Permitless Concealed Carry Bill Overrides Veto in W.Va.

By Eric Scheiner | March 7, 2016 | 3:34pm EST

The West Virginia Senate has voted to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s (D-W.Va.) veto of the permitless concealed carry bill.

WSAZ-TV reports, the W.Va. Senate voted 23-11 to override the veto on Saturday.

The vote came one day after the house voted to override the bill.

The measure will do away with the state’s current permit and training program to carry a concealed weapon in West Virginia for anyone ages 21 and older.  The bill is now set to become law in 90 days.

Permits are still required for those between the ages of 18-21.
