Sweeping legislation introduced in West Virginia this year would have allowed concealed carry without a permit almost everywhere in the state. The measure would have also made it a felony for a local government or university official to regulate firearms and would have provided prison time for those found to violate the restriction. In addition, a public agency or official found to have maintained a list of gun owners’ names could have be fined up to five million dollars.  The bill died when legislators failed to act on it prior to the adjournment of the session on March 12th.
