Looks like it will soon be legal to carry concealed weapons in bars in Virginia, despite the last-ditch appeal to the Regent from the Commonwealth’s police chiefs.

McDonnell will sign the bill, said Taylor Thornley, the governor’s spokeswoman. While McDonnell appreciates the work and comments of the police chiefs, he will “continue to protect and uphold the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens,” Thornley said.

The bill deals only with concealed weapons; in Virginia it’s legal to carry a gun openly without a permit.

If the weapon is concealed, how is the barkeep to know that the customer is packin’?

    Oh for Pete’s sake. Consider this:

    Young man, 21, 22…….
    Potential drugs
    Add gun

    Duck (not the quacking kind)

    I presume the barkeep will have his own double barrel behind the bar, within easy reach.
