West Virginia –  -( 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.

” We the people ” is becoming a thing of the past being destroyed by Obullshit and our younger generation. It’s sad and extremely irritating to watch it. Every four years or so the collage going students seem to think its time for a change so they go way left as they are fed up with Dems and fake Reps !! This pile of maggot crap should have his jaw broke, who in the hell is he to destroy America’s constitution ? To go against THE law of the land? Hey, if your so ignorant that your afraid of firearms,… Read more »


Recall his ass


I live in Nevada, but I called the him and let him know that he should honor his constitutes and the legislature. If the bill passes he should not veto the peoples will. Maybe if he gets enough calls he will listen to reason…then again he is an antigunner liberal…they don’t care about reason or logic, only emotions!


Going against the constitution is treason. Anyone doing so should be treated as a traitor and punished accordingly.

The Gov vetoed this bill last year right at the end of the session. There was no time to do a override. This year is different . as soon as he vetoes it the override will take place. The sad thing is Gov Tomblin , Tim Manchin and US Senator Joe Manchin are anti gun , although Joe hunts and fishes a lot. I guess it’s a power thing for them. Don’t do what I do, do what I say.


we dont need a bunch of judges telling us we have a right to self defense…its written in plain english, the right of the people and shall not be infringed, and well regulated was there way of saying every man be prepared at all times to fight off aggression..

The anti-gun folks should be voted out as that is all they understand.. They don’t give a dam about what the majority of the voters want


Fine, Guv, do your sworn “duty!” And if your “duty” conflicts with the majority consensus, well, give your next door neighbor guv McAuliffe a call and see how he’s dealing with it. Just to be civil, here’s a link that may be beneficial to you in the near future:

It is sickening to see how a bill, honoring our constitutional right to carry, can be shot down (pun intended) by the pen stroke of ONE self-absorbed politician. I’ve never been a democrat…heck, I’ve never been a republican…but have always been a free thinker. I also have never seen such division between political officials over a God given right. I am not fro WV but from TN & we too have a bill introduced to allow constitutional carry. My hope is, that not only will the leaders of our FREE NATION, get their heads wrapped around the notion that our… Read more »

Impeach him if he vetoes Constitutional carry !!! THE CONSTITUTION IS THE HIGHEST LAW OF THE LAND. A veto proves he feels he is above the law and therfore MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. The Supreme Court issued that the 2nd Amendment is a personal rite. What part of SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED does this governor not understand.


Good luck WV with the media and socialist/communists/progressive/libtards against you you will need it.
