You are only assuming it was 6 minutes later.
When council member Campbell raised his hand, he wasn't waving to the departing member, but was raising his hand to be heard, and states that he'd
like to make a comment. At that point there's a lapse in footage, and it picks up again with Mayor Dudley speaking.
I'll go out on a limb here, and assume that the mayor doesn't normally keep the framed oath laying face up on his workspace, so any time it took to
retrieve it also isn't shown.
It makes more sense, to me, that where it picks up is actually later on when most business has already been conducted, and is backed up by the motion
to adjourn at the end.
Assuming the attendees scattered at the mention of a gun is a bit ignorant, although some, here, would prefer you thought that.
I, and others, (having lived in Washington for 10 years, with many friends from Oak Harbor) applaud the common sense approach in which the Mayor and
other council members conducted themselves.
