Aside from the obvious places we all know not to carry, I think trying to call a business or restaraunt to get their policy on carrying weapons when you patronize their business is...well, whimpy. You just do it! I scrupulously scoure the entrance to a business for any "no guns" posting and if there isn't any prominently displayed, I go on in packin'. This mentality of "mommy...may I please bring my gun in with me" has to cease. It's your right so act like it. Stop being a whimp!
We see many times that it is just some errand employee that decides to define policy and ask you to leave, not the policy of the store.
Does anyone know if they have to ask you to leave everytime in VA, or is a past "asking" enough to cover forever?
