West Virginia: Concealed Carry Reciprocity with Wisconsin Made Official

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced that government officials of Wisconsin and West Virginia have worked out a formal reciprocity agreement where each state will honor concealed carry permits issued by the other.

While West Virginia has had constitutional carry since 2016 with the enactment of House Bill 4145, residents of West Virginia still often obtain concealed carry permits in order to take advantage of reciprocity agreements in order to carry in other states.  Wisconsin has previously, informally recognized concealed carry permits from West Virginia.  This agreement codifies this previous arrangement.

Your NRA applauds the efforts of officials from both Wisconsin and West Virginia as they work to ensure their citizens may exercise their Second Amendment rights as they travel to each other’s states.
