    As usual, depends on my work schedule.

    Still uncertain. It's "back to school" night.

    This would be so much easier if I could go to the school from 6-6:30, then to the meeting. But I don't want to commit a felony in the process.

    Yeah, I know. Gun in the car. To be safe, park on the street instead of on their property.

    I'm thinking, depending on my mood, just wear an empty holster in to the school?

    I have worn empty gun holster in a FFX Cty school before - no problems even with police looking right at me as I got up to speak at a meeting.

    MAKE SURE the gun is unloaded and locked in trunk, or in a case inside the vehcile BEFORE you drive onto the school grounds.

    Let's make this HOLSTER DAY at back to school night before the VCDL meeting!

    Does VA law define unloaded? Is condition three considered unloaded in VA? (Full magazine in the handgun with an empty chamber; aka Israeli carry.)

    The code you are looking for is §18.2-308.1

    The provisions of this section shall not apply to…(vi) a person who possesses an unloaded firearm that is in a closed container, or a knife having a metal blade, in or upon a motor vehicle, or an unloaded shotgun or rifle in a firearms rack in or upon a motor vehicle; or (vii) a person who has a valid concealed handgun permit and possesses a concealed handgun while in a motor vehicle in a parking lot, traffic circle, or other means of vehicular ingress or egress to the school. For the purposes of this paragraph, "weapon" includes a knife having a metal blade of three inches or longer and "closed container" includes a locked vehicle trunk.
    I hope that helps.

    I know it's been addressed, but we drive SUVs without locking trunks. Locked in a case in the back okay?

    Please check 18.2-308.1 yourself.

    But my read is that unless inside the trunk, neither the car nor the case must be locked.
