I should have mentioned this a while back, but on the First week of April The Mrs, and my Parents will driving down to Colonial Williamsburg for the week.
I’ll need to do a little online research, but I thought since I have a ton of readers who live in Virginia, or regularly find themselves there, I thought I’d ask about carry laws there, since they likely know them better than I could learn from reading.
Overall I’d prefer to carry the whole time I’m down there, but I don’t know what parks and/or areas are off limits to licensed carry.
Also I’ll need to run this by my folks who are neither gunnies, nor bloggers if it would be possible to have a blog get-together one evening, since there are several of you down there whom I have met and think are awesome, and several who I really would love to meet for the first time.
So open discussion, what carry pitfalls exist in Virginia (Like I believe Restaurant carry has been legalized, but it is illegal to drink while armed…no issue there) If say the parks are off-limits it might not be worth the trouble, otherwise better safe than sorry.
Also are there any restaurants near the park and days where it might be convenient to meet up that week?
Thanks in advance!
**UPDATE** First up I found this forum thread that seems to point that the Park is not posted, so its Carry-legal.
Also For those who keep pointing out the obvious, that Massachusetts is an anti-gun state that doesn’t recognize any other state’s carry permits, therefore there are precious few states that honor my Mass permit, I’ll be carrying on my Florida Permit. (One reason why I’m such an advocate of HR 822, I have currently 4 carry permits, and I see that as a pointless waste of time and money keeping them all in good standing, especially when that only gives me about 40 states of coverage). So I’ll be carrying concealed, while I’m there…tho like I always point out, accidental exposures can happen to ANYBODY so OC laws are worth a note. Thanks for all who have responded so far!
