West Virginia’s legislature enacted a constitutional carry bill on Saturday through a 23-11 Senate vote to override Democratic Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto of the bill.

According to WSAZ-TV, the bill is now set to become law in 90 days. HB 4145 legalizes the concealed carry of firearms by anyone 21 years of age or older who has not had his or her gun rights stripped via a court order. It also sets aside a process for individuals between ages 18-21 to obtain a concealed carry permit.

The W.Va. House also voted 64-33 on Friday to override Governor Tomblin’s veto.

The bill contains an additional provision which allows residents in the state to apply for a $50 tax credit for firearms training classes which Governor Tomblin criticized as “ill-advised and unclear.

West Virginia’s law enforcement officers have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe and helping us in times of need, and it’s disheartening that the members of the Legislature have chosen not to stand with these brave men and women — putting their safety and the safety of West Virginians at risk. It’s unfortunate that the concerns of officers from every law enforcement branch in the state, including the West Virginia State Police and university campus police officers, have been ignored by today’s action,” read a statement by Governor Tomblin according to Breitbart.

W.Va. Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey wrote in a Saturday post on Facebook, “This is a good day for West Virginians and gun owners across the state. I applaud the Legislature for its quick work to override this week’s veto and expand gun rights by enacting constitutional carry.

As the state’s chief legal officer and counsel in charge of criminal matters before the state Supreme Court and federal courts, I know that this legislation will not compromise public safety. This bill not only expands freedom, but will keep our citizens protected,” added Morrisey.
