    Virginia: Governor McDonnell Confirms Changes to Allow Lawful Carry of a Firearm in State Forests!

    Sunday, May 08, 2011

    On May 6, Governor Robert F. McDonnell approved changes to the Virginia Department of Forestry’s Virginia State Forest Regulation 4VAC10-30-170. The approved changes went into immediate effect.

    The changes will permit law-abiding Virginians to carry a firearm in State Forests. These changes now allow for both the lawful carrying of concealed firearms by those who possess a concealed carry permit, as well as open carrying for anyone in lawful possession of a firearm.

    The new language to the Administrative Code is below:

    4VAC10-30-170. Explosives, firearms, etc.

    No person shall bring into or have in any forest any explosive or explosive substance. This regulation shall not apply to the lawful carrying of firearms and firearm ammunition.

    Please contact Governor McDonnell by e-mail and thank him for improving Virginia’s regulatory environment for lawful firearm owners!

    Awesome!!! Virginia is fairly gun-owner friendly...and getting better all the time!!! Too bad NC (where my parents live and I visit often) is not so much.

    Really SW, Virginia
    I got an update e-mail from VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League) that states that it does not go into effect immediately. It goes into effect on July 7th 2011.
