West Virginia “Permitless” Carry Law Takes Effect

West Virginia’s new “permitless” concealed-carry law took effect yesterday, marking a new era for concealed carry in the Mountain State.

As many A1F Daily readers will likely recall, the measure, House Bill 4145, does away with the permitting requirement for law-abiding West Virginians to carry concealed firearms for self-defense. 

The new law represents an unprecedented expansion of rights for law-abiding West Virginians. And according to NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s support of law-abiding gun owners was crucial to securing ultimate passage of permitless/constitutional carry in the state. His efforts to ensure that law-abiding gun owners are adequately informed on the law should, once again, be applauded.

West Virginia gun owners should take a few minutes to contact Attorney General Morrisey at (304) 558-2021 and thank him for supporting their right to keep and bear arms.
