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?

Hello Judith. After what's happened since the midterm elections, I can honestly say that I have a very low opinion of our elected officials. In fact, I believe that they are all just playing us! Personally, I think that we should fire the whole damned bunch of them and start over from scratch. Nothing is going to change until we force that change. This government no longer represents the American People, it only represents itself! As for John Boehner, I've sent him several emails strongly recommending that he resigns. Of course, whatever I say will have little to no impact on him or, anyother politicians that I contact. They really don't care about what the American People think or say, "it's their way or the highway"! God Bless and I wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas. Stay Well, Tom S.
TEXAS, WE WILL NOT COMPLY!

Time has come to go on offensive statis against Liberal unconstitutionality::::::
Hello Patricia. History shows that at times Americans are slow to react. However, once we do, God help our enemies! In our current situation, we have got to keep in mind that Obama is looking for any excuse to declare Martial Law. I believe that he (Obama) knows that if he does so, it will result in another Civil War, which I don't think that he's ready for, YET. He has stirred up the blacks, invited illegals to invade America and is bringing more Muslims to the States. I firmly believe that all these things are part of his master plan to destroy America! Many American Patriots have drawn the line and dare Obama to cross it and I'm certain that sometime in the very near future that's exactly what he'll do. However, if you've noticed we are being very careful not to provoke the fight. If we hope to win, we've got to make Obama make the first move across that line. Once he does, we will have even more reason to remove him from power! God Bless and I hope that you and yours have a Very Merry Christmas.....
Thomas my friend and all members here ; my point : our Land is not a little island the size of Sicily or Sardinia or Austria ..etc ...this is a very large country ; by declaring Martial Law what is he going to accomplish .???? How can he control America .? ? . All he can control his cities like Dallas or Houston .
There is no man power or army to control this huge land . Yes indeed , water , gas, electricity , food ....will come to a stop ; crime and criminals will run uncontrolled ; patriots will surge and fight back ; Governors of states like Texas will give orders that will not comply with zero ....and you all can figure out the rest ......
zero knows he can`t have complete control , he would have done it , he had many opportunities ; he never moved a finger . All he can do is financially collapse this Nation but at that point the entire planet will collapse . At that point all we have to do is : China , the $ is 0 ( no value ) , therefore 0 = 0 and I do not owe you nothing . We will start over again . My point may not be the best answer but I believe there is a bit of truth on what I said here .
Hello again Raffaele. I believe that Obama is using the blacks, illegals and Muslims to help him destroy America. That would certainly explain why he encouraged the blacks to demonstrate, left our Southern Border wide open and is bringing more Muslims into the US. I also believe that czar Obama would like nothing better than to see America torn apart by a race war or another Civil War. The fact that he is purging our military is another indication that he has something diabolical in the works. This man (Obama) is a liar and a fraud and we can't trust anything he says or does. There's a very old saying that I thoroughly believe, "Beware of the Dumb Fox"! I think that everything that Obama has done since 2008 is part of a very well thought out master plan....Tom
The snowball has started rolling. It is going to get bigger and bigger as it rolls. Next, we do the same thing at the white house and get Obama OUT........ arrested!!!!!!!!
Hello "J". The battle for America has already started and American Patriots all over the country are standing up to be counted. I am one of them! I'm what Texans call a "damned yankee", I came to Texas back in 1975 and never left. I don't care what people call me, I love Texas and I don't ever plan on leaving! The "snowball" that you refer to is a very slow moving one and I wish I could speed it up! I too, want to see Obama arrested and charged with high treason and hanged on the nearest tree! I wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas! God Bless, Tom S.
