    Open-carry rights

    July 27, 2007



    In Virginia, state law prohibits localities from adopting or enforcing laws regarding the purchase, carrying, possession, storage or sale of firearms. As such, localities have no legal authority to prohibit the open carrying of handguns in locations not subject to state laws.

    In light of several recent situations, it's clear that the city of Norfolk needs some refresher training on Virginia's gun laws. Several law-abiding citizens have been unlawfully disarmed and detained ("Visitor shoots down Harborfest firearms law," July 23). The disarming procedures involved in these situations have endangered the lives of these law-abiding citizens as well as adjacent bystanders. Hopefully this refresher training will take place before someone is unnecessarily injured.

    Was this you, or just an opinion you found? In any case, glad they ran it. I offered a comment on the page.

    Wow, imagine that: Both sides of the topic. Usually the anti's prefer to censor and silence us, because the truth is a little too much sometimes. Good find.

    Lew- yep, I wrote it. Submitted it online the other day and forgot about it until today when my daughter and I were at my company picnic. We were sitting next to an older gentleman that I work with who was reading the paper. Without looking up, he says "Bayboy42"...you just moved to GLoucester Point, didn't you?" I said yes and he leaned over and showed it to me.:what:
