    In accordance with Washington Revised Code 9.41.290 Local Governments, which include: Communities, Towns, Cities, Counties, etc., are precluded from enforcing anything stricter than Washington Law concerning Firearms.

    The State of Washington reserves, for itself, the sole authority to regulate Firearms.

    The only exceptions are, pursuant to Washington Code 9.41.300, are:

    1. Local Governments may regulate Firearms within: Law Enforcement Facilities, Jails, or any other place of confinement, and Court Houses/Rooms..., but these areas shall not apply to the common areas of ingress or egress, AND

    2. Mental Health Facilities, less their common areas of ingress or egress, AND

    3. Portions of establishments that are off-limits to Persons under 21..., but not common areas of ingress or egress of such buildings, nor Restaurants that merely sell Alcohol for consumption on premises(the focus here is more geared toward BARS), AND

    4. Sterile areas of Airports, less common areas of ingress or egress and their terminals, AND

    5. Stadiums and Convention Centers, but not Persons who have Concealed Pistol License from The State of Washington, AND

    6. Local Discharge of Firearms and where they may be sold, with certain common sense exceptions that specify that these restrictions can not be any more severe than any other prohibited activity or business.

    Furthermore, Sec. 1 of this article does not apply to anyone that: 1. Has a Concealed Pistol License, and 2. Allows such Firearm to be temporaily secured during your visit, and, then, returned before your depature. Local authorities must provide a lock-box for Firearms to be stowed under Sec(s) 1 & 2, of this article.

    Other than this..., no Local Law applies..., in accordance with superior Washington State Law 9.41.290, so your Local GovernmentCAN NOTpass, or enforce,City Hall Bans, Park Bans, Library Bans, Loaded Guns in Public Places Bans, etc.

    Your screen name should be Rip Van Winkle... :?

    "A government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen..." -- Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App.181)

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    Don't let them give you too much crap, aadvark. I'm glad you are reading the RCW; more people should.

    I was going to add my sarcastic two cents as well but it's such a great part of the law here I just cant. Many do not have it as good as we have it with preemption.

    1 - he forgot something (RCW 70.108.150)

    2 - his paraphrasing is wrong. go read the actual text of the RCW. he's off on a few counts

    Hey now..., listen, this post was in response to someown else's post thatI had read elsewhere in this forum, but I could not find it again to reply[there are many posts in this forum]..., so, I just wrote a new forum that hopefully would be seen by the Person I meant to reply to. This was an effort, in good faith, to answer His question as it pertained to Washington State Firearms Preemption. He has just recently moved to Washington, soHe honestly did not know.

    That's great.... my only feedback was your summary is need of a bit of cleanup. We need to be sure when we share info, we're doing it as accurately and completely as possible...
