West Virginia: Campus Carry Bill Moves to Another Committee

Recommended Posts

On February 19th, the West Virginia state House Judiciary Committee voted 12-11 to pass House Bill 2519, the Campus Self-Defense Act.  HB 2519 would ensure that law-abiding adults are not stripped of their right to self-defense when they cross an arbitrary boundary onto a college campus.  It will now go to the House Finance Committee for further consideration.  Please contact committee members and urge them to support HB 2519.  Click the “Take Action” button to contact committee members.

House Bill 2519, sponsored by Delegate Jim Butler (R-14), would allow law-abiding CHL holders to carry on the campus of a state institution of higher education.  Current state law does not prohibit carrying of a defensive firearm on campus, but institution policy could lead to expulsion or termination of employment.  Adults who are officially licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense off-campus should not be prevented from doing so just because they seek higher education.

Again, please use the “Take Action” button above to contact House Finance Committee members and urge them to support HB 2519.
