    Am I good to carry? I'd prefer to know before I get there.

    And before anyone asks, this is strictly a records thing. I'm not going on the dole.

    I do not live in Va., but If I am not sure of where I can carry in my state,
    or a particular venue, I always check with one of the online
    site's that spells out where it's legal and where not. We just
    had some changes in Ga. this last year about carrying on
    public transportation etc,. Better to be safe.
    Here's one.

    I guess my question is really more "does this count as federal property?" I know that I can't carry there, but if it is run by the state then it shouldn't matter.

    FWIW, I was in one recently and noticed the plainly visible sign stating firearms weren't permitted within the fed building. As I recall, I noticed that included within the sign's language was a line specifically stating something to the effect that state issued CCW licenses did not provide for an exemption to the fed law.

    Social Security offices are Federal; therefore, no CCW. I'm a retired LEO with the concealed weapons authorization via the Homeland Security Act and I am not permitted to carry into Federal buildings.

    This surprises me. Who do they let carry in the building if you can't? Only Secret Service or some such?

    The last SS office I was in in NC had a no firearms sign on the door and an armed guard inside. Probably best to at least leave it in the car.

    I recently visited the Social Security office in Prescott, AZ. They had a sign prohibiting weapons at the door. Also present was an armed security guard who made quite a big deal about rummaging through my wife's purse, to look for "weapons".

    If you need to visit a Social Security office, best leave your guns, knives, etc. secured in your vehicle.

    NO. Federal law prohibits carrying firearms into "federal facilities", which means a building in which federal employees are routinely engaged in their duties as such. Note that this applies in federal parks, and that has not been changed by the recent statute. So carrying in the ranger's information office is still a crime. It does not apply to places where the people working there are contractors or concessionaires, however, such as restaurants and gift shops.
