Virginia appeals court blocks photo ID requirement for carry

WTKRThe Virginia Court of Appeals ruled that Circuit Courts cannot require a photo ID with a concealed handgun permit application.

An attorney in the case announced that his client won in his challenge on whether the Norfolk Circut Court could require a photo ID as a part of the Concealed handgun Permit (CHP) Application.

It's worth noting that this is a somewhat deceptive summary. The ruling is that the lower court itself cannot require a photo ID since that is not a requirement under state law. If state law did require it, there wouldn't be a problem. This is more a case of slapping down a judge who overstepped his authority than a fundamental 2nd Amendment decision.
