Ok so some of you might alredy know I am a student at NOVA annandale campus. My understanding of the firearm laws are pretty accurate from what I think.
My professor is a very intelligent man and worked for the Federal Government as a Special Agent for over two decades. Although he is not 100% sure he is pretty certian I am mistaken. My knowledge of this matter is..
That anyone of the age of 18 or over may openly carry a firearm as long as its not stated it is now allowed. I.E post office, police station, etc. Also as long as he has not convicted a felony.
A permit is not required for open carry as long as the person is over the age of 18.
Not 100% sure on this one but, a handgun is not registered to the buyer specifically.
Anyone under the age of 21 may not puchass a handgun or handgun ammo.
The penalty for conceal carrying a handgun is a misdameanor.
Local and state law enforcement can not arrest someone of the age of 18 or older for openly carrying a handgun that does not disguise its true nature.
I wish today I had the statues with me, but I could only display my NRA ID. This is not an argument more of a discussion. I know a Federal agent might be able to charge me with a firearm violation at best, but I'm not sure what the penalty. So basically I'm asking some of you guys if you could show me all the statues regarding my issues so I can show him next class. I don't want to rub his face in it, just want to inform him of the local statues. So any help guys? Thanks I know you guys here and will have an answer to this question so, thanks in advance.
