    I have and always OC there. Have never been asked to leave and both their staff and security people have seen me. As far as wether or not they can ask you to leave I don't remember I know it was discussed I'll see if I can find that thread.

    Based on the info on their website, it appears the zoo is owned and operated by the City of Norfolk (meaning that 15.2-915 should apply)

    Owned and operated by the city - preemption applies - end of story.

    I've also OC'd there with no issue and in case it matters, never have had them doing bag checks when I've been there. However, get caught bringing a straw in...you will get yelled at.

    Norfolk Zoo

    I'm on my way to the zoo with my wife right now. I won't be OC, because I am doing a gear test for a new iwb holster, but if you see us (I'm wearing a black shirt khaki shorts, and she is wearing a grey dress with pink dots), come over and say hi!
