    Question

    I haven't seen anything about this anywhere before. There may be no laws pertaining, but I'm getting ready to travel to the Richmond area and will probably be on a boat on and around the James River. Are there any laws pertaining to carrying on a boat?

    Thanks so much and I apologize if this has been discussed.

    If you have a CHP and carry concealed, you should be OK.

    Where it can get tricky is crossing boundaries, e.g., some State Parks include parts of waterways in their boundaries -- OC and carry w/o a CHP is prohibited in State Parks -- not local public parks.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    It depends: if you are on a privately owned vessel, you should ask permission first simply because you are on/in a private domicile(floating). If you are on public, i.e. charter or tour vessel, I would think not.

    In Virginia, there is no need to ask permission in a private domicile.

    Thanks for the replies guys. That was pretty much what I was thinking. I have a CHP and will be carrying my M&P 9c in my CrossBreed SuperTuck.

    Thanks again!
