    An acquaintance told me if you have a WA-CHL "YOU MUST CONCEAL AT ALL TIMES
    WITHIN CITY LIMITS OR THEY'LL TAKE YOUR LICENSE!!"

    This sounds BOGUS to me and HE said he searched it out... purportedly spelled out in the
    CHL guide book (which I could not find a copy of online).

    I looked thru related headings online: http://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9.41
    and found NOTHING.

    DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO THIS WEIRD CLAIM???

    Thanks,

    Washington is a preemptive open carry State. Local jurisdictions can pound sand.

    NO!!!!!!

    You can open carry. Or concealed carry with a permit.
    If you have a permit, you will most likely be concealing.

    Totally false. The permit ALLOWS you the OPTION to concealed carry, it does not require it.

    You shouldn't have to ask permission for open or concealed carry. Getting permission, any imposed limits or prohibitions are infringements.
