    As we all know, firearms are not completely prohibited on K-12 property.

    These signs have been mentioned in other threads in regard to areas such as Roanoke and Patrick County too.

    Didn't ask for one. I was just mentioning it to note that similar signs were recently discussed.

    Then they need similar letters/postcards/responses to their signs.

    I should think that this is a case where you do not have to abide by the sign and can completely ignore it since it violates Virginia law. Am I off base on this one??
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Signs are not LAW (except in driving - ie: "Failure to obey highway sign")

    False alarm. I stopped by this location today... there are some 'no' signs on the fence in several areas, but there is nothing that mentions firearms at all. (which is a good thing... ).

    I love the subject to search sign iaw VA law. So if you were in you car concealed with permit and they asked you out to search what then?

    Same response that I would give them at any other time... 'NO, I do not consent to a search of myself or my property... Am I free to go?'.

    Then see where the chips fall from there....

    "...in accordance with the code of Virginia".

    Tell them it would be against the law for you to get out of your car. I don't think that would do any good, but it might make think think a little.
