My wife and I went to Northern Virginia for our nephew's graduation from high school. I agreed to her request that I did not carry at a dinner in a restaurant the night before with her sister, brother-in-law, brother-in-law's mother, and others.
Virginia requires open carry in restaurants where alcohol is served.
She did not want to upset the brother-in-laws mother, since one of her grandsons (around 12 at the time, I think) had swiped a firearm from his natural father (in South Dakota), smuggled it on to a plane back to Virginia, and had shot to death one of his cousins. I agreed not to take my friend with me that time.
She announced after the graduation that I carried, setting things up for the next time we go to dinner there.
Down here in Florida (and every where else) she assumes that I carry it every place that is legal.
It might be soon - I am looking at a job there.
