2nd Amendment Showdown at Oak Harbor, WA City Council

Oak Harbor Stands Up for the Constitution and 2nd Amendment. Two Council Members Walk Out

Oak Harbor

The town of Oak Harbor, WA is situated on the northern end of Whidbey Island on Puget Sound.  It is the nearest town to the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and provides services and support to the military families who live in the town and on the base nearby.  It’s nice to see that except for the two members who stomped out when the vote did not go their way, the rest of the council takes their oath of office seriously!

  1. As a Conceal Carry Washingtonian, of three decades–I second that (E)motion!
    The Beast knows that he is defeated, if he fails to dis-arm the American People.
    Eventually, instead of ‘Cash For Clunkers’, it will be ‘Jobs For Guns'; and eventually ‘Food For Guns’.

  2. Kudos to Mayor Dudley!

  3. A little island of sanity in all of western Washington!

  4. We need Mayor Dudley’s all across America, You shine Mayor Dudley!

  5. Who ever “those” councilpersons were, they should vacate their office because they have “broke” their oath of office!

    • Perhaps the citizens of the town should discuss this with their mayor? And in addition to this, perhaps we should all show them we are behind them in doing so. Would any militia attack a subject without sufficient force? No, they would mass their numbers until they had enough force adequate to defeat said subject, the same would apply to any political stance as well. Imagine, the citizens of one town marching to a council meeting with the force of a nation behind them to demand the implementation of constitutional rights. Could this be accomplished through signed petitions to the town and its mayor from citizens across the nation, or would it take a show of physical presence? Is it constitutional for a nation to back a jurisdiction where one doesnt live?

      • Ben, if you watched the video to completion, you would see the mayor and city attorney affirm their oath of office to stand with the federal and state constitutions to protect this veteran’s legal right to bear arms. The two oathbreaking dissenters stormed out when their unconstitutional motion was defeated by the majority vote of the City Council.

        • I did watch the video, and my point was to talk to the mayor who upholds the constitution in regards to the removal of the two council members who walked out as clem dog mentioned. Sorry, i should have clarified that in my post but i felt that would be clearly conveyed as a continuation to his specific topic as it was posted as a reply. For the record, I offer a standing ovation to the mayor and the rest of the council for upholding their oath of office in defense of the constitution, and offer any means of support that I can give them and anyone else who will do the same. My apologies for any misunderstanding on my behalf.

          • No offense taken, Ben. The Reagan Wing website is looking into the legal issues regarding the oath of office in their story “Oath Breaker Report: Oak Harbor”

            • Thank you lowtechgrannie, i did visit the site and was heartened by the turn out of people who assembled with their second amendment instruments and effectively overturned the ban on the parks and marina, however, i was disheartened by the fact that “The council did not call for the resignation of fellow member Almberg, which a few people had called for”. Perhaps they did not follow protocol and submit the request via typewritten charge pursuant to sections 33 and 34 of article 1 of the constitution? Nice post by the way, and thank you for your diligent work following this story, I salute you.

  6. O.M.G., a politician that takes the oath of office seriously . That’s about as rare as seeing a gov’t paid employee actually breaking a sweat on the job . As far as that pompous p.o.s. leaving the meeting because the vote didn’t go his way , he needs to go where other p’s.o.s. go . They get flushed down the toilet .
