At least bring the brero
My ascot is at the cleaners. Stained with Campari, such a shame. Does anyone have one to spare?
If you wear that mask you're an arrested
I wouldn't suggest dual wielding revolvers either.
What would y'all recommend for melee?
mines coming along
Obviously cover the police
Those AC hats are slick
I need black duct tape
Staples has lots of colored and patterned duct tape. Likely have black.
2 foot length of detachable broom stick affixed to inside of shield allowed?
Dude who would have the answer to such a specific question?"
our resident keyboard attorneys of course
I think that may be considered concealed @Melektaus, but it doesn't look like batons are illegal unless spring loaded. I'm certainly no expert on Virginia laws pertaining to carrying sticks, though.
i have a 16" expandable baton I'd love to carry, but seems the law is intentionally vague about what defines spring loaded
Yeah, I wouldn't risk that without confirming with someone who knows more about their laws
I'm wondering if a sound course of action - provided one isn't going to be part of an actual shield wall - is to fashion a shield small/light enough to prove an effective striking tool, should the need arise. Something smaller than a Norse round shield, or the typical kite and heater shields, but probably larger than a true buckler.
Then there's no question of offensive intent from the standpoint of a third party. You're just the "unfortunate" soul whose shield was too small and had to improvise. 😉
There's this nigger in our town that walks around with a shovel handle all the time. For years and years. I call him hoe handle nigger. Nobody says dick to him. LOL
not even open carry?
Collapsible batons are viewed as an attack-only weapon. Carrying one makes you appear to be a combatant
so just a shield with bolts sticking out of it and pepper spray then
I would be wary of carrying expandable ASP batons FYI
Asps. Very dangerous.
So that's a no on the pocket snakes then?
The expandable baton law is purposefully written so as to give the prosecutor and police great leeway in how it is interpreted. The application of the law depends on the officer, the situation, and the DA's decision. In other words there is no telling how it will play out until it does.
Do not bring ASPs and expandible batons
that is so subjective you can be fucked in a moment with it even if cop is on your side the city can push against it
*ie they will)
Does anyone need a shield?
But it's ok to open carry a knife 🤔
Please no one come dressed like a power ranger
This minus the plate carrier.
