It’s a felony for an adult to wear a mask in public in Virginia? Man that’s harsh. I take it they don’t celebrate Halloween or Mardi Gras there? Costume parties must be forbidden too? I know in some Canadian Provinces it’s against the law to wear a mask while going armed, but an ordinance like that makes more sense (sorry Lone Ranger).

A 31-year-old man in Virginia was arrested and charged with wearing a mask in public Friday after he was spotted walking around dressed as the iconic comic book supervillain the Joker, police said.
Police in Winchester—located about 75 miles northwest of Washington, D.C.—said the Winchester Emergency Communications Center received "several calls" around 2 p.m. on Friday of a suspicious male wearing a black cape and carrying a sword walking around the city.
