Where can I find rules and regulations about firearms (especially handguns and carrying concealed weapons)?

There are two ways you can learn about firearm rules and regulations in Washington State. One way is to refer to chapter 9.41 RCW, entitled "Firearms and Dangerous Weapons," which is available online at http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=9.41.

The second way is to read the brochure released by WDFW's Hunter Education Division. The brochure, entitled "Firearms Safety, the Law, and You. Basic Safety, General Laws, and Regulations," is available on the WDFW website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/huntered/.

You can obtain a physical copy of the brochure by calling WDFW's Hunter Education Division at (360) 902-8111 or by visiting any license dealership.
