I live in WA and was unable to renew my membership. I was shocked to find out why. I truly appreciate what USCCA does and stands for and hope people in other states take advantage of their services before the anti 2A folks get into their politics too.
I find it difficult to believe the State Ins. Comm, is actually this clueless as to the law.
DWI is an intentional act. Under the law if you harm someone while intoxicated or damage their property it is an intentional criminal act.
I’d like to be generous and believe the guy truly was this clueless but if he is, he needs to resign immediately and refund the state treasury everything he’s been paid since taking office.
Somewhere on here is a link to a radio interview with him on the subject… hes got an agenda and hes sticking to it, no matter what shape he has to twist himself into. It was a spectacular example of being deliberately obtuse, quite shocking to anyone with even rudimentary logic skills.
I’m just going with shamefully embarrassing performance on his part. Hes got his story and hes sticking to it, facts and logic be damned.
I listened to it, it was pathetic.
We are working hard to find a way to offer USCCA Memberships to our awesome family in Washington State, @Rodney1. As soon as we have a way, you will know!
Glad to have you in the Community!
I reside in the state of Washington also, which I’m starting to regret more and more with each passing year, because of similar issues like this where I feel my rights and liberties are being infringed upon.
I’ve got time on my hands, and I’m wondering is there anything I can personally do to let the sad excuse of an insurance commissioner in this state know that I, and others like me want our voices heard, and want sensible arguments as to why USCCA can work in every other state in the union except Washington State, New York, New Jersey (I believe). The latter two I won’t present any arguments for.
I can go up to the commissioners office and ask for their position regarding this matter, in writing. I can ask for current status, find out next steps (if they’re cooperative) in the process, and post that information here. I can do that next week, God willing. Key in all of this is knowing the right questions to ask.
Prior to doing any of this though, I would need to reference the bill, legislation, legal position, whatever they are using to impose these hardships on USCCA’s Washington State members. Could you please state that for us, so will know exactly are we up in arms against (pun intended). Also, any questions that should be asked. Thanks.
Paying them a visit, soon as I find out. I’ll be cordial. Most times, you get more bees🐝 with honey🍯, but I do want some answers from these people. This is beyond annoying.
Thanks in advance Dawn🙂
Let me see what data I can get for you on Monday, @Paul102! I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to share, but I’ll do my best for you!
Thanks Dawn, I didn’t see this response until just now. I REPOSTED a similar message again, which in light of your response here, may have been unnecessary. For that I apologize. I’m just so peeved by this whole thing and I’m just to where I really want to fight back, or see USCCA fight hard to retain the members they have in WA, and not cave to tyrants like MK in WA.
Sorry I didn’t respond on Monday, @Paul102, I had a family emergency and was unable to talk to the team as I was moderating remotely for a few days.
After talking to the team, all I am able to tell you at this point is we are working with the department to define a mutually agreeable resolution. We ask for your support and patience as we need to take the lead on this.
I know that’s not what you want to hear and I wish I had more for you, but at this point, that’s all I know.
