    So someone was trying to tell me that city law over rules state law on OC anyone know anything about this? I always believed that state always over ruled city no matter what.

    Please contribute to this and set me straight.

    Jarhead, your belief is correct:
    RCW 9.41.290 State Premption:
    The state of Washington hereby fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state, including the registration, licensing, possession, purchase, sale, acquisition, transfer, discharge, and transportation of firearms, or any other element relating to firearms or parts thereof, including ammunition and reloader components. Cities, towns, and counties or other municipalities may enact only those laws and ordinances relating to firearms that are specifically authorized by state law, as in RCW 9.41.300, and are consistent with this chapter. Such local ordinances shall have the same penalty as provided for by state law. Local laws and ordinances that are inconsistent with, more restrictive than, or exceed the requirements of state law shall not be enacted and are preempted and repealed, regardless of the nature of the code, charter, or home rule status of such city, town, county, or municipality.
    "fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state," So no city within Washington State can circumvent that. Period.

    IANAL

    Well, a cloud city tethered within, but due to winds is physically outside the boundaries of the state, could regulate the carry and ownership of firearms. The legislators had no foresight.

    I'm pretty sure that Lando Calrissian would be sympathetic to OC needs with friends like Han Solo.
