AG Ken Cuccinelli opines that Virginians can carry guns into church...
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued an opinion that Virginia gun owners can carry firearms in church.
Cuccinelli, a Republican in his first term in Virginia's AG office, issued the opinion on Monday in response to a official query from Del. Mark Cole, R-Spotsyvania. On Monday afternoon, Cuccinelli's office released the following statement.
Delegate Mark Cole requested an official advisory opinion from the attorney general as to whether citizens are allowed to carry firearms for self-protection into places of worship. This was the third inquiry from a legislator about this statute in the last year.
Virginia statute § 18.2-293 generally prohibits carrying a firearm into “a place of worship while a meeting for religious purposes is being held at such place.” The statute provides an exception to this general prohibition when an individual has a “good and sufficient reason” for carrying the firearm.
It is the opinion of the attorney general, based on a thorough review of existing law and relevant prior court decisions, that carrying a weapon for self-defense legally constitutes a “good and sufficient reason” under the statute. This opinion assumes that the citizen is lawfully able to carry a weapon, and if carrying concealed, has the appropriate permit to do so."
I haven't failed to carry to services once since then.
