As regards GMU, the decision handed down in DiGiacinto v. The Rector and Visitors of George Mason University, 281 Va. 127, 704 S.E.2d 365 (2011) January 13, 2011 does in fact state that the insides of the buildings are in fact sensitive areas. Further, those with CHPs are still not permitted to carry inside the buildings at GMU or VCU as their regulations (Va Administrative Code) has the force of law. However, it seems that the AGs opinion strengthens the fact that carry on the grounds outside the buildings should not be sanctioned by any reading of the applicable VAC.
As has been noted elsewhere, the General Assembly is keeping an eye on the issue of just how much authority the Boards of Visitors can exert over citizens of the Commonwealth who are not directly connected to the colleges/universities by enrollment or employment. That same General Assembly is also contemplating whether and how much of a jumble of state agency policies ought to be allowed with regards to the control of firearms. Some think that agencies that do not have a direct tie to issues regarding firearms (Dept. of Corrections/Juvenile Justice. Game & Inland Fisheries) may soon be told to take their noses out of the matter.
