    Exclamation Pending CCW Legislation In Virginia

    Somehow the following issue slipped under everyone's radar. I know because there has been only one comment submitted.

    "As you may or may not know, there is a move afoot to allow CCW licensees to concealed carry in State Forests. Now there is one more hurdle a public web-based comment period.

    If you want to carry concealed in VA State forests go to the website and put in a comment TODAY!

    COMMENT PERIOD ENDS JULY 8, 2009

    The website's address is: http://townhall.virginia.gov/L...age.cfm?stageid=5042

    To enter, click on the "In Progress" symbol under "Comment Period" at the bottom of the page.

    Then, Click on "Enter a comment."

    Enter your name, email address, subject, comment, and the two letter code (found at the bottom, which is used to verify you are a real person sitting at a keyboard).

    Sample subject line: "Please approve concealed carry in State Forests!"

    Sample message: "I support the proposed regulation change. Please expedite the change!"

    P L E A S E, let your Virginia members & friends know about this important issue. Also, I encourage you to post this same message on other CCW websites you visit.

    Thanks!

    The actual link for the Townhall page is abbreviated, and does not work. Can you re-post the whole link?

    Not sure what they are trying to do. Per VA Administrative Code (4VAC15-40-60) CC with a permit is legal in State Parks.

    LIS > Administrative Code > 4VAC15-40-60

    Yea, I also thought state(and federal) FORESTS were OK for CCW, unlike PARK rules.

    State Parks, State Forrest and WMA's are all legal for CC in VA.

    State parks: 4VAC5-30-200
    State/National Forests: 4VAC15-40-60
    WMAs: 4VAC15-270-60

    VCDL is also asking for amended comments requesting a hearing to make open carry legal.

    The issue apparently is that state forest regs are in conflict with state law.

    Point of order: This is a regulatory, not a legislative, issue.
