A question for folks in Northern Virginia. I am trying to decide whether or not the Virginia Gold Cup race is off-limits for carry. It is an outdoor venue; during the races there are so-called tavern tents on the premises that sell alcohol. Looking at the laws, though, I get this:
The actual definitions of "club" and "restaurant" in §4.1-100 do not seem to apply, at least as my reading of it goes.Code of Virginia
§ 18.2-308. Personal protection; carrying concealed weapons; when lawful to carry.
J3. No person shall carry a concealed handgun onto the premises of any restaurant or club as defined in §4.1-100 for which a license to sell and serve alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption has been granted by the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board under Title 4.1 of the Code of Virginia[...]
I have no idea whether Great Meadow, the actual venue, is posted, but in Virginia that just means I have to leave if asked or be charged with trespassing.
