WV: Support More Freedom on West Virginia’s Country Roads!
The Keep, Bear, and Drive with Arms Act PASSES Senate Judiciary Committee!
When traveling on West Virginia’s “Country Roads,” it is not lawful to have a loaded rifle or shotgun in one’s vehicle.
However, gun owners in the Mountain State are working to change that.
Last week, HB 4048, a bill to legalize loaded rifles and shotguns in a vehicle passed the Senate Judiciary Committee!
Within the committee, the bill was strengthened with more clarity surrounding the legality of having a loaded long gun in one’s vehicle.
Now, to arrive at the Governor’s desk, HB 4048 will need to pass the Senate, with agreement from the House.
So please urge your Senator to support HB 4048 as amended!
