ILA | West Virginia: Governor Signs Important Preemption Bill

Gun News

Today, Governor Jim Justice signed Senate Bill 96 to strengthen West Virginia’s preemption law.

Senate Bill 96 prevents municipalities from restricting a number of tools that law-abiding citizens carry with them every day. It also repeals the concealed carry permit requirement to carry at fairs and festivals from the current preemption law. Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws that turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.

The NRA would like to thank the West Virginia Citizens Defense league for their extensive efforts, KnifeRights for their support, and Gov. Justice for signing this important bill into law.
