    Thumbs up Partial victory in Virginia State Forests!

    Va-alert:

    Virginia State Forests have ruled on VCDL's petition to allow open and
    concealed carry (with chp) in State Forests.

    In the ruling, they are going to allow for concealed carry with CHP's,
    but deny open carry.

    Basically, State Forests will mimic State Parks in how they treat the
    otherwise lawful carry of handguns.

    However, both State Forests and State Parks are in violation of
    Attorney General Bob McDonnell's opinion that open carry is legal in
    parks and cannot be banned.

    While this is a victory of sorts, I will be conferring with the VCDL
    Board of Directors for our next move on both forests and parks, as a
    ban on open carry is still not acceptable in either venue.

    Anyway, good work, VCDL: Your 2,000 comments certainly helped getting
    the way cleared for concealed carry in state forests.

    I will keep you posted as to our next move, whenever that comes.

    Here's the ruling:

    Virginia Regulatory Town Hall View Petition

    note: The new rule is not in effect yet, so don't conceal carry in
    State Forests until we give the go ahead.

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

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
