West Virginia: Permitless Carry to Go Into Effect on May 24

by WOA Admin May 09, 2016

The enactment of House Bill 4145, West Virginia’s Permitless Carry legislation, represents an unprecedented expansion of rights for law-abiding West Virginians.  It is also unprecedented in its path to eventual enactment. House Bill 4145 overwhelmingly passed both chambers of the Legislature on February 24, 2016.  Governor Tomblin then waited the full constitutionally permitted time-period before he vetoed the legislation on March 3, 2016.  Two days later, on March 5, 2016, the West Virginia Senate concurred with the House’s veto override vote the previous day and reaffirmed their support of HB 4145.  After this significant victory for law-abiding, responsible gun owners in West Virginia, everyone’s immediate attention turned to deciphering when HB 4145 would go into effect.
