1. Does Pullman movie theater in downtown Huntington allow licensed concealed carry?

2. Is it legal in WV to carry concealed (licensed) in a bar or restaurant that serves alcohol as long as I do not consume at all? Of course if they have a sign up disallowing it, obviously no.

Thank you in advance!

Concealed carry everywhere because morons who want to shoot at innocent people don't follow the ccw laws. You may get into some heat for defending yourself with a firearm but at least you are alive to plead your case.

HPD does a good job, no police force is big enough to protect everyone. If it was it in itself would be the aggressor.

If you think the police can help you, you are stupid. They just right up the report when it's over. They cannot be everywhere when you need them. You must protect yourself and not depend on someone else!

When seconds count, it's good to know that the police are just minutes away.

You can carry in places tha serve alcohol...at least in WV.If it is posted "no firearms", then first off, you should't give them your business. Second, you cannot get arrested for carrying. They can order you to leave. If you don't, then they can get you for trespassing.

Go to http://www.wvcdl.org/

You can find all the answers you need. I'm a member and I suggest anyone in WV who values our 2nd ammenment rights consider joining at least the website (free) or better yet, join the organization.

Open carry laws for WV? Do you need a permit? Im Michigan, no permit required when open carry.

I know a guy that was almost robbed on top of the parking garage at Pullman. He said the guy told him to give him all his money. He pulled his pistol and the guy ran. I carry mine almost always now. Too many pillheads out there robbing

WV is an open carry state. You only need a license to carry concealed.

Very wrong. WV gun laws are VAGUE! Yes, we have 2a rights, but there are some state and local laws that are meant to confuse gun owners and give leverage to law enforcement. WVCDL does great work pointing out all of the issues that threaten our rights.

Please utilize all avenues when researching gun rights, though. It pays to do your research.

Unless they've updated it recently, the attorney general's website and gun laws pamphlet both contain incorrect information. The State Police website also had some bad info the last time I was on the site.

Anyone who owns or carries a gun in WV needs to read the actual code at it's source, found here:

Sempron is right about the WVCDL. They do fantastic work.

People need to be very careful about this. Technically W.V. is an open carry state, but I have heard of overzealous Police Officer's getting very picky about this rule.

For example, if your gun in holstered on your right side and the Police Officer is looking at you from the left side it could be argued that your gun is concealed to him.

It is good for everyone to get a concealed carry permit to be safe. It isn't expensive or difficult to get.

Thanks. Just read it, and it still has incorrect info about where you aren't allowed to carry.
