I tried www.packing.org but can't seem to find about places you can't carry legally. I live in Virginia. I know you can't carry a gun in churches, courthouses, airports and schools. Where else?

Can't carry concealed in a place that is licensed as a club or restaurant by ABC.

Can't carry where the property owner prohibits it.

From the VA State Police web site:

Was there some other code that prohibited carrying in the secured area of a police/law enforcement station, or am I imagining things that really arent there?
