    Herndon Va says they get it

    From VCDL ALERT

    Herndon now says that gun owners are welcome after ejecting an open carry from the Herndon Festival in June
    ************************************************** **************************

    A gun owner who was peacefully open carrying at the Herndon Festival in June was surrounded by 10 Herndon police officers and told he could not have his gun there.

    The gun owner complied and contacted VCDL.

    I [Philip Van Cleave, VCDL Presedent] ended up talking to a Captain about the incident and I explained that they had violated Virginia's preemption laws.

    I finally got a resolution today. The Captain left a message saying
    that the Herndon Attorney said that all citizens have the lawful right
    to bear arms in Virginia and Herndon honors that. Gun owners are
    always welcome in Herndon, he said.

    I suggest that we "trust but verify" by having a turnout next year at
    that event.

    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.

    I'll bet there response came after they got whacked with a lawsuit

    I'm a little confused as to how this even happened in the first place. New officers? Herndon hasn't been GOU in quite a while. I open carry in/around there regularly.

    Oh well. At least it's fixed...this time.
