    Guns save lives in Fairfax - really.

    Don't see any restriction on Ocing - is held on county owned property and apparently run by the county.

    OC is absolutely fine, Grapeshot. I've OC'd there several times. Sometimes, just because, I've stopped and spent a lot of time asking questions about whatever project or vendor is set up on either side of the MMM booth.

    I've also been approached by other gun owners while there. Most have told me they prefer to conceal, and that's fine with me (though I wonder why they bother to tell a complete stranger they're carrying ...) I OC'd throughout the Charlie Daniels Band concert a few years ago!

    All that said, I didn't realize it was this weekend. Not going to be able to attend, unfortunately.

    The first time I went, I was concerned that they'd use school buses to transport attendees from the mall parking lot to the festival grounds, but they didn't.

    Such use of school bus should not IMO be a violation of 18.2-308.1, though I recognize the problem.

    Have no plans to attend this yr but have been several times before, never an issue regarding my OC'd firearm.
    Saw many folks that I know OC but they all choose to CC for this event.
    County/transit buses are used to transport folks.

    I get lots of folks that like to play show and tell lately.

    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.
