West Virginia Governor Signs Important Pro-Gun Bill!

Friday, April 4, 2008

Please Thank Governor Manchin Today!

Earlier this week Governor Joe Manchin (D) signed Senate Bill 9, introduced by State Senator Billy Wayne Bailey (D-9).  SB9 will mandate firearm and hunter safety education programs offered in public schools for students in grades eight through twelve; however, it would not be mandatory that students take the course.  This important legislation 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. 

Please contact Governor Manchin and thank him for preserving your Second Amendment rights.  The Governor can be reached by phone at (304) 558-2000 or email Governor@WVGov.org.
