<< in rural Washington State, every county
but I beleive King, Thurston, Pierce, and Snohomish have passed in the
past three years county ordinances requiring every homeowner to posess a
gun and ammunition. >>

No kidding? Not suprised...also not suprised I never heard about over the
National media...I did hear that there was a town in Georgia that did
something similar years ago...with similar results..

Also heard about a study that indicated that states with "right to carry"
laws had rapidly declineing violence....the predators just couldn't see
attacking someone who "Might" be armed....

Maybe that's the reason for the increase in violence against tourists in
Florida a few years ago...Florida had recently passed a right to carry
bill...Florida residents then became too risky a tourists (mostly
from Yankee states with restrictive gun laws) were a much safer target.
