West Virginia: Committee to Hear Important Preemption Bill Tomorrow

On January 16th, the West Virginia Senate Government Organization Committee will hear Senate Bill 96, which would strengthen West Virginia’s preemption law. Please contact members of the committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 96. 


Senate Bill 96 would prevent municipalities from restricting a number of tools, to include knives and pepper spray, that law-abiding citizens carry with them every day. Preemption legislation is designed to prevent municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws throughout the state that may potentially turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.

Again, please contact members of the committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 96. 

Please stay tuned for NRA-ILA alerts for news on Senate Bill 96 and continuing updates on West Virginia’s 2020 Legislative Session.
