    Manassas man held in bank robbery
    By MEDIA GENERAL NEWS SERVICE
    Published: May 19, 2010

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Minutes after the BB&T Bank on Seminole Trail was robbed Tuesday, police had a suspect in custody.

    Just before 11 a.m., a man with a pistol went into the bank and demanded money from a teller, according to police.

    Two officers, Greg Davis and Steve Watson, started canvassing the Fashion Square mall parking lot when they spotted a man who matched the description of the robber, according to police.

    “They were really good about getting the description out and the officers were very alert,” said Sgt. Darrell Byers of the Albemarle County Police Department.

    He added, “He was just coming through the wood line.”

    The man threw a container into a parked vehicle, according to police. A later search revealed the container, which police weren’t willing to describe Tuesday, held cash and a gun, according to officials.

    James Manson of Manassas has been charged with armed bank robbery, commission of a felony while in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a felony, according to police.

    He is being held in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail without bond, according to authorities.
    I thought that BB&T had been bought out by a non-anti-gun bank. But they are still posted no gun, around here.

    Your area?

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Did a little checking. Memory synapse failure.

    It was Wachovia that was acquired by Wells Fargo who is supposed not anti-gun, not BB&T.


    From Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL)

    BB&T (Branch Banking & Trust Company), headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C., is a financial holding company. Its bank subsidiaries operate more than 1,100 branch offices in the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana, Florida and Washington, D.C. BB&T ranks No. 4 in Virginia. As far as we can tell, BB&T has posted all of their VA bank locations against carrying firearms openly or concealed.
    See pic -- maybe we should call & report the "incident"

    Thought banks were illegal to carry in anyway.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    That depends on STATE laws, I carry into banks whenever I enter them. It's perfectly legal here in Utah.

    See this thread where that was discussedn great detail; http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...5-cc-bank.html

    I personally carry in to banks, bars, night clubs, pool halls, sporting stadiums, and police stations too and have been for years...Lawfully per state laws.

    Not in Virginia!

    BTW -- anyone have any evidence where the signs or States' "Safety Zone for Criminal" stop robberies?

    And note it is are "a federal institution" not just federally insured.

    FWIIW -- Under Virginia's preemption law police stations are OK, also. However, some around here are in violation of State law. Working on them, one-at-a-time.

    VCDL was instrumental in getting the State law changed to provide
    " 15.2-915. Control of firearms; applicability to authorities and local governmental agencies.

    ....

    C. In addition to any other relief provided, the court may award reasonable attorney fees, expenses, and court costs to any person, group, or entity that prevails in an action challenging (i) an ordinance, resolution, or motion as being in conflict with this section or (ii) an administrative action taken in bad faith as being in conflict with this section.
    [emphasis added]

    Maybe in the future we can get the may changed to a shall

    More folk and attorneys might help with all the one-at-a-times and more localities might stop the reemergence w/ slightly changed wording.

    Wow. I simply cant believe that a gun free zone was robbed at *GASP* GUN POINT! Sorry for the sarcasim, but a sign only stops LAW ABIDING individuals... ITs like a lock, locks dont keep theives out, it keeps the honest people honest.

    Sarcasm : <ON>

    What? A place with a "No Guns Allowed" sign and it was robbed by a gun weilding thug?

    No way.

    According to the Brady Campaign, that can't happen at all. It must be a mis-print, or a concealed permit holder. You know how they view us!

    Sarcasm : <OFF>

    Of course banks get robbed at gunpoint. Stupid is as stupid does. A 'gun-busting' sign is about useless.
