    WV: SB 96 Would Extend Preemption to Non-Firearm Weapons

    West Virginia has a strong preemption statute to insure the state has reasonably uniform laws about the carry and use of firearms by individuals, throughout the state. It is 8-12-5a:

    Limitations upon municipalities' power to restrict the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, transport, sale and storage of certain weapons and ammunition.

    8-12-5a does a pretty good job of limiting the power of local governments to in fringe on the right to keep and bear firearms. But the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution is not limited to firearms.

    Senate Bill 96 has been filed in West Virginia to expand the state preemption protection from firearms to most bearable arms.

    SB 96 should be a no-brainer and would be a big step forward. I hope it succeeds.
