RCW 9.41.270
Weapons apparently capable of producing bodily harm — Unlawful carrying or handling — Penalty — Exceptions.

What qualifies as military activities? Does current service in the Army count?

i would think not. unless you are currently on duty. i think that exception covers things like your service side arm, like if your on gaurd duty.
