Recently relocated across the river to Vancouver.

What am I in for regarding guns, knives, CCW?

Thanks

Do you have any specific questions?

Guns - Need to complete training in order to purchase anything considered a Semi-automatic Assault Rifle (SAR). There is an extra fee associated with the purchase of a SAR. There is a 10 business day wait for SARs and a up to 10 business day wait for handguns. Receivers/Frames, manually operated/single shot rifles, and all shotguns are still same day with a NICS check.

Knifes - regulated by state, county, and city. Varying legalities concerning fixed blade. No auto knives, but assisted is ok. I generally stay at 3.5" or under for blade length for EDC, but that is just a personal preference.

CCW - WA is a shall issue state, so unless they find cause to deny you, they will issue you a permit. To apply, you would go to a police/sheriff station that has jurisdiction over your residence. This means that, if you live in a city with a local police force, then you can go to through the local police or the county sheriff. If you live in a city that contracts out to the county or live in a unincorporated area, then you would have to go to the county sheriff. There are jurisdictions that are putting their applications online, but you would still have to go in for fingerprinting. Cost will depend on jurisdiction, but it normally hovers around $40-$60.

@firepyro515  Thanks, that’s a great summary. Any magazine capacity limits?

The training for "assault weapons" is free online thanks to your friendly local Vancouver FFL Sporting Systems. Definitely check this store out, it's A+ and Dan does a ton to support the community.

Every year we fight the liberals for our right to keep our large capacity magazines.

1639 got through unfortunately. They totally lied about the description on the ballets.. they made it sound like it was for common sense safety.
Hopefully now that many people who were against firearms now own firearms due to the riots and craziness that has gone around that they might lose some supporters.. Well I hope that.

Any case we have to remain vigilant on keeping our 2nd amendment rights.
Surprisingly 5ish years ago we got the right to shoot our suppressors, and legalized SBRs. Unfortunately no MG or SBS.

I'm not sure about knives.. I think there was something about legalizing automatic blades, but I'm not sure if that got through.

Which organizations are you all supporting for 2A rights?

And in 2014, they passed Initiative 594.

Whatever they can not pass in legislature, they simply ram down our throats, with a vote in November.
Which the West Side Retards, always pass.

Yes,

Short version, (in combination with above):

Knives: Generally WA is probably more restrictive than OR - switchblades, 'gravity knives,' etc. are a 'no go.'

Guns: As pointed out, we've got 1639, so extra requirements for semi-auto rifles, even the 10/22 (which is now classified as a semi-automatic assault rifle).  Also don't forget the storage and theft/loss reporting requirements, and lifetime medical privacy waiver for new semi-auto and handgun purchases.

No Class III/full-auto and basically no private party sales w/o dealer BGC in WA (I594).

RCWs: https://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?Cite=9.41

And...generally speaking, it's 'standard capacity' not 'large capacity.'  The Glock 17 was standard with a 17 rd. mag.  Beretta 92 and Sig 226- 15 rd. mag, BHP - 13 rd. mag, and so on.  So what the CG crowd wants is 'reduced capacity' magazines.  YMMV.
