    "in your own place of business". (VA)

    I hope someone knows the actual application of this. In the code (virginia), it makes an exception where you can carry a concealed firearm without a permit "in your own place of business". Does this mean you have to be a manager or owner, or merely an agent of the company? Thanks guys. I figure it includes employees, but everyone I've asked goes the other way with it.

    Owner or authorized by the owner is my take.

    I agree with Chooie. I think the intent is to be able to defend your livelihood but employees can be authorized. On the other hand, employees can be forbidden to carry too.

    For a good demonstration of visiting a store where the owners and employes are all armed, go visit Virginia Arms in Manassas.

    louie,
    that is exactly what i was talking about. if you are an employee of a firearm dealer, would you need a va chl (of course, the permission of the owner as well). I know most employees carry, but imagine there are some who don't have a permit.

    Here in SC the employee is allowed to carry on the business property IF the owner has given written permission for them to do so. I am sure this covers open and concealed carry.

    Don't know what the policy is on where the written permission letter is maintained but my best guess would be in the personnel files.
