So, I'm leaving the library yesterday......

And this guy is OPEN CARRYING on the way in.....


I didn't stick around to see if they asked him to leave, or not. I had to get home, eat, and clean up for church service.....

But, he was OPEN CARRYING.....


IN PUBLIC!!!!!


But he forgot to put this on:

Maybe the guy had an overdue book or video. When it comes to overdue books and videos, you know how tough those lady liberians can get!

doesnt VA have preemption?? I doubt he could be asked to leave a publicly owned library. I know even quasi government entities such as Waterside can not ban individuals from carrying

Well, yeah. I didn't take that into account. The library is a CITY DEPARTMENT

I forget where I saw the pic originally. The model is GeckoGirl. She is kind of well-known around some Second Amendment forums......

Why is the library different from anyplace else? It is not federal property, or a country courthouse, or VCU or GMU.

Didn't mean to even IMPLY it was wrong in any way. Just the first time I had seen someone do it. At the library.

Maybe he was a cop?

But anyway, what was your first mental reaction / thought / emotion to seeing this?

Some girl stabbed me with her pencil at the public library. She heard my brother say someone was fat and thought I said it about her. Didn't hurt as bad as getting bonked by a girl and her metal lunch box but I did squeal loud enough an adult hushed me. Libraries can be dangerous.

I am sure I said NOTHING to offend you. Now take that back!!!!!


The only thing I can OC at present would draw attention at the library or anywhere else. All I own right now is an AR-15.


I just noticed {for the first time} someone OC-ing somewhere I had never noticed someone doing it before. I swear I did not mean for it to sound like I am against it or something. Anybody who got that idea, GOT THE WRONG IDEA


God, Can't even comment about stuff that happens at the library any more.

Last time I reported something happening, the thread got locked.

Trust me, open carry is easier up here than in several other parts of Virginia. I know, I have been doing it for five years all over this area with only one negative encounter. And that was from a customer in a McDonald's. He claimed he was a retired LEO but judging from his accent, he was from somewhere up in the northeast.

Open Carry is easy here, too.


I have seen it:

In Wally World
In Home Depot
In Food Lion
In Krogers
In Dominion Outdoors {OBVIOUSLY}

Just made a passing comment that this was the first time I saw someone do it here at the library.
