WV AG Expands Concealed Handgun Recognition in 16 States

October 10th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced an expansion in concealed handgun recognition for 18- to 21-year-olds, while also announcing his office maintained every existing concealed carry agreement between West Virginia and 35 other states.
The announcement follows passage and implementation of House Bill 4145, which allows qualified individuals, age 21 and older, to carry concealed handguns without a permit and for the first time offers a provisional license beginning at age 18.
Sixteen states, all of which recognize West Virginia’s traditional licenses, provided written assurance they will also recognize the state’s provisional licenses. That means 18- to 21-year-old license holders now enjoy the freedom to carry their concealed handgun into 16 states as they travel.
