    i asked her if it would be legal to lock my pistol in the case it came in, Unloaded, when i am asked not to open carry at a certain location, as to while im visiting your city i will not have my own vehical to lock my weapon in.

    She informed me that that was illegal and i could not do that,

    But good luck with open carry, she supports it...

    just doesnt know how well things are gunna go when the "libs" call the police to report a MWAG

    Carrying an unloaded pistol isn't illegal. Of course, removing a loaded gun from its holster and emptying it to put it in the case might be construed as "warranting alarm". Your best bet if someone says "you can't OC in here, it's our policy" is to just leave and not give them your business.

    Asking a police officer for help on what the law is, is like asking an old lady at church what a passage in the bible means. Both are open to personal interpretation and rarely are the truth.

    Read the law, make your own intelligent decision and if you still have questions ask here for help. If you still have questions, consult a lawyer. Never take someone else's advice or two cents for granted, they're usually wrong.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Um...No. She is incorrect. There is a clear and specific exception to carrying a pistol concealed in Washington state without a permit, and its located here in RCW 9.41.060.

    The "case" doesn't even have to be locked!

    RCW 9.41.060 Exceptions to restrictions on carrying firearms.

    http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9.41.060

    The provisions of RCW 9.41.050 shall not apply to:

    (1) Marshals, sheriffs, prison or jail wardens or their deputies, or other law enforcement officers of this state or another state;

    (2) Members of the armed forces of the United States or of the national guard or organized reserves, when on duty;

    (3) Officers or employees of the United States duly authorized to carry a concealed pistol;

    (4) Any person engaged in the business of manufacturing, repairing, or dealing in firearms, or the agent or representative of the person, if possessing, using, or carrying a pistol in the usual or ordinary course of the business;

    (5) Regularly enrolled members of any organization duly authorized to purchase or receive pistols from the United States or from this state;

    (6) Regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for the purpose of target shooting, when those members are at or are going to or from their places of target practice;

    (7) Regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for the purpose of modern and antique firearm collecting, when those members are at or are going to or from their collector's gun shows and exhibits;

    (8) Any person engaging in a lawful outdoor recreational activity such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, or horseback riding, only if, considering all of the attendant circumstances, including but not limited to whether the person has a valid hunting or fishing license, it is reasonable to conclude that the person is participating in lawful outdoor activities or is traveling to or from a legitimate outdoor recreation area;


    (9) Any person while carrying a pistol unloaded and in a closed opaque case or secure wrapper; or

    (10) Law enforcement officers retired for service or physical disabilities, except for those law enforcement officers retired because of mental or stress-related disabilities. This subsection applies only to a retired officer who has: (a) Obtained documentation from a law enforcement agency within Washington state from which he or she retired that is signed by the agency's chief law enforcement officer and that states that the retired officer was retired for service or physical disability; and (b) not been convicted or found not guilty by reason of insanity of a crime making him or her ineligible for a concealed pistol license.

    To add to FMCDH, yes the case it came in should suffice as all of them I have ever seen are opaque.
