    Also, does the following municipal code mean that an individual can not own a pair of "nunchukas" in their own home?

    9.02.340 Sale, manufacture, possession of certain weapons. Any person who sells, manufactures, purchases, possesses, or carries:
    1.Any device commonly known as nunchuka sticks, consisting of two (2) or more lengths of wood, metal, plastic, or similar substance connected with wire, rope, or other means; or
    2.Any device commonly known as throwing stars, which are multipointed, metal objects designed to embed upon impact from any aspect in a manner, 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;
    is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

    Looks like they are just copying various state laws here.

    For some reason it didn't put in all of the text I copied, and it's not letting my edit it. Check out the Kent Municipal Code with keyword of "Firearms Kent Commons".

    They say that they prohibit the carry of weapons, including firearms, on the property of the Kent Commons. (With the exception of those licensed to carry a concealed pistol)

    Not sure if the Commons ground is considered a convention center by Washington State Law.. and I also didn't know it was city property.

    It is considered a convention center by standard dictionary definition. That code is exactly in line with the RCW's as they can restrict the possession of firearms as long as the restriction does not apply to a CPL holder, which they have stated it does not apply to them in the code.
