Thread: Restaurant Ban

  1. correct, in VA, any place with an ABC to "serve" alcohol for onsite consumption, you are required to carry open. I do it at some buffets (usually Chinese) and other places, and so far haven't had any issues, just had a worker question me and my friend as to why we were open carrying (of course they have no idea it's the law haha) and i had one patron at a buffet complain but i was like, oh well, sorry you don't want you child to see a responsible citizen being responsible :)

    Thats whats so weird about Virginia. The more in-your-face method of carrying is preferred over the out-of-sight method. But then again little in the gun control agenda makes sense.

    It would be nice if all states would agree with Nevada on this one; I hate having to remember to check whether a place serves alcohol or not when I'm out of state.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    I think the intent of the law was to be able to instantly alert restaurant owners that someone is packing to give the staff the opportunity to tell the permit holder to either leave the premises or put the gun in the car. I think it was intended to discourage restaurant carry because of this.

    I could be wrong, but what I think it is...You can OC in Virgina without a permit and places that serve alcohol were just never listed as an off-limits place. Then when VA passed the CCW law, they added places that serve alcohol to the list of off-limits places with a CCW. Sort of either forgetting about or ignoring that it was still legal to OC there.

    Just like some states (not sure if VA is one or not) where OC is legal without a permit, you can OC at 18, but you have to be 21 to get a CCW.

    Personally I think all 50 states should just go with the VT method...no permit at all for OC or CC.
