I made it to one of the upper floors and didn't pass a single metal detector, security guard, or FCPD officer.
On a related note, my brother who's had to go to the main Gov't Center building (the big one with the county seal on the outside of it) said they have metal detectors inside it.
Obviously Fairfax County is not exempt from preemption, so how can they legally "ban guns" by forcing you to pass through metal detectors, or in the case of the Herrity Bldg, subject you to a random search? These are public buildings afterall.
I have to go back next week to the same building, if I remember I'll try and snap a pic.
I dont necessarily see how being subject to search or passing through a metal detector equates to a gun ban. Did the sign say no guns? Remember, they can ban knives, pepper spray, alcoholic beverages,etc and still allow guns (as silly as that may seem).
