Washington has no law requiring gun owners or purchasers to obtain a license.

In Washington, every city, town, and political subdivision of the state is prohibited from requiring the purchaser of a firearm to secure a permit to purchase, or from requiring a firearms dealer to secure an individual permit for each sale.1

See our Licensing of Gun Owners or Purchasers policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
