An important note on 18 USC 930, this sign must be "CONSPICUOSLY POSTED AT EACH PUBLIC ENTRANCE.."; meaning that there is no doubt, in the minds of a reasonable and prudent person that firearms are prohibited. If this is not dispalyed; there is no violation!
Virginia ammended its law to allow the concealed carry in a STATE park and even carry in a bar or restaraunt (18.2-308.012).
While I cannot speak for all LEO's, I can definitively state that my fellow officers are WELL VERSED in the Virginia laws. Why? Because like all of reading this, 99% of the officers I work with are 2d Amendment advocates. We use discretion when dealing with firearms violations. We have to; years ago VCDL sued a couple of officers, the city AND our Department.
Back from the grave.
This sign being painted on a plank instead of an official metal sign like above tells me a "concerned" citizen made this sign and nailed it up in the middle of the night
Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
