If this passes, there will be a way to OC at city hall, county offices, & meetings. It'll require seeking permission however, to do so.

This was just one of the reasons I left Washington. I move away to Montana where open carry is a norm. I went to Town Council meetings, armed, for a year before taking a seat on the Council. I open carry during meetings and the population supports it and me. Constitutional carry too.
