West Virginia Governor Signs Gun Rights Bill

March 28, 2014

West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has signed a bill that lets people with concealed-carry permits bring guns to city-owned recreational facilities, including swimming pools and after-school centers.

The law requires people to store guns securely out of view and access to others. But they could bring them to sports venues and places that cater to children, including after-school programs. Tomblin said he’ll continue to work with officials to address those concerns.

Both chambers of the Legislature previously approved the measure.

Charleston Mayor Danny Jones has called the proposal “disgraceful” and that would threaten the safety of children.

    Sounds like Charleston Mayor Danny Jones would prefer children to be entirely defenseless.
