Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Last week, the state of Nevada announced that they had dropped their reciprocal concealed handgun license agreement with West Virginia and will no longer honor concealed carry licenses from the Mountain State.
This unfortunate reversal of opinion was due to a portion of West Virginia statute that has been interpreted by Nevada authorities to allow individuals under the age of 21 but over the age of 18 to obtain a valid concealed handgun license.
This current West Virginia statute is intended to allow law enforcement officers under the age of 21 to carry in the line of duty.
Your NRA is working closely with state officials in West Virginia to remedy any issues, if necessary.
The West Virginia Attorney General has reflected this change in his online reciprocity map which can be found here.
