  1. ccw at the Monroe / Evergreen State Fairgrounds

    I don't have personal experience with Washington law, so I didn't respond to your first post.

    I looked here and saw one place where you'd be restricted from carry is "on the site of an "outdoor music festival" (RCW 70.108.150)"

    Beyond that, I don't know what to tell you.

    1. It is not illegal. RCW 9.41.300 lists the locations where carrying a firearm is legal (and RCW 70.108.150 - music festivals).

    2. Concealed is concealed. Last time I was there, there were no metal detectors or frisking. I concealed carry at the races.

    It is a privately owned property for one thing and as long as they have no signs that say you cannot carry then it is legal. Since it is private property they have the right if you will to forbid it. Constitutionally which i support says in the 2nd Amendment: This right shall not be infringed. I conceal carry in many places. Like it was said concealed is concealed and i would rather be protected since some bad guy with a gun could pop up anywhere.

    In Washington, even if they do have signs that say you cannot carry, it is still legal. There is no law in Washington against carrying past a no firearms sign.

  8. good posts guys.. thanks for your response.. as a responsible citizen i want to be aware of the laws and abide them.. at the same time i'm always cautious of posted signs. like you said redbone, especially somewhere like the races with large crowds, i always like to ccw because there is more potential of a threat. I just came across this site duing my search for this awnser online.. thanks again for your feedback, it's nice to know other ccw'ers that are local.

    You might want to check out OpenCarry.org - Discussion Forum We have a very active Washington section in that forum. You won't find many of us there that concealed carry on a regular basis, but you will find a large group of Washington open carriers there who are very knowledgeable on gun laws and we meet together lots of places throughout the year. You don't have to choose to open carry to be welcome, just don't berate us for doing so. I think you will find more of a Washington local social network there.

    I've read RCW 70.108.150 many times. Even many times in the last three years that this thread has been untouched. Can I ask what the point is you are trying to make?
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.
