|Governor Jim Justice on Wednesday signed Senate Bill 10, which legalizes carrying a concealed weapon with a permit on a college or university campus in West Virginia.
“I said the second it comes to me, I’ll proudly sign it, so let’s get on with it,” Governor Justice said.
WVMetroNews reported that West Virginia is the 12th state to allow carrying hidden firearms on campus. Advocates said it is a codification of what’s already happening and will plant a seed of doubt in the mind of anybody considering an attack on a college campus in the state.
“Don’t think that just because we don’t have campus carry people can’t bring guns on campus. For crying out loud, the doors are wide open. This is just saying the law-abiding people have a right to carry if they choose to do so,” the Governor said.
