WV: SWEET VICTORY! The Keep, Bear, and Drive with Arms Act Signed into Law!

GOA staff, pictured front left, joined our friends at the WVCDL’s Lobby Day in February to advocate for HB 4048.

Gun owners in West Virginia have accomplished a small but powerful victory.

Your efforts and activism for HB 4048 have paid off. This GOA-backed bill passed quickly through the House and Senate, with large majorities voting in the affirmative. And on March 10th, Governor Jim Justice signed into law the WV Keep, Bear, and Drive with Arms Act.

This victory is no doubt due to your hard work and dedication to advocating for freedom. Gun Owners of America also recognizes and appreciates the tireless efforts of our friends at the West Virginia Citizens Defense League.

When HB 4048 officially takes effect on May 24th, Mountaineers will lawfully be able to have a loaded long gun in their vehicle.

Please let Governor Jim Justice know you are grateful for his support of this bill and thank him.
