Ammoland – Constitutional Carry Passes House
HB4145 passed the House of Delegates today, and is off to the Senate. It survived an onslaught of anti-gun bills proffered by Delegate Skinner (D-Jefferson) and one by Delegate Byrd (D-Kanawha). It also survived a desperate procedural attack by Tim Manchin (D-Marion) who was determined to do his best to kill the bill by any way he could.
Also, some highly rated WVCDL delegates voted against your rights. Some grades are going to be adjusted. Right now, if you visit the candidate ratings section of the website, you’ll find it’s blank.
There’s a reason. Election season is coming, and we remember things.
Tomblin v. Cole
Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has thrown down the gauntlet to Senate President Bill Cole (R-Mercer). As soon as the bill passed the house, the Governor tweeted his intent to veto.
West Virginia, Bill Cole is running for Governor. Now you will get to see how “Governor Cole” would lead our state. If this bill flies through the senate with plenty of time for a veto override, that’s one kind of leadership. If this bill languishes in committee or sees other kinds of delays, that’s another entirely.
Tomblin has laid down the gauntlet. Now we get to see if Senate President Bill Cole will pick it up.
