    18.2-283. Carrying dangerous weapon to place of religious worship.
    If any person carry any gun, pistol, bowie knife, dagger or other dangerous weapon, without good and sufficient reason, to a place of worship while a meeting for religious purposes is being held at such place he shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.
    (Code 1950, 18.1-241; 1960, c. 358; 1962, c. 411; 1975, cc. 14, 15.)

    The language about good and sufficient reason is not very clear. Pro-gunners consider carrying for personal safety good and sufficient reason, whereas a cop or court might not.
    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.

    For what it is worth, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued an opinion stating that self-defense is a good and sufficient reason. Note this is only an opinion and is not legally-binding.

    As Citizen noted, it would come down to the officers and courts involved if there were an issue.

    Actually, it was just for Carolina that I wasn't familiar with. That, and maybe eating while I'm down here. Will post my experience of the day when we are done.

    Wasn't on the door I came in.
