ILA | Virginia: Albemarle County Board of Supervisors Update

Gun News


Thank you to the Second Amendment supporters who gathered in front of the Albemarle County Office Building yesterday to oppose Ordinance No. 21-10’s ban of firearms in public places.

Yesterday, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved No. 21-10. The proposed ordinance prohibits firearms, ammunition, and components in county owned or operated buildings, parks, and recreation or community centers. While there is an exemption for firearms in private vehicles, they must be in a container or compartment, not carried while occupying the vehicle. There is also no exemption for concealed handgun permit holders. 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.

NRA-ILA is working hard to make sure we protect the rights our founders gave us in the constitution. More than ever, now is the time to join together and defend our Bill of Rights.
