Hi, this is a question for all you Washingtonians out there. I was wondering about the legality of carrying at two places. First, a gunshow held on the local fairgrounds. Pretty sure that is legal but I'd like to verify that. Also, there are several events going on at a local convention center one of which I have to attend as part of my work. Because I will be representing my company and they specifically don't allow carry at work I will leave the gun behind but it got me wondering if it was even legal to carry there. Does anybody know if stadiums, convention centers etc are against the law or is it just the same as any other place that can ask you to leave? Thanks for your insight.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

Read the RCW's that were posted earlier. They clearly state that firearms can not be carried in Arenas and Convention Centers UNLESS you posses a valid CCL. I would urge you, along with everyone else here I am sure, to read and study your local laws carefully before you carry.

I think most of the gun shows in Washington State have their own restrictions on CPL to prevent people from handling a loaded concealed piece. Check the show restrictions as well as the RCWs.
