West Virginia: Senate Passes Bill to Create Nonresident Carry Permit

Gun Rights

Today, the Senate voted 34-0 to pass House Bill 2793, to create the option of a nonresident West Virginia concealed carry permit. Unlike most neighboring states, West Virginia does not have a nonresident carry permit option. Though visitors to West Virginia, who are legally eligible, may already carry a handgun without first applying for government permission, many still seek to obtain a permit to take advantage of reciprocity. West Virginia’s comprehensive reciprocity agreements would make its permit an attractive option, if it had a nonresident permit to offer.

HB 2793 now goes back to the House for concurrence. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.
