    Help With Va....

    Good morning everyone!

    Seeing that I promised myself that I would never live in a restrictive state like MD ever again, the prospect of a new position in the Arlington, Va area has presented itself.

    As I research the Va CCW regulations, I see that I am okay for getting a permit, once I get settled.

    What I cannot seem to find is whether or not there is a ban on assault style weapons, and high capicity magazines (both rifle and handgun).

    My last thought is about the one gun purchase a month regulation. Does that apply to CCW holders and does that apply to rifles too?

    Thanks in advance.

    You are fine, there is no ban on hi cap mags or assault type weapons.

    With your Virginia CCW permit, there is no limit on purchases, you don't have to wait a month in between purchases!

    What about muzzle suppressors/silencers?

    What is not allowed in VA?
    What may need special permits?

    Actually, there are a few cities where there is a cap on magazine size. Get the gun laws guide for VA for specifics. I think Richmond is one of those cities. But the put it specific like no more than 20rds on concealed carry. etc...

    the shop owner will ask you if you have bought one within the last month. There is no restriction on buying it, but the dealer has to make note of it

    You can carry open, without a permit. You MUST carry open - at least until 1 July 2010 - while in a restrurant that sells booze by the glass.

    What happens on July 1 2010?

    Significance of 1 July 2010

    That is the date that laws take effect in Virginia. If the state legislators again approve, and the Governor just elected does what he has he will, it will be legal to carry concealed while being in establishments selling alcohol by the drink. Now you have go open, and you can drink.


    The departing governor, Kaine, vetoed it the last time it came up. He moved on to be the Democratic National Chairman....
