    Yep - public park owned by the City of Chesapeake and operated by Parks & Recreation = preemption applies.

    so went to the park for the picnic and overheard somebody say the called the police. I went over to the park ranger and asked if they had a call about it and she said that she hadnt heard of anything and radioed another officer and he had not heard of anything either. Both of them also said i was completely legal.

    Someone was trying to bluff you - didn't work did it.

    Whenever I have picked up a negative "following" at fairs and such, I will seek out a LEO and engage him/her in off topic discussion like "What is the estimated crowd here today?" or "Where are the porta-johns?" Then thank them and walk away - drives the antis bananas and calms the fence sitters as my pretty 1911 is like a jewel in the sun - hard to miss - but didn't raise the LEO's eyebrows.

    There is a madness to my method.
