    I am not sure of the official ownership, but I have carried there a few different times and had no issues.

    It's never been an issue for me either.

    It is owned by the city of Hampton and paid for by our tax dollars.For a limited period of time when it was first opened, any citizen ofHampton could visit free of charge.

    I know it was created by congress and is 70% funded by tax dollars but does that make it federal property? Just trying to dig a little deeper. Just thinking, a lot of private tax deductible money supports this entity, so to make a blanket statement that it is federal property might not be entirely true. Would like some input with some facts. Wish I knew the law better!

    FYI, in re Air & Space annex in northern VA, there's an obscure federal (36 CFR 504) law gives unusual power to the Smithsonian, allowing the Director of the Smithsonian to ban guns anywhere on the planet that the Smithsonian operates, even a temporary exhibit. Get caught with a gun at Udvar-Hazy, in any manner of storage, whether in the parking lot or the museum itself, and you get hauled into DC, charged under DC law and spend the night (or more) in a DC jail, even though you are 40+ miles outside DC. Figure that out.

    Seems like a good time for the Sheriff to refuse to arrest him (and arrest any federal officers who try) The fed gov't really likes to overstep their boundries. Someone should put them in their place.

    The elections this fall could be a good beginning.
