    I plan on going to the D-Day Memorial 65th gathering next weekend with some of my fellow members of the armed forces and would like to open carry as I usually do. However, I'm fairly new to carrying and stilllearning all the does and donts as to where andI don't know if Bedford has any restrictions or pestering that I should watch out for. Can anybody shed some light on that for me? Also will anybody else be attending?

    No problems in Bedford County. The D Day Memorial is private, I don't know if they have any restrictions.

    Just off Route 460 near the Bedford Area Welcome Center. If that helps any. I'm not sure exactly because I've never been able to go. They're facing having to close the memorial for lack of funding and this is supposed to be the biggest turnout of veterans since the dedication.

    The event may be sponsored by a private entity, but the venue is public.
    The project [Memorial Center] is a joint effort of Bedford City and County to provide a place for visitors and citizens alike to learn about the many points of interest and benefits offered in and around Bedford as well as a facility for use by community groups and businesses.

    great

    so for now it's okay... but if that passes it'll be considered the same national parks?
