Jim, I believe you're permitted to have your weapon on you when picking up/dropping off kids at school; I'll check myself, but I believe that's written into the RCW. regarding the "gun free" bullshit on theaters and such, like the policy here at Central Washington Hospital, I ignore it. It's concealed, and all they can do is ask me to leave. I kinda feel their "right" to not be scared doesn't supercede my right to defend myself. Yep, I'm right, just checked; it's RCW 9.41.280, subsection 3 (e). If you have a ccp, you're not required to disarm yourself when dropping off or retrieving the progeny.
