    Open Carry Event: Romney, Ryan to campaign in Richmond Friday

    Well ....

    Romney & Ryan will appear 2PM Friday at the Richmond International Airport.

    Clever, huh?

    Explain to me again why I should vote for these Neocons?

    If it were anywhere else do you by any stretch of the imagination think you'd be allowed to OC?

    Open Carry Event: Romney, Ryan to campaign in Richmond Friday

    Well if it were to fall in a location covered under preemption I personally don't see why not. During one of Obamas visits to IIRC New Hampshire a gentleman was OCing maybe 50 yards from where he was loading into his motorcade. As well another guy in Mass. (not positive on the states I'd have to look into it again to be 100%)

    Just because he is "special" doesn't change our local laws... One would hope at least.

    Methinks that Grapeshot is referring to the law that makes carry inside an airport terminal building a crime.

    And I'll bet the sidewalks and roads will be heavily monitored - at least in the section clostest to where he will be.

    What am I saying?!? Everything there is close to where he will be. Look for Secret Service and Capitol Police/State Police to be thick as thieves out there. Henrico PD may get to direct traffic out on Williamsburg Road.

    stay safe.

    Not to sound rude Skid but when I read "if it were to anywhere else.." I get the impression that he is asking if it were to be anywhere other than the airport

    Stop it.

    Everyone knows that every major presidential candidate enjoys the protection of the Secret Service, and they DO set up a security perimeter around the candidates, no matter where they might be.

    To pretend that this is Romney or Ryan specific is just downright dishonest, and you know it.

    If by some disastrous turn of events, Ron Paul were to be a legitimate candidate, the exact same procedures would apply to him as well. The candidates do not have a choice in the matter.

    Ah, yes. The Cone of Security.

    Anybody that wants to can OC/CC/NC outside the yellow tape/velvet rope, but expect to be probulated in order to get any closer.

    stay safe.

    "stop it" I had to laugh about that.

    I don't think anybody can disagree that no matter who it is a security perimeter would be in place. I was only stating that at a different location you might have a better chance of being closer to the event than with it being at the airport terminal.

    cite?

    What, do the secret service kidnap the candidates?

    Ron Paul has in the past publically refused secret service protection.

    The "disasterous turn of events" that would turn return our Republic to Ron Paul's Limited government is far less harmful than eternal war, endless debt and the boot of totaltarianism that obOMNEY promises.

    This is the guy I was talking about in New Hampshire. He caught some flack for it, but he was within his rights. This is why I say it is possible. It just takes the right location.

    In essence, yes they do.

    Ron Paul has in the past publically refused secret service protection.

    Another reason he will never be a major political candidate.

    Do you have some sort of a macro for these things? "Cntrl-R" to regurgitate the same old drivel? It would save you a lot of typing time... maybe you should look into it. There are several good keyboard shortcut applications you can try.

    Probably true, the airport does establish a security perimeter that is probably larger than what the Secret Service would. But I'm sure the Secret Service would not rely on the airport's security for any portion of their perimeter either.

    Well, I think you can stand outside in the entryto the airport CC'ng all you want, just can't go into the building. Unless you are flying and going to check the weapon onto your flight.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    I was under the impression you could carry in the non-secured area of the airport, but I would most definitely verify that before doing so.

    We learn by citing to authority, not to "history". You use "history" because there is either no cite available or you are too lazy to provide it. Come on TFred, follow the rules.

    Air Carrier Airports

    Virginia has 72 airports. Only 9 of these 72 airports are classified as "air carrier airports" and are thus affected by the gun ban in §18.2-287.01.

    An email from the Office of the Governor, dated June 3, 2004, identified the following as the "air carrier airports" in Virginia:

    Reagan National Arlington, VA
    Charlottesville Regional Charlottesville, VA
    Dulles International Chantilly, VA
    Lynchburg Municipal Lynchburg, VA
    Newport News . Williamsburg Regional Newport News, VA
    Norfolk International Norfolk, VA
    Richmond International Richmond, VA
    Roanoke Regional Roanoke, VA
    Shenandoah Valley Regional Staunton, VA

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    My response was more than adequate.

    Tomorrow is Friday.

    What do you suggest I cite for that?

    Yep - technically a Blue and Gold Macaw.

    I calls him "Greentop" and hope he won't parrot everything he heard about the rally.
