From Va-Alert:

Open Carry Day in New Castle is THIS Saturday! (New Castle is west of Roanoke on Hwy. 311).

It is being held on Main Street, Saturday, November 16th, from 10 AM to 3 PM. It is an event sanctioned by the town.

There will be carriage rides, street vendors, etc! I've been honored to be on of the guest speakers at the event.

If you are free that Saturday, this sounds like the place to be! Imagine, a whole town celebrating our right to keep and bear arms.

NOTE: VCDL will have a table at this event - contact Board member Al Steed Jr. at if you can help man the booth. Set up time for the booth is 8:30 AM

**A big turnout to this celebration by gun owners would certainly send a strong message to other towns and cities in Virginia.**
