Carrying while wearing a mask??

Was watching the US Lawshield webinar yesterday, & there was a mention that in some states, it's illegal to carry a firearm while wearing a mask. One of the states mentioned was Washington State.

I've never heard this before & am unable to find a specific citation to a law/rule saying that it's illegal to carry a firearm while wearing a mask.

Anyone know the RCW/WAC/law that states this??

See (1)(a) and (7).
A mask is armor and to use of weapons, armor, or armaments 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 or property, or in any way to avoid apprehension for a criminal act or acts is prohibited.

What is a "program attorney"?
I am not familiar with that term, and google was not helpful.
"Program Attorneys" are the ones in each state that members can call for legal assistance, including answers. Memberships are state based and you are issued a card with the name and number of the attorney to contact if needed.

to call the program attorneys means you must be a member of the Texas Law Shield association in washington state!

mem serves, this forum's member USER detail in several threads you might as well keep the 131$ in your pocket just to have TLS refer you to an attorney!

so if a TLS member, thats one expensive fone call to ask a question!
