    RE: Virginia State Forest Regulations Amendment (4 VAC 10 - 30 -170)

    The Department of Forestry appreciates your comments and questions regarding the proposed amendment to the Virginia State Forest Regulations.

    The proposed regulatory amendment would lift the prohibition on lawfully carrying open and concealed firearms in Virginia State Forests.

    Throughout every phase of this regulatory process, the overwhelming majority of commenters supported the amendment to lift the prohibition against the lawful carrying of open and concealed firearms. The administration also supports the action.

    On April 4, 2011, the Department of Forestry officially submitted its Final Regulation for Executive review. The Final Regulation eliminates the prohibition of lawfully carried open and concealed firearms in State Forests.
