    I'll kick off the thread this time. Family and I had a great time at the October meet, so let's kick off the planning for this time.

    Third Tuesday is November 21. We stay in town for Thanksgiving, so I'm game. Anyone else? I'll let the locals pick the place, just let me know and we'll be there!

    One of these days I'll convince the wife to pack too. :shock:

    I have to work 21 November, so I won't be able to attend. Sorry I missed the October meet. Glad that it went well, even though turnout was low.

    I'll be glad to attend a get together. This will be my first one, so I don't know anybody from the forums. My schedule is pretty open (college student, I think I'll be off during that time anyways).

    So I'm guessing that the library doesn't care that you OC there?

    The library may "care", but legally they can't do diddly, since it is a public tax-financed institution. There is no state level prohibition on such carry and state pre-emption prevents the local authorities from forbidding it. Check out the VCDL story on the issue of carry in Newport News libraries recently. The libraries were forced to take down their "no guns" signs.

    Ah, so if someone working at the library asks you to leave, you can say "no", and it's not criminal tresspass, because it's public property? Does this go with all public/government places, like police stations, or the DMV as well?

    VCDL is going to have a membership meeting in the Richmond area on Wednesday, November 22nd. The meeting starts at 7 PM, but fellowship begins at 6:30. Afterwards we will adjourn to a local restaurant for continued fellowship.

    The meeting is open to the public, so bring your friends!

    The meeting is going to be held at an opulent new library in Henrico (I have often said that Henrico is a Fairfax wannabe):

    Tuckahoe Area Library
    1901 Starling Drive
    Richmond VA 23229
    Ph: (804) 270-9578

    More info can be found at http://www.co.henrico.va.us/library/tu.htm

    Hi new to the site but have become interested in OC'ing because of the lovely ban on places that serve adult beverages. So I'm in but can't do Wed. I'll be following the thread to see what happens.

    Membership meeting as in you can join there? I have yet to join the VCDL, but have been interested for a while now. Can you do that night if you go to the meeting?

    I'm sure you can join at the meeting, but if you don't make the meeting, just go to VCDL.org and join online. At $15 a year, it is a real bargain.

    Yeah, sorry GTG is "Get To Gether"

    I can't make the meeting on Wednesday, and seems like popular sentiment is to cancelthis month's dinner. So I'll see you guys in December!

    As previously posted, I have to work Tuesday night, but I will be in town and plan to be at the VCDL meeting on Wednesday. Hope to see some of you there!

    P.S. Not sure if I should OC the Alaskan or the twin G20's. Suggestions?

    Question: I just want confirmation that we can OC at the Henrico library? The way I understand it, we can, but I just want confirmation.
    It is a local government facility, so according to Virginia state law they cannot prohibit carry:

    § 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...carrying...firearms...other than those expressly authorized by statute.
    (snip)
    The provisions of this section applicable to a locality shall also apply to any authority or to a local governmental entity, including a department or agency, but not including any local or regional jail or juvenile detention facility.

    B. Any local ordinance, resolution or motion adopted prior to the effective date of this act governing the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof, other than those expressly authorized by statute, is invalid.

    I'm glad the meeting was a success. I'm sorry I didn't make it. I left the house a little after 6, figuring I'd make it for the fellowship if traffic wasn't bad, yet still be on time even if it was. Wrong! I live near the airport, and decided to take 295 to avoid going 64/95/64 through downtown. At 7:15, I was still on 295, in a very long and barely moving line of cars somewhere around the I-95 split near Ashland. Since I believe it is very rude to be as late as I was going to be at that point, I just gave up and came back home.
