Virginia forests now allow guns
You can still enjoy the great Virginia outdoors; now, your gun can, too.
On Friday, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell modified the state's gun code to allow open or concealed firearms in the commonwealth's public forests, the Washington Examiner reports.
In 2008, then-Attorney General McDonnell wrote an opinion that guns should be allowed in state forests, arguing that the Department of Conservation and Recreation lacked the authority to enforce the prohibition on firearms. Gov. Tim Kaine rejected the opinion, and continued enforcing the law. The new change was proposed earlier this year.
Last month, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wrote an opinion stating that guns could be allowed in places of worships. The opinion has no legal standing, and the state's code will need to be changed before churches can include firing ranges.
