In a nutshell, WV already does NOT require you to have a permit to carry a pistol openly. This bill goes even further. It requires no pistol permit… EVER.
You simply have your 2nd Amendment rights.
(Yes there are certain rules about churches, schools, and if a business owner posts a sign, etc) However, the point is you can’t be charged for just carrying a pistol.
The Governor tried to veto the bill.
The Senate overrode it and it’s now in place.
Congratulations West Virginia!
You now join seven other states that already recognize the rights of citizens under the US Constitution.
Alaska since 2003
Arizona since 2010
Wyoming since 2011
Arkansas since 2013
Maine since 2015
Vermont since 1787 (It has always been a free carry state)
