The Need For ID

I started out for an evening walk and realized I had not put my wallet in my pocket. I did have my concealed handgun, which meant I was required to have both a picture ID and my concealed handgun permit. It occurred to me that all I had to do was tuck my shirt behind the gun, and I would be open carrying, thus no was CHP needed.

I chuckled at the absurdity, and further realized that according to Virginia law, it was actually legal for me to enter a pub and enjoy a beer while open carrying. However, with no ID I wouldn't be able to prove I was of legal age to buy alcohol.

It seems the only thing one can do these days with no ID is vote.


  1. It seems the only time one's required to provide ID these days is when they're accused of something ... so if that's case, then make it worthwhile.
