    I tried but can't seem to find about places you can't carry legally. I live in Virginia. I know you can't carry a gun in churches, courthouses, airports and schools. Where else?
  2. Can't carry concealed in a place that is licensed as a club or restaurant by ABC.

    Can't carry where the property owner prohibits it.

    From the VA State Police web site:

    Where Unlawful to Carry

    §18.2-308 (J.3.): No person shall carry a concealed handgun onto the premises of any restaurant or club as defined in § 4.1-100 for which a license to sell and serve alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption has been granted by the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board under Title 4.1 of the Code of Virginia, nothing herein shall prohibit any sworn law-enforcement officer from carrying a concealed handgun on the premises of such restaurant or club or any owner or event sponsor or his employees from carrying a concealed handgun while on duty at such restaurant or club if such person has a concealed handgun permit.

    §18.2-308 (O.): Private property when prohibited by the owner of the property, or where posted as prohibited.

    §18.2-283: To a place of worship while a meeting for religious purposes is being held at such place, without good and sufficient reason.

    Was there some other code that prohibited carrying in the secured area of a police/law enforcement station, or am I imagining things that really arent there?
