Selecting laws to obey or defy

A Floyd County, Virginia, gun owner got mad because an employee of the Regal Cinema in Christiansburg told him to leave his gun locked in his car if he wanted to see a movie. “I’m the legal holder of a concealed carry permit and I can carry my gun anywhere I damn well please,” he posted on Facebook. No, he can’t. There are a number of places where he cannot carry a gun, even with a license. Regal, as a private business, can prohibit possession of firearms by the general public, even if they have a concealed permit or live in an “open carry” state, like Virginia. To prohibit weapons, they simply have to post a notice on the door saying firearms are not permitted.
