West Virginia House of Delegates Overturns Veto of Concealed Carry Bill


The West Virginia House of Delegates overturned Gov. Tomblin’s veto of the concealed carry bill by a vote of 64-33. The Senate will likely follow.

On Thursday Gov. Tomblin vetoed the bill, surrounded by law enforcement from across the state.

The governor says the bill puts law enforcement in even more danger. 

The bill would take effect in late May and would allow those 21 and older to carry a concealed gun without a permit.

Anyone 18 to 20 years old will have to get a permit and go through training with live firing.

Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, Maine, Vermont and Wyoming similarly don’t require concealed carry permits.
