    Sure! If anyone asks just tell them that T Dubya on OCDO said it was okay. J/K

    I don't see why not. There are a few OCDO members that really know the law and I'm sure they will say that it's okay.

    As long as they are legally eligible to possess, they can OC.

    Guns aren't "under your name" in this state. We have no registration here.

    what do you mean "under your name"? There is no "gun registry" in VA.

    does not matter as long as they are old enough to carry it legally and are not otherwise prohibited from carrying

    I don't see why not. There are a few OCDO members that really know the law and I'm sure they will say that it's okay.
    First, "Welcome to OCDO!" Be sure to check out the meet-ups and to think about joining VCDL www.vcdl.org .

    The thing about open carry is there is no law about it in Virginia. Virginia;s system only writes laws about what you cannot do - for instance it is not legal to carry a concealed weapon. BUT the General Asembly then wrote into that law an exception if you qualify for a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP).

    Even with a CHP there are some places where you cannot carry concealed - like a restaurant or cliub that serves alcohol for on-premises consumption. There is no law that says you cannot open carry in those places - so when we go to a place that serves beer/wine/booze we can open carry.

    You need to check the federal laws on Green Card holders being allowed to possess (that means even touch) firearms. http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#b5
    B5) Are there certain persons who cannot legally receive or possess firearms and/or ammunition? [Back]


    Yes, a person who –


    (1) Has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year;

    (2) Is a fugitive from justice;

    (3) Is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance;

    (4) Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to a mental institution;

    (5) Is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States or an alien admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa;

    (6) Has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;

    (7) Having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced his or her citizenship;

    (8) Is subject to a court order that restrains the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of such intimate partner; or

    (9) Has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence

    (10) Cannot lawfully receive, possess, ship, or transport a firearm.
    A person who is under indictment or information for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year cannot lawfully receive a firearm.

    Such person may continue to lawfully possess firearms obtained prior to the indictment or information.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(g) and (n), 27 CFR 478.32]
    It looks as if your family will be "good to go" but I am not an attorney so do not rely on what I say.

    Again, welcome to OCDO, Virginia, amd the United States to you and your family.

    stay safe.

    There is a difference between "ownership" and "possession". It doesn't make a spit's worth of difference who owns the gun, the question is about the eligibility of the person in possession of the gun (which has already been well discussed).

    But, to belabor the point, it's possible for a legally insane illegal colonist who's also a convicted felon to own a firearm, as long as he's never in possession of it.

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    Much in the same way a blind person can own a car but not have possession of it.

    In fact, as a teen my grandmother owned the car I used but it was registered inmy name. Her name was on the title. Mine on the registration.
