Thread: Quick Question on VA Law
Does Virginia have any laws (state or local) against carrying in state or local parks? I may be visiting the Virginia Creeper Trail this Saturday and wanted to know if any laws would prevent me from carrying on it.
"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin
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.
State parks are legal.

Little fuzzy still, but local park's should be exempt through state law.

§ 15.2-915. Control of firearms; applicability to authorities and local governmental agencies.
A. No locality shall adopt or enforce any ordinance, resolution or motion, as permitted by § 15.2-1425, and no agent of such locality shall take any administrative action, governing the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, storage or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof other than those expressly authorized by statute. For purposes of this section, a statute that does not refer to firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof, shall not be construed to provide express authorization.
