Virginia's Attorney General Stands Up for the Second Amendment

Virginia's Attorney General Releases Opinion
Standing-Up for the Second Amendment!
October 1, 2008

Attorney General Bob McDonnell released an opinion in response to a request by State Senator Ken Cuccinelli (R-37) on whether or not the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation has the authority to regulate the open carrying of firearms in state parks.

In his official opinion, Attorney General McDonnell found that, "no specific statutory authority granting the Department the authority to prohibit the open carrying of firearms in state parks. A person's right to carry a firearm openly is considered universal within the Commonwealth, subject to definite and limited restrictions upon certain locations and classifications of individuals."  pdf AttyGenMcDonnell2ndAmend 01/10/2008,21:32 65.51 Kb
