    Ok, "The Law typically restricts"???? Typically???? Huh????

    It's a good thing they don't mention that open carry is legal for anyone. Just think of the froth from this readership that would be coming our way.

    "The law typically restricts" means that there are some very narrow and nitpicky exceptions to the prohibited places listed -- for instance, it is legal to have a gun on school grounds "while picking up or dropping off a student" if you have a concealed-carry permit, but apart from that narrow exception, carry is typically prohibited on school grounds. Carry in bars has a similar nitpicky nuance: it is prohibited to carry into the "21 or over" section of an establishment which sells alcohol, but it is perfectly legal to carry into (for example) a restaurant which also serves booze, provided there's no "21-or-Over" signage at the door. So carrying in a bar is typically prohibited, with one very nuanced exception.

    I think the reporter's wording was excellent, considering the paper's space limitations. I also think the article is a very accurate short summary of some very complicated laws. The reporter obviously worked hard to get it right. Kudos to her!

    Or "afford the consequences".
    How can the CCW laws be loosened? Paperclip an amendment to the back of a "miniature USA flags for crippled children" bill? It's too bad WA is so strict on school property carry and don't recognize Oregon's CHL (and vice versa).
