    This column wonders what Bloomberg might think if he came out to Washington for a visit. Here, he would find quite a few armed citizens. According to the Department of Licensing, there are now more than 275,000 active Concealed Pistol Licenses in the state and the number keeps climbing. Joe Waldron, legislative director for the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, believes this is a new record.

    Those numbers don't include the people with Utah permits (valid in WA) do they?

    Good story.
     
  4. My understanding is that Utah permits are valid for non-residents, but if you live here, you need a WA permit. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also, I'm too lazy to research this myself so don't ask me to cite an RCW.

    The statement is correct.
