Second - topics of conversation:
1. This does not speak to rimfire rifles. Does that mean that one could open carry a GSG-5 (for those unfamiliar with the GSG-5, there is a picture here - http://www.gsg5rifle.com/item/77083_GSG-5_Rifle.aspx)
under the statute, even in those enumerated restricted areas (Alexandria, Chesapeake, Fairfax, etc.)?
2. As the statute says that one may not carry in only certain areas (again - Alexandria, Chesapeake, Fairfax, etc), it appears that this means pretty much anything can be open carried in other areas (e.g., a silenced, semi-auto AK-47 with a 75 round drum mag and underfolder stock is fine). Your thoughts?
3. "The provisions of this section shall not apply to... any person having a valid concealed handgun permit..." Sounds to me as though if you have a concealed carry permit, you can open carry that AK-47 in Fairfax too. Thoughts?
Again, just curious to see what you guys think and whether you've had any experience with this situation. I first asked over at http://www.ar15.com
and they directed me to you folks. Glad to have signed up over here!
