ILA | Virginia: Loudoun County Voting on Gun Ban

Gun News


At the March 2nd Business Meeting, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors will hold a vote on an ordinance banning firearms in certain public places. Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to OPPOSE Item 09 on the agenda. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting is to be held electronically. Citizens may signup to speak remotely, over phone or video conference, no later than noon the day of the hearing. Information may be found here.

In addition, you may click the “Take Action” button below to contact Board of Supervisors members directly.


Item 09 prohibits firearms, ammunition, and components in county owned public buildings, public parks, recreational centers, and parts of buildings being used for governmental purposes. There is an exemption for concealed handgun permit holders to conceal carry certain types of firearms in parks only. While there is an exemption for storing such items in locked vehicles, they must be secured out of sight. Because this ban includes “components,” citizens may find themselves in legal trouble for accidentally entering one of these “gun-free zones” with something as simple as a shell casing forgotten in a pocket or accidentally left in view in a vehicle.

The only enforcement mechanism guaranteed in the proposed ordinance is to post signs notifying of the prohibition at all entrances at such properties. There is no mandate that the county must keep disarmed citizens safe by providing active measures, such as metal detectors or security guards, to exclude armed criminals from these “gun-free zones.”

Again, please contact the Board of Supervisors and ask them to OPPOSE Item 09.

  1. 650347 35569OK first take a excellent look at your self. What do you like what do you not like so significantly. Work on that which you do not like. But do not listen to other folks their opinions do not matter only yours does. Work on having the attitude that this really is who you are and if they dont like it they can go to hell. 195550
