Last person leaving West Virginia is required to turn off the lights. My wife showed me this and I knew that we have a people leaving problem. We do like guns however.
The picture in the article is Huntington, the seat of Cabell County, with a nice view of our Courthouse and the bridge crossing the Ohio River into, Ohio. Cabell has had a run on concealed carry permits, our Sheriff gives classes and has about 20 to 25 per class. Me and the wife included among them.
My wife is from Illinois originally. She was not surprised that people leave it.
Ironically she LEFT Illinois and MOVED to West Virginia. So, there are some skewing of the statistics, eh?
