Why no West Virginia reciprocity?

#1

Post by hirundo82 » Sun Jan 15, 2006 2:25 am

Why doesn't Texas have CHL reciprocity with West Virginia? I ask because, when I visit my parents in Virginia, the nearest free range is in West Virginia (George Washington National Forest). It's not like open carry would be a huge deal--it is a national forest after all, and I probably would OC anyway-- but every additional state helps promote our RKBA.
WV is shall-issue, issues permits at 21, and conducts background checks on applicants. They make reciprocity agreements (VA and KY so far, plus a number of states recognize their permit). The only issue is that permits are issued by the sheriff of each county, but it appears to be relatively standardized as far as I can tell from PDO, and it does not seem to have stopped reciprocity agreements before--Idaho, Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina and more have reciprocity agreements with Texas, and have their permits issued by the county sheriff.
After all, every state counts. Maybe someone can tell me why we do not have reciprocity--I will not make any disparaging comments about inbreeding or the illiteracy of WV licensees here even though I should be obligated to do so as a native Virginian ;-) . Just kidding--I know lots of West Virginians who are very nice people AND know the alphabet. :razz:

But in all seriousness, why not West Virginia? Am I missing something, or has West Virginia simply been overlooked?

The problem is with West Virginia not Texas.

Take a look at Packing.org

There are only two states with reciprocity.
Kentucky and Virginia

Apparently West Virginia is one of thoses states that only has reciprocity with the ajoining states.

AND

They don't even recognize Ohio or Pennsylvania.

I agree on the West-by-God-Virginia recprocity. I have been known to work there occaisionally and must open carry. I do have a Virginia permit if and when WV decides to honor VA non-res. I am not sure if WV has even been approached by the TX AG. I would have thought SC would have been more difficult, but they managed that state. A WV friend told me to "Shoot, go 'head 'n' pack concealed 'cause them troopers dont keer. Just leave it open in the car 'n' just tell'm your frum Texas jist vistin'.

:roll:

I am not a test case.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

On second thought, that might be a bit extreme.

We could just send a few dozen "wild hogs" (sort of a shot across the bow). If that didn't work, then the wretched fire ants!


Oh yeah, gun content: I like 1911's.

I appreciate the thought, but we're pretty "covered up" already.

(gun content): I hope Alabama will soon become reciprocal as well.
