    ummm... It means you can carry a firearm in a state park. State parks can not ban firearms anyways.

    Actually it is simple: State Park=State Law. There is no law against it so it is legal. Please remember that these are family area's so you do not want to cause anyone alarm. A 45 in a holster, under your jacket is O.K. . But please no "Black Guns" slung on your back.

    It would be hard to find a law that says something is legal. Laws almost exclusively take away rights/say what is illegal. Whatever's not mentioned is generally considered legal.

    Why's it gotta be a "black" thing?

    • Since OpenCarry is legal and needs no license. He could conceal carry and still be legal according to RCW 9.41.060.
      The provisions of RCW 9.41.060 shall not apply to:

      (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


      [2005 c 453 § 3; 1998 c 253 § 2; 1996 c 295 § 5; 1995 c 392 § 1; 1994 sp.s. c 7 § 406; 1961 c 124 § 5; 1935 c 172 § 6; RRS § 2516-6.]

    looks like its all squared up guys, thanks for the responses. it is now up to him if he chooses to carry or not, though he was leaning towards it. he just was unaware if any state laws prohibited it. i had heard from others it was legal, but he wanted more than just my word about it. he is a cpl holder, so no worries there.

    Corrected.
    The apps.leg.wa.gov website was down last night when I was trying to post that and I went off some obscure website. That's what I get for not getting it from the source.
