ScottyMacEsq : Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
ScottyMacEsq : # XXXXX felons and adjudicated delinquents may not possess or transport Tasers within Virginia. Former felons must petition a judge for a possession permit for such weapons. Those former felons found guilty of possessing or transporting a Taser could face up to five years in prison if they were convicted of a violent felony. Nonviolent felons can face up to two years in prison. Tasers are also not permitted on school grounds, at school-sanctioned events or on school buses. Using or displaying a Taser on school property commands a mandatory minimum prison sentence of five years.Tasers are legal for purchase by consumers Virginia. You don't even need to attend training or apply for a special license. They are meant for self-defense only.
ScottyMacEsq : So long as you're not a felon, you can carry and transport a taser without registering.

JACUSTOMER-guh0pokx- :

how can I check if I,m a adjudicted delinquent?

ScottyMacEsq : Were you ever arrested and convicted of anything when you were a minor?
JACUSTOMER-guh0pokx- :

Not when i was a minor, but once for a DWI for a night and once for disorderly contact

ScottyMacEsq : Adjudicated delinquency is for minors. So if you were not arrested and convicted when you were a minor, then you don't have to worry.
JACUSTOMER-guh0pokx- :

I'm also not a citizen I have a Investment Visa E-2 and I'm here since 1988

ScottyMacEsq : Your alien status has no bearing on this law. Anyone can carry BUT felons and adjudicated delinquents.
JACUSTOMER-guh0pokx- :

So, I'm ok

ScottyMacEsq : Yes. Just don't bring it on school grounds, school buses, etc..
ScottyMacEsq : If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please select the "accept" button. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good luck to you!
JACUSTOMER-guh0pokx- :

So I can print this chat for prove??

ScottyMacEsq : Let me help you with that. I will change this from chat format to the Q&A format. You can print that like any web page. Once you are able to do that, go to File > Print Preview and change the scale to 80% (so you don't cut off the margins). Once you print, change it back to 100%.
