    Though, I thought I knew the VA laws on Carring, I thought I would ask First. Tomorrow, I will Be attending a Hunter Safty Class With my niece, it is held in the Chesapeake Sheriff Admin. Bldg. This building is across the street from the jail, and court house. I want to carry but, do not want to break any laws. Any help please!

    If that building is considered part of the courthouse then you cannot carry. If it is JUST a sheriff's building then you should be fine b/c of state preemption laws. (IANAL so this is not legal advice.)

    One the other side of the issue, the class probably has a no loaded weapons in the classroom rule. The instructor may ask you to put your firearm in you car. The hunter safety course I took in Chesterfield had that rule. This is because they have guns there to demonstrate their function and safe handling procedures. If you can conceal however, they would not know.
