West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced in a release on Friday that his office has affirmed concealed carry recognition with Virginia and six other states.

“Mountaineers are always free, and that includes the freedom to exercise their Second Amendment rights when traveling to other states,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “This is a victory for gun owners and shows respect for concealed carry licenses between states.”

In addition to Virginia, the Attorney General’s Office has also recently affirmed concealed carry reciprocity or recognition with Alabama, Arizona, Nebraska, Nevada, Tennessee and Utah, according to the release.
