Yesterday, the West Virginia Senate passed Senate Bill 575 by a 22-11 vote. Sponsored by state Senators Charles Trump (R-15) and Craig Blair (R-15), SB 575 protects sport shooting ranges from frivolous law suits and noise complaints. SB 575 now moves to the West Virginia House of Delegates where it awaits committee assignment. Please contact your Delegate and urge them to SUPPORT SB 575 when it comes up for a vote.
SB 575 seeks to protect sport shooting ranges from legal actions which aim to restrict or prohibit range usage. In the past, anti-gun activists have used frivolous law suits and noise complaints to put legally operating sport shooting ranges out of business. If a range is in full compliance with the law, it should not be subjected to unreasonable court fees, hiatus or closure of operation.
