Message from Phillip Wiglesworth - FL in Charlottesville 2.0 #virginia_laws
I make homemade torches with lengths of aluminum tubing. Does anyone know if it would be illegal to carry those in the rally and/or if it's legal to wield it in self-defense?
What are the va laws on self defense? Of course we aren't going to start anything but at what point is it okay to react to the left's assaults
If you reasonably fear death (gun pointed at you) or have been seriously harmed or injured, you are legally allowed to defend yourself by all means. Keep in mind that this will be a huge event and that it won't be as easy to make a case
Also, VA is a stand your ground state
Virginia is a stand your ground state .
Virginia is a stand your ground state
Thanks to whoever deleted that. Not your fault, Virginia can be weird with some laws
@Aaron - VA
Thanks when did that get changed? When I got my VA CCW a few years ago they told us that VA wasn't.
Your article was mostly correct though. You more than likely can't just have a gun waved at you and you can then blast them away. But if you were violently beaten , or were shot at , you have the right to defend yourself by all means. Depends how much of a jew your lawyer is
USCCA offers self defense insurance, buy it
Is it legal to carry a club openly? Like a police baton?
Don't carry anything that's explicitly a weapon. Flag poles and signs work, but openly carrying obvious weaponry is probably not a good idea. @Spaceman (DSB)
Waving a gun at you is criminal menacing/brandishing (note that there's a difference between open carry and brandishing). Should be okay to defend yourself in that situation
36" rattan flag poles okay?
Not that I think any of us are felons, but:
It is **illegal** for felons in Virginia to concealed carry stun guns **except** within their own homes or after having their rights restored by a judge.
This question doesn't pertain to Virginia specifically, but I've heard there are state laws which were created back in the Cold War to protect leftists from getting fired simply for their political affiliations. I'm wondering which states have these laws in case many of us get doxxed at this event.
It's federal statute that prohibits discrimination based on political beliefs.
-in the workplace
The Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA)
Now of course that specifically applies to gov't jobs, but almost every state had adopted it to apply to private sector, too. EEOC would know which states don't. Can look there
Anybody know if it's legal to open carry a baton? It looks like it's illegal to cc it
I believe it is legal. Spring-loaded baton is illegal
Gravity is good tho?
@junker many many goys are carrying guns, I see no problem with carrying a billyclub, my question wasn't of optics its of legality
Conceal carry is way different than walking into a crowd with a club, as far as optics go.
Is bear mace acceptable defence in VA law?
I wouldn't use bear mace, get standard OC spray. I personally use Fox Labs.
@Vice Commander Hunt To answer your question regarding batons; Carrying spring-loaded baton is illegal, but other batons are legal. But those batons that are legal I recommend that you open carry them as Virginia law is very vague regarding concealed carry of a baton.
Its best to avoid batons in my opinion, I would just get hardwood dowel (that fits in your hand) from a store and cut it to size.
For a flagpole
32-36 inches is optimal flagpole soze
anyoene know if burning antifa flags/LGBT pride flags/etc would be legal? or would they get you for arson on a public land
my guess is theyd stop it
You'd get in trouble
