Bill Passed Allowing Concealed Carry on West Virginia College Campuses

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.8

On Tuesday West Virginia House of Delegates passed an NRA-backed bill 84-13 which will allow concealed carry holders to carry firearms on state colleges and universities.  Republican Delegate Mike Honaker, a former Virginia State Police officer who responded to the 2007 tragic Virginia Tech shooting that killed 32 people, declared, “I know we have to be careful about this issue, but there’s no way that I, as someone who has lived through this and seen it with my own eyes, could forbid another free law-abiding American citizen from carrying a firearm and retaining the ability and the capacity to defend yourself or others, God forbid they ever be put in a position to do it.”
