Bill to remove permit requirement for concealed carry introduced in West Virginia.HB 4235 also partially strengthens preemption, cleans up confusing and contradictory hunting laws regulating handguns, restores firearm rights to individuals who have received a pardon, expungement, or certain forms of relief from disabilities for a disqualifying crime, and maintains optional concealed weapon licenses for West Virginians to be able to carry in other states via reciprocity.

Currently, only Alaska and Vermont recognize the right to carry without a license.

Alaska issues optional permits for reciprocity purposes in other states, as would HB 4235. Learn more
