    If all goes well in the coming few days I will be joining you all up there. I hate the restaurant carry issues in VA. I am from PA and currently live in Texas both places it is a non-issue but my problem will be having to leave it in my car after I move to VA. I can not bring myself to open carry a firearm because of my job and the reputation that needs to stand behind my employer and myself.

    Just out of curiosity, what type of job do you have that your following the law would jeopardize you and your employers reputation?

    A law with this requirement was passed by both houses in VA last year, but was vetoed by Gov. Kaine.

    And I suspect he will do it again. I have contacted his office numerous time and gotten the standard response from him. I suggest each of us CONTACT KAINE and urge him to support this legislation, as bad as it is.

    Yup!

    And we were just five votes short of an override.

    Who knows? Maybe this year.

    Got to keep trying.

    I'm sorry guys, this is "sad"... when you think it's OK to have to notify the Mgr of a business that you are carrying a firearm concealed, when you can walk in with one on your hip in the open.

    Fight for what you believe, not for the scraps they want you to accept.

    I do not believe anyone thinks it is OK, I know I do not, but we have to start somewhere. I for one never give up a fight for what I believe.

    Carrying while intoxicated is already a class-one misdemeanor for which one becomes ineligible to have a permit for five years. How is a prohibition against any drinking based on a threat of a conviction for a class three misdemeanor going to enhance that threat? Though two convictions of lesser misdemeanors can also make one ineligible.

    Nothing I say as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice. Legal questions should be presented to a competent attorney licensed to practice in the relevant state.
