West Virginia: House Committee Passes Firearms Preemption Bill

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Yesterday, NRA-backed House Bill 2760, sponsored by Delegate Rupie Phillips (D-24), passed by a voice vote in the state House Judiciary Committee.

HB 2760 would strengthen current firearms preemption laws by removing existing “grandfather” clauses for certain localities to ensure a uniform set of firearms laws statewide.  This would eliminate provisions that create confusion and inconsistency for law-abiding citizens such as the three-day waiting period for handgun purchases in Charleston.

This is long overdue legislation for residents and businesses in cities like Charleston and Martinsburg who have been subject to unreasonable and restrictive local rules and regulations on legal firearms.  The NRA thanks bill sponsor Delegate Phillips and the committee members who voted in favor of this pro-gun reform bill for Second Amendment supporters across the Mountain State.

HB 2760 now goes to the floor of the House of Delegates within the next few days.  We need you to call and e-mail your state Delegate(s) TODAY and respectfully ask them to vote YES on HB 2760.  Please hold your state legislator accountable by politely asking them how they plan to vote on HB 2760.

Phone numbers and emails for your state legislator can be found here.
