Charleston, WV -( Senate President Bill Cole was instrumental in getting Constitutional Carry passed through the legislature in 2016.

He is currently running for Governor of West Virginia, an office that has historically been a choke point for gun rights. Winning the governorship takes a lot of people being involved. This is YOUR opportunity to score a win for gun rights that will last for generations.

Call centers are open, and door knocking times are being set up in the following cities:

  • Martinsburg, Wheeling, Clarksburg, Parkersburg, Charleston, Morgantown, Beckley, Huntingon, and Bluefield.

We would like to see black shirts in each and every call center. Can you offer up a couple of hours to help advance gun rights in West Virginia? If you are available to help, whether it’s for a couple of hours, or more often, please contact Grant Cokeley at (304)549-4197 for more information.

I cannot stress enough how important this election is for your gun rights.  A swing one way or the other will have a significant impact!  If you are thinking that “someone else will handle it”, you are very, very wrong. Please, PLEASE take time to support the legislators that have supported you!

Justice MIA on gun rights!

Having one of the best pro-gun voting records in the WV Legislature, it’s not difficult for us to clearly understand where Bill Cole stands on supporting your gun rights. Throughout the last two legislative sessions, Bill Cole worked directly with WVCDL President and myself to see the passage of HB4145, WVCDL’s Constitutional Carry.

Believe me when I tell you that there were days that I spent hours on the phone with him, his Senate leadership, and legal counsel making HB4145 become a reality. Through our conversations, he had genuine questions and concerns over the safety of the people of West Virginia and their constitutional rights. Throughout the entire process one thing was clear – he understood the importance of West Virginian’s rights to self-protection.

But, where is Jim Justice? The WVCDL sent a survey to Mr. Justice, but it was never returned. He has made absolutely no claim to his position on gun rights. Why, in a time where gun rights are such a hot topic in national politics has he been so quiet?

I have reached out to his camp directly, yet they have not returned our calls. Why would he deliberately evade a conversation with West Virginia’s largest gun rights organization?

I’ll say this; silence is not good in this scenario. If a politician stands in support of your rights, they will gladly tell you so. Most typically, if they’re not – they’ll keep quiet.

But hey, I’m still willing to hear what he has to say. I’ll extend the same offer I’ve given to his close friend Joe Manchin: Give me a time and place and we can chat publicly so your constituents can hear your message.

Jim, I’ve seen your commercials so you should understand this – the ball’s in your court.
