Effective date -- 2007 c 2: "This act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety, or support of the state government and its existing public institutions, and takes effect immediately [February 2, 2007]." [2007 c 2 § 2.]

LONGVIEW, Wash. -- "Longview police found a woman standing in front of a U.S. Bank branch.

Police say they held 27-year-old Lauren K. Smith at gunpoint until she agreed to drop the weapon.

Smith told police that she had been on her way to pawn the shotgun at a pawn shop shortly before 5 p.m. on Friday when her car broke down. She says she then began walking up the street with the weapon.

Smith was cited for disorderly conduct, which carries a $250 fine, and released. The shotgun was handed over to one of Smith's relatives."

Yes, the cossacks are at it again. Shaking with fear, they drew down on a woman who was not breaking the law, just because they can.
