    After reading this again, this sounds like long guns, not hand guns...

    Loaded long guns are a no-no. This is a fish and game law, nothing really to do with the "dangerous weapons" statutes. but you will still get in trouble for haing a loaded longarm in the car, permit or no.

    There is also an AG's opinion that the weapon can be off the persons body and still be legal. I have a hard copy of it someplace.

    You can have loaded mags for a long gun, just not inserted into the weapon. This is a recent law (1990s) and needs to be overturned for at minimum, CCW people

    There is ZERO reason to tell CCW people what type of gun they can carry for self defense. They, as free people are best qualified to know these things, not government

    I have a friend that always tells people that FEDERAL law says you can't transport long guns and ammo in the vehicle ,together.
    I kinda may do it anyway but I haven't searched it to be sure.
    Anyone have a link to say yes or no?

    Love the title as there are many on here.

    Also includes psychologists, constitutional law, military law, scholars, and my favorite, economists.

    One day I am sure we will see a thread that says "help, I am being prosecuted"

    This is why I wrote WASHINGTON STATE GUN RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES (now in its 15th printing), and why some cops and attorneys use it as a reference guide.

    If you want one, you can get a copy of that from the local sheriff when you apply for your CPL here. My mom got a copy from her CPL renewal from a couple of weeks ago. Thanks Dave!

    You are not reading all of it. RCW 9.41.050

    (1)(a) Except in the person's place of abode or fixed place of business, a person shall not carry a pistol concealed on his or her person without a license to carry a concealed pistol.

    (2)(a) A person shall not carry or place a loaded pistol in any vehicle unless the person has a license to carry a concealed pistol and:

    It is not an exemption...it that law just does not apply.

    The exemptions are in RCW 9.41.060

    Oh, one other thing...remember...it is a concealed PISTOL license...does not apply to long guns.

    Why limit it to CCW. Are those individuals that do not carry concealed not considered as free?
