    I am wondering if anyone has any imput on this subject. I am not sure if the 1000 foot rule applies if you are just passing by. Thanks

    The 1000-foot Gun Free School Zone Act is a Federal law, so not reflected in RCW Chapter 9. The law generally prohibits weapons within 1000 feet of any school, however there are several exemptions to the prohibition including having a firearm permit issued by the state where the school is sited.

    If you have a CPL and OC through a school zone (a CPL is required for vehicle carry in this state), you are in compliance with Federal law. The reason Washington statute can allow you to have your handgun with you when you pick up your child is because of the CPL exemption in the Gun Free School Zone Act.

    And you have to have a CPL for riding a motorcycle, so you are in the clear, can even pick up your kids if you want.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
