|VA: Loudoun Supervisors Send Govít Building Gun Ban to Public Hearing|
Submitted by:†email@example.com">Mark A. Taff
As written, the regulation would ban firearms and ammunition from buildings or part of a buildings controlled by the county government, any county public park, any county recreation or community center, and any parts of any building being used for a governmental purposes, such as polling places during voting. It would not apply to sworn law enforcement, private security hired for county-permitted special events, active duty military conducting their official duties, historical reenactments, and managed hunts. Firearms could be stored out of sight in a locked private vehicle.
|If the county wishes to ban guns inside its buildings, D.C. v. Heller recognizes their power to do so. However, in order for it to be constitutional, they must have effective screening at all public entrances and provide secure storage onsite for those with valid carry permits to insure visitors have the ability to protect themselves to/from the facility.|
People donít visit government buildings unless they have to. It isnít like private businesses, where people are exercising volition to enter the property and can patronize a different business instead.
