Today, the Senate voted 33-1 to pass House Bill 4048, the WV Keep, Bear and Drive with Arms Act. It will now go back to the House for concurrence. Please ask your delegate to CONCUR with the Senate on HB 4048 WITHOUT further amendments.
House Bill 4048 affirms that it is lawful to possess loaded and/or uncased long guns in vehicles. This ensures that law-abiding citizens may carry the firearms of their choice, in the manner of their choosing, with them in vehicles. Given that West Virginia already has constitutional carry, law-abiding gun owners should be able to exercise their Second Amendment rights with long guns while traveling throughout the state.
Again, please respectfully urge your delegate to CONCUR with the Senate on HB 4048 WITHOUT further amendments.
Don’t forget to forward this email to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners and ask them also to email their delegate to respectfully urge him or her to CONCUR with the senate on HB 4048. West Virginia needs all its law-abiding gun-owners and Second Amendment supporters to help HB 4048 continue to move through the legislative process to the Governor’s desk!
