If you’re planning a trip to Virginia, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to bring your gun.
The commonwealth’s Attorney General Mark Herring announced Tuesday that concealed carry permits from 25 states won’t be valid in Virginia, saying the states don’t have tough enough standards for gun ownership.
Virginia had reciprocity agreements with 30 states regarding concealed carry laws, but only Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia were deemed tough enough on issuing permits.
