On February 12th, House Bill 4955 was introduced to reduce the application fee for a License to Carry Deadly Weapons (LCDW). Please contact your state Delegate and ask them to SUPPORT HB 4955.
House Bill 4955 reduces the current $75 fee for a LCDW to $25 and even eliminates the fee for honorably discharged military veterans. West Virginia already has constitutional carry allowing law-abiding adults to carry a handgun to defend themselves and their loved ones without first having to pay fees or obtain government permission, but that ends at the state line. Many West Virginians still choose to get a LCDW in order to be able to exercise their right to carry in other states that recognize West Virginia’s permit. This fee reduction helps ensure that West Virginians of any financial means are able to defend themselves when traveling.
Again, please contact your state Delegate and ask them to SUPPORT HB 4955.
