Since I received my CPL, I have been told when concealing it, it can not be visible. When open carrying it, I was told that it has to have atleast three points of view. Is this true, and is it state wide? I am asking because, today I was harrassed by an officer in Cheney, WA and he told me that I was not allowed to "open carry" I argued with him for about 5 min, and to prevent cuffs, I put the jacket over the gun (as he asked). I am just checking my facts, so when I run into him again I can stand my ground...maybe get arrested ...only to turn around and walk out of the station (so I hope)Thanks in advance for your help.
2. There is no 'three points of view' law, he's making &%$ up (or repeating #%^ someone else made up).
3. State law preempts all city/county ordinances. Even if they do have a law on the books, its not enforceable.
4. If they did arrest you, they're in DEEP trouble.
