18-2.308-J1. Any person permitted to carry a concealed handgun
, who is under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs
while carrying such handgun in a public place, shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. Conviction of any of the following offenses shall be prima facie evidence, subject to rebuttal, that the person is "under the influence" for purposes of this section
: manslaughter in violation of ยง 18.2-36.1
, maiming in violation of ยง 18.2-51.4
, driving while intoxicated in violation of ยง 18.2-266
, public intoxication in violation of ยง 18.2-388
, or driving while intoxicated in violation of ยง 46.2-341.24
. Upon such conviction that court shall revoke the person's permit for a concealed handgun and promptly notify the issuing circuit court. A person convicted of a violation of this subsection shall be ineligible to apply for a concealed handgun permit for a period of five years.
My take on this is that you have to be convicted of one of the statutes listed in order to be deemed "under the influence" while carrying a "Concealed Handgun".
