    Novice question: My (mis?)understanding was that a handgun inside a voting place wasn't allowed. Almost as though it were a Federal building while the pols were open. Am I simply mistaken? Am I within my rights to open-carried while voting in Arlington this evening, the poll being in an apartment complex?

    Many here have been open carrying while voting for a while. If a place isn't "off limits" (school, courthouse, etc.) then opening a polling place does not make it off limits. Carry On!
