The officers typically are not going to go to that drastic of a measure, especially since they know it to be legal.Hello everyone this is my first post. I was online last night and I came across this site. I had always been told that you need a concealed weapons permit to carry a handgun in this state and that the gun had to be concealed. So when I found out about this whole OC thing I wasn't really sure.
This afternoon I called up the King County Sheriff Bothell precinct to see what they had to say about it. The woman that I spoke to told me that it is not illegal but if I was seen doing it that I would be stopped and that the police would have their weapons drawn. She also said that they are working to get the law changed.
I would like to OC but not if everytime I do the police pull up with their guns drawn. I was wondering if this is really what the police do in this area and if this is what you all have to put up with? Has anyone had an experience like this? Do many people OC in the Bothell/Kirkland area?
