West Virginia: Self-Defense Legislation to be Heard by Senate Committee

Tomorrow, Senate Bill 388 will be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee.  SB 388, sponsored by state Senator Dave Sypolt (R-14), would allow West Virginia concealed weapons permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense while dropping off or picking up students on school property, as long as the firearm does not leave the motor vehicle.  Please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to SUPPORT SB 388.

 

Current West Virginia law prevents firearms from being carried or transported onto school property, including by those who don’t step foot out of their car.  Individuals who are legally allowed to carry a firearm for self-defense should not be barred from doing so while dropping off or picking up their kids from school.
