    If it is the State Veterans' Cemetary in Amelia County, there might not be a problem. (State entities/agencies are not included in preemption but they do need to post.) If it's a cemetary run by the Dept. Of Veterans Affairs the answer is "No!".1

    stay safe.

    1Be very careful. Most of the cemetaries within National Parks are Dept. Of Veterans Affairs-operated and their "no weapons" rule applies. Not even knives are supposed to be brought in. Keeps the place safer, donchaknow.

    Its Albert G Horton in Suffolk. Its state ran though nationally funded. Its falls under Virginia Department of Veterens Services, so i'm assuming its state ran only.

    The website http://www.dvs.virginia.gov/cemetery_horton.shtml confirms it is part of the Virginia Office of Veterans Services. Nohing at the website about firearms - not even for honor guards.

    I know a job is a job regardless of where/what, but caring for veterans even after death deserves a special "Thank You".

    stay safe.

    Isn't it just like the government to protect them after they're dead.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Well, ya know. I do believe you have a point there. Makes more sense. Professional courtesy, that sort of thing. Besides, you never know when one of those bad guys might ripen into, say, a delegate or senator. Gotta protect the next generation, you know.

    Sounds like MPGUY might need some Hornady Zombie Max ammo..You never know who you may run into.

    As an aside, I echo Skid and thanks for taking care of ours that gave theirs.

    Lol I have a box of zombies. Actually the wife was robbed about 10 min from my work last year. With the 5 brake INS we've had at work this year so far and the wife still dealing with what happened, she asked me to buy one.
