    OC In Casinos?

    Ok, so I'm pretty sure that there is no specific RCW that actually mentions Casinos or Cardhouses, but I want to know if I'd be able to OC while visiting one. By Casino or Cardhouse, I mean one such as Clear Water and Chips that aren't "21+" casinos, so they aren't included under the rules about no firearms in 21+ areas. I'm assuming that there is no real rule and that it just depends on what the casino itself determines is their policy.

    If it does depend strictly on policy, does anyone know on any specific policies for these? I'd like to go out and feed my urge to play some cards and hang out with friends, but I don't really want to be unarmed anymore than I have to be. It's been over a year since I've visited any casino to make a donation to their dealers' paychecks.

    No state law that I am aware of... it will fall under their policies, being private property. I have never looked into it but I would assume they have a weapons ban somewhere in their policies.

    I dare you to try it in a tribal casino. I got kicked out of Emerald Queen casino becaust one of the security guards saw the clip of my knife on my pocket.

    So it's probably best to CC there or not carry?... Dang.

    The Tulalip Casino in Marysville has a prominent sign on the doors stating NO FIREARMS, including those which are carried by CPL holders.

    This topic was discussed a couple of years ago and it is apparently an extension of Washington Law, probably because to their gambling compact with the tribe(s). Since the Casino excludes those under 21 on the gaming floor and alcohol is served everywhere, it probably falls under the Liquor Control Boards prohibition on firearms.

    When the Tribes sign the Compacts to gain exclusive rights to gambling they also agreed to accept some State Regulation.

    On the non tribal casino's where there is no "under 21" prohibition it would be a matter of property owner rules.

    If one is carrying concealed, be cautious. But then again, if nobody sees it, and you don't tell, is it really there?

    According to the sign on my local tribe that it is state law that prevents any firearms in casinos. I don't have a pic of the sign or a cite to back that up. That could just be one of those misleading signs.

    Nope only the bar section is 21+, I might just talk to my great aunt about that she has a lot of pull in the tribe, being the last surviving daughter of the last chief. She don't like misleading crap.

    When the tribe decided to prosecute "western" style she forced/persuaded them to provide a defense attorney for the charged.

    as supported by RCW 9.41.300:
    If the open area of the casino is designated as 21+ by the liquor control board, then firearms are illegal. It doesn't really matter the purpose of the area.... what matters is who designates it 21+.
    Sometimes splitting hairs is exactly what we need, I wasn't very clear on my post we have had our kids at the casino for meals so I don't think they are not barred just one section next to one restaurant is 21+ considered the "bar".

    So the sign is misleading I must take after my aunt in some that misleading crap bothers me too.
