West Virginia: Pro-Gun Bills Advance from Committees

Yesterday, committees in both chambers of the West Virginia Legislature voted to advance the pro-gun bills before them. Senate Bill 458 protects Second Amendment rights during emergencies, and House Bill 2793 establishes a nonresident carry permit. These bills now go to the floors of their respective chambers for further consideration.

Please click the “Take Action” button below to ask your state senator to SUPPORT SB 458.

Senate Bill 458 prohibits the state, government officials and agencies, or local governments from restricting the lawful carrying, sale, or use of firearms and ammunition during states of emergencies. The prohibition also prevents them from closing gun stores and shooting ranges, unless that restriction applies equally to all businesses. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many anti-gun officials around the country, at both state and local levels of government, took the opportunity to unilaterally suspend Second Amendment rights by shutting down gun stores and ranges. This bill protects the exercise of a constitutional right from such politically motivated attacks and ensures that citizens have those rights when they need them most. 

House Bill 2793 creates the option of a nonresident West Virginia concealed carry permit. This allows nonresidents to apply to take advantage of West Virginia’s comprehensive reciprocity agreements with other states.
