West Virginia: Firearms Preemption Improvement Bill Passes House

Monday, March 11, 2013

Today, NRA-backed House Bill 2760, sponsored by Delegate Rupie Phillips (D-24), passed in the House of Delegates by a 94-4 vote.

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 gun rationing and a 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 other members of the House who voted in favor of this pro-gun reform bill to benefit gun owners across the Mountain State.  HB 2760 now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

We need you to call and e-mail your state Senator TODAY and respectfully ask him or her to vote YES on HB 2760.  Please hold your state Senator accountable by politely asking them how they plan to vote on HB 2760.

Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.  Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your e-mail inbox for further legislative updates.
