    Virginia Employment Commission signs down



    More from a VA-ALERT.

    VA-ALERT is a project of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.

    Dave Knight, VCDL EM, issued a complain that prompted the Virginia
    Employment Commission to take down some illegal signs banning "weapons."

    Dave Knight emailed me this:

    In mid-January, VCDL member Chris Sturgill asked about the legality of
    a "No Weapons Allowed" sign posted at the entrance of the Galax VEC
    Workforce office. He sent me a photo of the sign, and a visit to my
    nearby Radford Workforce office revealed a more detailed, and more
    threatening sign:

    "Possession of Weapons Prohibited Here

    "Virginia Employment Commission policy prohibits weapons on its
    premises. Anyone observed with or believed to have a weapon may be
    refused services and asked to leave the premises. Any incident
    involving the possession of a weapon on VEC property may be reported
    to local law enforcement.authorities.

    "Thank you for your cooperation.
    VEC
    Virginia Employment Commission"

    An email to the manager of the Radford Workforce office requesting a
    citation of the statutory authority for such a policy quickly
    percolated up to the VEC in Richmond, resulting in several phone calls
    from Sam Lupica, COO of the VEC, in which he confirmed the language
    above was, indeed, the "official VEC policy".

    I made several requests for a citation of statutory authority, but
    they went unanswered amid a flurry of assertions that the VEC
    "possessed certain [unspecified] police powers", and that the VEC's
    "counsel in the Atty General's office" had OK'd the policy. I said
    that I remained unconvinced of its legality, and was "considering
    further action."

    The next day, January 28th, I received another call from COO Lupica
    stating that the Atty General's office had just informed him that
    VEC's "no weapons policy" was legally "untenable", and he assured me
    that all the signs would be removed.

    On Monday February 1st, Chris Sturgill reported the illegal sign in
    the Galax VEC office had been taken down. A subsequent check of the
    Radford Workforce office confirmed the sign there had also been removed.

    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.

    Word is coming in that not all the offices have taken the signs down.

    If you happen to be in the area of one, you might check and let us know if it is still posted.
