    I've been looking for no guns signs at state buildings and not finding any. I stopped in an ABC store and asked...while open carrying...they didn't even know about the executive order, said it was stupid and until otherwise ordered, open carry was welcome.

    a bill coming this year

    A bill coming this year. This will prohibit shooting within 25 yards of a public road. The purpose is to stop shooting down roads as we saw in the Harris video I posted a while back. I'm in favor of this but is it going to be supported by the 2A community, or will they see it as an infringment????

    Greentop door person shoots self

    was looking for a new priming tool when BAM from up front. The door guard checked to see if a gun was unloaded but no one told him it was a bad idea to hold your hand over the muzzle. A good lesson from the highly trained staff at green tops.

    interesting distinction

    In the meantime, people should be aware that they do not have the right to resist detention by officers, he said. Although Virginia has a law allowing citizens to resist unlawful arrest, the state Supreme Court has ruled this right does not extend to unlawful detention. The 2002 ruling in...

    let's shoot down the road in king and queen

    Dog hunters seem to get away with anything. Trespass, reckless handling, shooting from a public road, etc. Like street gangs, they like to video themselves doing it. This fellow was actually charged in King And Queen due to numerous complaints. He was sentanced yesterday. Shooting down a...

    finger printing

    I thought finger printing for CHPs had been done away with. If so, Southampton has an illegal ordinance. ..I ran across it looking at their dog laws. I don't have a dog in that fight (pun intended).
