It's the federal level that's disappointing.

Bravo Mayor Dudley!

The Mayor

Really is "Dudley do-Right"!



The citizens of Oak Harbor, WA can be proud. I just sent the mayor an email commending his actions. Here's his email: mayor@oakharbor.org

Somebody in Washington sign thsi guy up to run for another office when he's done with Mayor!

Mayor for Prez

Wasn't there a Presidential candidate (recently) from the state of Alaska who was a former mayor?
I support Mr. Dudley for President 2016...Why NOT?
This is what America was founded on, the principle that anyone can be president...We need many more Mr. Dudley types at all levels of government.

Why not support him for sheriff instead

he can get a heck of a lot more done as a sheriff.


That mayor is a good man, you can see it in his demeanor.
That is a good man, and this is a DYNAMITE find.
Thank You

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Liberty Award

Somebody please give the "Liberty Award" to Mr. Dudley.
I wish we had more people in Government with your attitude Mr. Dudley.
To the Chicken Poop "Nazi" councilmen who left the premises, please turn in your resignations as soon as possible.
Now I know what a Nazi looks like...A COWARD.
Why did you NOT support this guy who fought for your freedoms?
Why did you swear to "uphold" the constitution, when those were empty promises, as evident by your lack of support for this citizen who exercised his rights.
To the Veteran who open carried into the meeting, I salute you for being a real American...Not like the chicken poop councilmen who were too afraid.
They are afraid because they are morally bankrupt.
The righteous are bold as a lion, the wicked flee when no one pursues.

What happened to all the

What happened to all the people and rows of chairs in just 4 minutes? Did everyone run out of the room with the councilman and take the chairs with them? Compare the 2:00 minute mark with the 6:05 mark. Just an observation,not a conspiracy...yet :) Kudos to the mayor and the rest of the council members that voted the motion down!

I thought the exact same thing...

It looked to me like the three rows of people all left pretty quickly, until I found this link in the earlier comments. Public Comment video at oakharbor.org

The original video is 41:28 long. The discussion was much more in depth and this shows the people didn't all run out at the mention of a cc in the room.

Someone commented here, I think it was, that the meeting had run over and people had to go, putting up their chairs as they left. (Sorry, I was unable to locate the comment again, since there are quite a few more now. :)

edited-links weren't working

All of the chicken poop people

ran away using their chairs as shields from the hail of bullets they were brainwashed to expect.



it's like a psychosis disease (conspiracy theory here) maybe they actually inject some kind of "fear of guns" with the vaccinations.


I wondered the same. I think the video was missing a portion though.

Send to your Council

I had to email this to every council person and the mayor in Kirkland WA with a note: "Mayor McBride this mayor is doing the right thing to keep his citizens safe, I do hope you will follow his example."

I encourage everyone in WA state to send this to their Mayor, especially people in Seattle.

Thank you,

...why is that an armed sheriff's deputy (or police officer) in the room doesn't make you feel similarly uncomfortable?


because he knows they get their salary from him and they feel safe that he wont bite the hand the feeds him. A regular Joe armed who he doesn't give a salary to but rather oppresses him and steals from is a whole different story.

Heavy chit

you just described our entire society.

What arrogant audacity

treating a disabled vet that way! That town should can that jerk on the spot! I get the impression that most of the other council members don't like him either.


Why would they need to fire him?

Sounds to me like he's gone for good already. ...because the armed citizen will likely keep going back and to save face, the councilman will have to keep excusing himself!

Yup good point.

Judgement by Default.

that is the way to influence voting

This veteran should come and stay during votes so this leftist Councilman had to run away every time he see him. By staying he would agree that he is being theatrical.

Thank you

Mayor Dudley your a true patriot. The speech you gave was exactly correct. You should run for President.

dave anderson

Everybody's gotta run for president.

Stop will you! The president cannot save you. Even President Ron Paul could not have saved you... Start focusing on your own back yard. Organize... educate your local sheriff. Everytime on this LIBERTARIAN site I see someone all starry eyed looking for just the RIGHT guy/gal to run for president I go "Do these people even know what being libertarian is all about?"

#1 would probably be learning how to operate your government.

By reading the owner's manual.

The Constitution for the United States of America (not we the people).

He would make a great Governor for WA state:)

Sent an email

thanking the mayor, the four council members and of course the Vet.

Phenomenal video

Oak Harbor is just about 45 mins from my house :)
I love seeing this type of Patriotism in the act. That other bonehed can take a hike, and he did. Hahaha


Stop for a moment and think about how much that jack booted (IMO) councilman would of LOVED to rake Mr. 2nd over the (il-legal(?) hot coals just then.

Thanks for standing with him Mr. Mayor. We are taking ground. Everything they are doing keeps coming back on them.
