RCW 9.41.270 – Weapons Apparently Capable
Of Producing Bodily Harm ...
(1) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, exhibit,
display, or draw any firearm, dagger, sword, knife or other
cutting or stabbing instrument, club, or any other weapon
apparently capable of producing bodily harm, in a
, under circumstances, and at a time and place
that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that
warrants alarm for the safety of other persons
Could you then argue the simple appearance of a person minding there own business but with an exposed firearm in a holster could be in violation of this RCW if someone truly felt afraid of there life by the simple presence of it? and/or could a firearm in a holster also be consider brandishing a weapon?
