A: “Washington State issues concealed pistol licenses which must be carried on you anytime you have a concealed pistol with you. If you’re in a car, the pistol can be on your person or in your car. So, to answer your question — yes — you can have a loaded weapon under your seat, as long as you have a concealed pistol license. However, if you leave the car, make sure your pistol’s out of sight, and your vehicle’s locked. Ray, that’s a great question. Thanks!” — Everett police Ofc. Aaron Snell
