West Virginia has become the latest state to be a Second Amendment Sanctuary State. The law was signed by the governor of West Virginia and it bans any enforcement on or cooperation with any and all gun bans or other confiscations, federal or otherwise. 

The Law (HB 4098) states:

§2-4-3. Prohibitions.

Notwithstanding any other law, rule or order to the contrary, no agent, department, employee or official of this state or a political subdivision of this state, while acting in their official capacity may:

    (1) Knowingly and willingly participate in any way in the enforcement of any unlawful act, as defined herein, regarding personal firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition; or

    (2) Utilize any assets, funds or funds allocated by any entity to the state, in whole or in part, to engage in any activity that aids in the enforcement or investigation relating to an unlawful act in connection with personal firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition.

§2-4-4. Penalties.

    (a) An “unlawful act” consists of any federal or state act, law, order, rule or regulation which restricts an individual’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms, including any federal or state act, law, order, rule or regulation which bans or effectively bans registers or effectively registers or limits the lawful use of firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition, other than a fully automatic firearm which may be made unlawful by federal law.  Any such “unlawful act” is invalid in this state and may not be recognized in this state, is specifically rejected by the voters of this state and is null, void, and of no effect in this state and includes, but is not limited to, the following:

This comes at a time when Biden is pushing Congress to pass gun control measures that fail to prevent mass shootings and may leave citizens vulnerable to more crimes and killings. Additionally, the Supreme Court will be hearing a gun control case that could have lasting impacts on what the current Administration does.

The case involves gun owners Brandon Koch and Robert Nash, who applied for a license to carry a handgun. Unlike most US states, New York prohibits carrying a loaded handgun outside the home without a carry license.

According to an amicus brief filed with the court in December, Nash, citing a rash of robberies in his neighborhood, requested a license to carry for self-defense after completing an advanced firearm safety training course.

He was denied, with a police officer stating Nash had not shown “proper cause.” Koch was denied on similar grounds.
