WV AG announces concealed carry reciprocity agreements

December 24th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announces that West Virginia will continue to have full concealed carry handgun reciprocity with Virginia. Citizens’ concealed handgun licenses issued by either state are still recognized by the other.
 
“It is a priority of my office to protect the Second Amendment rights of West Virginians and those who visit our state,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “We have worked hard to preserve this agreement and we hope it remains intact for many years to come.”
 
This week, the Attorney General of Virginia announced the decision to revoke 25 states’ reciprocity agreements, citing that their concealed weapon laws don’t meet Virginia’s standards. However, Virginia has chosen to maintain its reciprocity agreement with West Virginia.
 
This change has no effect on concealed carry permit holders in West Virginia. The two states continue to maintain a mutual reciprocity agreement.
