Virginia’s Gun Rights: What You Need to Know

Presenter - Sarah Gervase

So you think you know Virginia gun laws? Well, you may, but everyone will learn a thing or two from this seminar. We will focus primarily on carrying in Virginia and things everyone should know to stay out of trouble. Topics will include obtaining a concealed carry permit, prohibited locations, reciprocity with other states, open carry, and the laws surrounding the use of deadly force. Participants at the seminar will have the opportunity to ask questions and to share their experiences.
