The next conference folks might want to sign up for is the 7 OCT 2006 "Firearms Law & the Second Amendment Symposium," at GMU in Arlington, VA.
Given that the AG's college carry opinion at http://www.vcdl.org/pdf/OP-05-078.pdf
states that "The right to carry openly has not been revoked by the General Assembly," maybe we should open carry at the conference on camnpus?[suP]
