I have spent a lot of time in Virginia and whenever traveling there, I’ve legally carried my concealed firearm.  Following the procedure I outline in my LTC course, I fly with my firearm in checked luggage and then put on my pistol and holster usually before I leave the rental car facility.  Virginia has historically allowed open carry as well as concealed carry.  But now, a new liberal Democrat government has control of both houses of the Legislature and a governor so liberal that he would give Barak Hussein Obama a run for his money.  He wants to actually confiscate legally owned firearms in the State.  If this liberal government succeeds in making Virginians think that they have the authority to usurp the Constitutional protection against government infringing on the rights of citizens to own firearms, then Virginia will turn into a crime-ridden state and Democrats will be to blame.  Check out the excellent analysis by Tim Lambert.
