v. San Diego for en banc oral arguments. Both the SAF/CalGuns.nuts attorney, Alan Gura, and the NRA/CRPA attorney, Paul Clement, argued before the en banc panel that the Heller decision said that states can ban Open Carry in favor of concealed carry.
Indeed, it was the SAF lawyer Alan Gura who invented that Big Lie, the NRA lawyers stole that argument from him.
In years past, Gottlieb has held his GRPC in places like Chicago where Open Carry is banned.
If you do decide to go to the GRPC, make sure you keep your handgun well hidden in your purse or beneath your skirt.
I spent over 20 years in Gottlieb's neck of the woods.
WA state use to have a robust Gun culture.
I was a WAC member for years. Never joined
CCRKBA because the office was in the most expensive part
of Bellevue WA. I wasn't going to pay for that office.
Gottlieb always seemed to me to be a used
car salesman type. The WA state Democrats
pulled strings and he got caught doing what so
many Democrats do and get away with.
I'm a NRA life member( and pissed at them wasting our money
on a bloated overpaid administration) and
GOA. I considered the local organizations,
but you don't even think we exist on the big island,
so I'll just write useless letters to pols that Oahu elects.
