Williamsburg Merchant Squate

Is it legal with VA permit to carry concealed in Williamsburg Merchant Square or is the entire place a declared campus area? I searched the VA forum, but failed to find an answer.

It seems no different than Dick’s.

C. Entry upon university property in violation of this prohibition is expressly forbidden. Persons violating this prohibition will be asked to remove the weapon immediately from university property. Failure to comply with this request may result in arrest for trespass. Members of the university community are also subject to disciplinary action.

IANAL I’m not seeing how it’s different than carrying on private property. If you’re asked to leave, you leave. If you don’t leave, it’s trespassing.

Am I missing something?

Are you certain about that? The CW map shows CW as extending west only so far as Henry St. Everything west of Henry St. does not appear to be part of CW. I just don't see anything that confirms that Merchant Square is part of CW. For that matter, I see nothing on the W&M website that indicates that Merchant Square is part of the campus.

rambling_one -- you may want to call the local PD to get an answer, just to be safe.

Merchants square is on the Williamsburg foundation website. I don't think it has anything to do with the college.

Colonial Williamsburg police said sitting outside the shops is fine. If I wanted to go inside one, signage laws would apply; leave if requested to do so. Officer was very polite.

budman -- if you download the map from the link you provided, you'll see that CW's western boundary is shown as Henry Street. You are correct that the CW web site refers the viewer to Merchant's Square, but it makes no claim that Merchant's Square is part of CW. It may well be, but so far the most conclusive piece of evidence that I've seen on this point is CW's own map, which shows CW as extending no farther than Henry Street.
