W.V. House Passes “Permitless” Carry Measure

posted on February 16, 2016

Lawmakers in West Virginia have again approved a “permitless” concealed-carry measure that would deregulate the right to carry in the state.

HB 4145 passed the House on a 68-32 vote. If the bill is passed and signed into law, West Virginia would become the seventh state to not require permits for law-abiding adults to carry concealed firearms for self-defense. “None of the states with permitless concealed-carry laws has descended into chaos,” said Republican Delegate Eric Householder.

While W.V. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed a similar bill last year and has indicated he would likely veto this measure, supporters hope they can get enough votes to override a veto.
