Pro-Gun, Pro-Hunting Bill Passes West Virginia Senate!

Friday, February 22, 2008

On Monday, February 18 the State Senate passed Senate Bill 9, introduced by State Senator Billy Wayne Bailey (D-9), by a 29-3 margin.  SB9 would mandate firearm and hunter safety education programs be offered in public schools for students in the eighth through twelfth grades.  However, it would not be mandatory that students take the course.  This is important legislation that will teach children to hunt safely and ethically from an early age.  They will also learn how to handle firearms safely while hunting, while participating in sport competitions, or at home.  Completion of the course will enable students to obtain their hunting licenses.

SB9 has been assigned to the House Education Committee.  Please contact the members of the committee and respectfully urge them to support this important hunter/firearm education legislation.
