    LAW FOR BACKPACKERS 101

    The file that is "attached" here is the final version of my full Law for Backpackers 101 article, that began as a series of summarizations of topics with a lot of message debate in the "Straight Forward" Forum. It's in Adobe PDF format, which is easy to open, but if you can't, it is probably because you don't have Adobe "Reader." If that's the case, it's available on the Internet for free at Adobe.com.

    If anyone has suggestions, I welcome them, and comments about anything in here - pro or con - are welcome.

    I'd also appreciate you voting in the Poll above. It helps me with considering revisions.

    I hope this is useful to you. Thanks for letting me try.

      At the top of your screen should be a blue heading, "Click here to read the entire article." That will take you to the top of the thread. Then you should see, on the left side, a heading "Law for Backpackers 101" showing it is a PDF file. Click on that and it will open.

      At the top of my screen? No such thing/link that I see. Shall I do a screen capture and email it to you? Would that help?

      Rain Man, the link is just above the green "articles menu" top left. Works for me in both firefox and explorer.

      Hey Weasle as requested reposting some remarks here --

      I read your article and realize that from a legal standpoint, as well as the reality that there are 50 different state laws to contend with, but I was wishing there was more to section #5 on weapons. You may want to note for example that Federal law will change in February 2010 to bring National Park Service regulations on weapons in line with state laws making concealed weapons legal in NPS sites located states where concealed carry is legal.

      Also I know this is only for Virginia, but here is a link to the Virginia State Police website on firearms -- http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms.shtm. From that link there is information on what states Virginia grants reciprocity or recognition for permit holders from other states. There is a link on Virginia laws pretaining to firearms.

      I use FireFox, but I don't even see a "green articles menu top left."

      Any way to do a screen capture and email it to me? Maybe your screen set-up is somehow different than mine?
