Bus Service Firearms Policy In Limbo

posted on September 14, 2015

A Virginia bus service, which had a no-firearms policy, has reversed course after an altercation between two men resulted in one pulling a handgun and trying unsuccessfully to shoot the other.

After the incident, media reported that Valley Metro, which services Roanoke, Va., had a policy dictating a total prohibition on firearm carry. Kevin Price, a manager for Valley Metro, then clarified the policy, stating the ban was on the open carry of firearms, not concealed carry with a permit.

Roanoke and bus service officials are weighing their options and considering their next move. In the meantime, the company’s website, which formerly had a “Do’s and Don’ts” section that included the firearms prohibition, has been deleted and replaced with a notice that the site is “currently under reconstruction.”
