    Virginia carry laws

    Back in July, new rules went into effect in Virginia. As of the first of that month, concealed carry was allowed in restaurants that served alcohol as long as the carrying person did not comsume said beverages.

    It was also changed that CCW permit holders could now carry concealed inside their vehicles on school grounds as long as they stayed in their cars.

    At that same time, I'm almost sure that a new law allowed NON CCW permit holders to carry a loaded handgun in their glove compartments of their vehicles UNLOCKED.

    I have read the statute and cannot find this change. Bunch of governmental gobbly-**** that I cannot fathom.

    Anyone out there have a handle on this one?

    I can't get to the state website, but this is from handgunlaw.us.

    RV/Car Carry Without A Permit/License
    18.2-308 Personal Protection; Carrying Concealed Weapons; When Lawful to Carry.
    10. Any person who may lawfully possess a firearm and is carrying a handgun while in a personal, private motor vehicle or vessel and such handgun is in a container or compartment in the vehicle or vessel.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I think archer51 said it all. 2012 VA should see the Castle Doctrine and more pro gun laws put into law.

    Thank our AG, NRA, & VCDL for what we have.
