West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced Aug. 5 a concealed carry agreement had been reached between the Mountain State and Nevada.
According to the AG's Office, West Virginia now has full concealed carry handgun reciprocity with Nevada, ensuring citizens' concealed handgun licenses issued by either state will be recognized by the other.
"As Attorney General, it has been a priority to protect the Second Amendment rights of West Virginians and those who visit here," Morrisey said in a news release about the agreement.
The agreement marks 32 states with which West Virginia has full reciprocity or recognition, including neighboring states Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
During the last regular legislative session, lawmakers attempted to pass a bill repealing the need for a concealed carry permit in the Mountain State. The bill passed the full Legislature, but Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed it, and the GOP-led chambers were not able to take the bill up again to override the veto before the session ended.

Morrisey said the mutual recognition agreement is "another positive step for legal gun owners living in West Virginia and Nevada."
The Director of the Nevada Department of Public Safety sent a letter on behalf of the Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval to the West Virginia Attorney General providing the statutory notice required by state code to mutually recognize Nevada's concealed handgun permits.
"West Virginia has a history of loyally defending the Second Amendment, and I am pleased that our state can once again enjoy mutual recognition of concealed handgun licenses with Nevada," Morrisey said. "Many people from West Virginia enjoy traveling to Nevada for work and entertainment activities. This agreement will enable citizens of both states to continue to do so without questions concerning their right to carry a concealed firearm."
West Virginia residents with a valid concealed handgun license may legally carry a concealed handgun in states with full reciprocity agreements, as well as those states whose laws do not require a formal agreement and automatically recognize all valid out-of-state concealed handgun licenses.
The 32 states with agreements with West Virginia are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wyoming.
