West Virginia: Pro-Gun Bills on the Move in Charleston

The Mountain State has continued its rich tradition of supporting your Second Amendment rights and hunting and shooting traditions through the introduction of multiple pro-gun bills during its 2013 legislative session.

Last Friday, the House of Delegates voted unanimously to pass House Bill 2471. HB 2471, sponsored by House Speaker Rick Thompson (D-19), seeks to prohibit restrictions on the lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage or display of a firearm or ammunition during any declared state of emergency. HB 2471 has been sent to the state Senate where it was assigned to the Senate Government Organization Committee. Senate Bill 330, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader John Unger (D-16), is the Senate companion bill.

A number of other NRA-backed bills have been introduced and are on the move this session. Your NRA is tirelessly working through the legislative process with solidly pro-gun legislators to protect your Second Amendment rights in Charleston:

House Bill 2135, sponsored by Delegate Gary Howell (R-56), would allow the holder of a valid Concealed Pistol/Revolver Permit to keep a loaded firearm locked in their vehicle on State Capitol Complex grounds.

        did you hear about the Russian soldiers dressed in DHS uniforms and driving armored vehicles were stopped by Tennessee National Guard when they tried to cross the border from Kentucky? These are UN authorized soldiers –
