Concealed Carry Coming to the University of Virginia?

Virginia’s ultra-conservative Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, makes headlines again this week over a decision on concealed carry. A few months after taking office in January 2010, Cuccinelli created waves for filing a lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of the Federal Health Care bill, claiming that it exceeded the Federal government's power under the interstate commerce clause of the Constitution. In August 2010, Cuccinelli then issued an Arizona SB1070-esque legal opinion authorizing law enforcement officials to investigate the immigration status of anyone they pull over.
