    In VA can you carry a gun in your vehicle in a state park? I have some friends asking? They don't have a CC permit so would open carry it but would like to take it but leave it in there car. They are planning to camp in the park is why they are wondering.

    Currently only CC is allowed in state parks in VA. IANAL but I would think in the event they do not have a CHP the firearm must be unloaded and secured while in the state park.

    Yes I carry a Bible and a Gun, your point.

    Unloaded and secured is for the travel part of federal laws. It also involves transportation through a place, not while you stay.

    I was recently at a State Park for 11 days. I saw a sign that said firearms were prohibited except with a concealed handgun permit. Do a search on my user name and look for a thread about carry in state parks if you want the exact wording.
