    Excellent Resource: Firearm Litigation Case Tracker

    Mods may want to move this to a higher level forum at some point, but I always like to give our Virginia folks a first look at stuff like this.

    While looking up the current status on Bonidy vs USPS (the Post Office parking lot carry case) I ran across a webpage which lists the current status of dozens of major gun cases across the country. Seems it would be an excellent candidate for a Bookmark in your favorite browser!

    BTW, the Bonidy vs USPS appeal is still awaiting decision in the Tenth Circuit from oral arguments last October.

    Thanks. Good.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Interesting research. Reading one of the cases (link below) brought a question to mind.

    http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/...unction_19.pdf

    It concerns the law in Virginia concerning carry on church property during services unless there is a good and sufficient reason
    http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp...0+cod+18.2-283
    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.

    While I fully understand and support the right of a property owner to prohibit firearms on his property I am wondering why the state is writing laws concerning the conduct on church properties. Doesn't this cross the line separating church and state? in recap, I agree the church can restrict possession of firearms on it's property but not sure that the state can create an overriding set of rules/laws that actually restricts the church's rights (i.e. A church can openly welcome it's members to carry weapons for self defense but city police could still show up on Sunday Mornings and detain/charge members they discern as carrying weapons on the way into church) [parody of officer "Not my job to decide if your reason is "good and sufficient" - that is up to the judge to decide"]. While we may prevail in the end, especially with supporting statements from the pastor, it could be an expensive ride.

    My guess is that it is more history carry-over than anything else. See "The obligation to carry firearms" at http://www.saf.org/journal/16/Coloni...Regulation.pdf 1619 Virginia law that required bringing guns to church and set a fine for failing to do so .

    If it's not the Indians it's going to be the zombies.

    stay safe.

    I think that's another of the Byrd Administration laws. Just like the mask statute. He declared war on the klan and all kinds of half hiny laws were passed.
