West Virginia: Senate Committee to Hear Firearms Preemption Bill Tomorrow

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Tomorrow, Senate Bill 317, sponsored by state Senator John Unger (D-16), is expected to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  SB 317 passed with a substitute in the Senate Government Organization Committee early last week.  We are working with state legislators to craft the substitute in a way that is most advantageous to firearm owners in the Mountain State and expect resolution of its language in the coming days.  SB 317 is a statewide firearms preemption bill which would bring Charleston and three other cities that currently have and enforce local gun control ordinances into uniformity with the rest of the state.  SB 317 would establish in statute what the amendment to last year’s Home Rule hoped to accomplish but without the necessity of an "opt in" provision.  Using the contact information provided below, please call and e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary Committee today and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 317.
