West Virginia: Pro-Gun Legislation to be Heard in Senate Committee Tomorrow

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Tomorrow, Senate Bill 298, introduced by state Senator John Unger II (D-16), is scheduled to be heard in the West Virginia Senate Natural Resources Committee.  SB 298 will clarify the distinction between hunters and shooters in the field and would allow shooters who are in possession of a firearm, in or near the woods, to be protected from unnecessary interference by a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officer based solely on possession of a firearm.  This Senate committee is scheduled to meet at 2:00 p.m. in Room 451M of the state Capitol.  Using the contact information provided below, please contact members of this Senate committee and urge them to support SB 298.
