This story is confusing.  They charged him for not having a concealed weapon permit for carrying an AR-15 style rifle?!  Perhaps it was an AR-15 pistol.


"State troopers arrested a man Wednesday evening for carrying a semi-automatic weapon on board a Washington State Ferry without a proper permit.

Crew members called for help when they spotted the 39-year-old man carrying ammunition onto the vessel docked at Mukilteo. The man immediately went into a bathroom after boarding the “Tokitae.”

Trooper Kevin Fortino told KIRO Radio the man did not have a concealed carry permit for the AR-15 style rifle that troopers found with him upon his arrest in the restroom.

“There was no threatening behavior that made the crew concerned for the passengers safety … other than finding the behavior concerning,” Trooper Fortino said, adding that the man did appear to be intoxicated.

The ferry was delayed for about a half-hour so troopers could sweep the vessel and make sure the situation was under control.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon without a concealed carry permit."

WTF? I've seen people open carrying on ferries dozens of times.

Another gem of modern journalism.

I ride the ferry every day. There's a couple people that open carry fairly regularly in the Edmonds-Kingston crossing.

KING5 reported that this guy was a known instigator with previous run ins with ferry crews.

So when he boarded with an AR visibly tucked inside his coat the crew became alarmed.
