Meanwhile In Wset Virginia


I'm not a fan of our governor, however-

Recently (4/8/2021) Governor Jim Justice signed House Bill 2499, to exempt firearms and ammunition from state sales and use taxes, and House Bill 2793, to create the option of a nonresident West Virginia concealed carry permit. These bills take effect in 90 days

Yesterday (4/21/21), Governor Jim Justice signed Senate Bill 458 into law. It prohibits the state, government officials and agencies, or local governments, from restricting the lawful carrying, sale, or use of firearms and ammunition during states of emergency and also prevents them from closing gun stores and shooting ranges, unless that restriction applies equally to all businesses.

No word on House Bill 2694 known as the "Second Amendment Preservation Act." The measure would prevent state law enforcement agencies from working with federal agencies in “the investigation or enforcement of alleged violations of federal firearm laws which are not also violations of the laws of this state.”    It was sent to the Governor last week ... hope he ultimately signs it.

No word on House Bill 2143 or House Bill 4168 and others nullifying unconstitutional Federal Gun Laws that go against the State Gun Laws.  Apparently they are still in committee. I hope Justice gets them and signs them, which would keep Biden-crap-executive-orders or "laws" from affecting West Virginians.  If passed, we would join several (27) others with or working on similar state constitutional amendments or laws.
