Gun club lawsuit isn't about the law; it's personal

Surely Kitsap County prosecutors can find a better way to spend taxpayer dollars.

I’m talking about the witch hunt being conducted against the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club.

The lawsuit filed by Proscutor Russ Hauge is outright judicial tyranny.

I believe the whole matter is a personal vendetta aimed at KRRC director Marcus Carter.

Carter has been charged three times by Hauge with firearms-related charges — and all three times the cases have been thrown out of court.

So now that the prosecutors can’t find any firearms violations, they’re trying to find something else, such as land-use violations — to use against Carter.

Is this ever going to end?

Hauge is bound and determined to find Carter guilty of something — even if he has to make it up.

Why can’t the Prosecutor’s Office put our tax dollars to work convicting real criminals instead of trying to destroy a sportsman’s club that 1,200 members enjoy?
