Where does it state in WV law that you can carry a pistol openly and loaded. Looking for the actual wording.

I can't find the actual statute saying you can open carry.

Here is a link to a pamphlet about guns in W.V.

I have read that and understand I have the right to own a gun but not to carry it in the open or loaded. In California and a few other states they carry open but the weapon has to be unloaded, which I agrer is stupid as hell, what are you going to do if attacked , throw it at them. I am pro gun just confused that our state laws do not clarify open carry and loaded.

Please dont get me wrong, I believe in the 2A and firmly agree to bear arms, I have several and am still waiting on my CHL from the County, which takes forever. I just wish they would clarify it better and quit with the hassle of us who believe in self defense and our rights. There are many other issues needing attention besides us few, I wish more people would carry......and be proud of what our rights are for.

You can open carry. I have a open carry permit and concealed weapon permit. Of course there are places you can't take a gun in with you, that's common sense. I've opened carried many places. You have to have a permit. Please know gun safety, to many people blame all the guns that are out there. They don't shoot their self. Ppl are careless. I've seen it to many times by ppl who think they know what they are doing. Please keep guns locked away from kids and teenagers. It only takes one time for a lives to change because of carelessness.

Open carry SHOULD require a permit and any business or other institution ought to be able to ban weapons from their establishment, except certified law enforcement officers.

There is no such thing as an open carry permit. Period. Only a concealed weapon permit so that you may conceal your gun on or about your person in the state of West Virginia.

It is legal to open carry in W.V. but you have to read the laws on where they are prohibited. You cannot carry in any State building, Federal building, ANY school property, and there are a few cities that have restrictions including Charleston, South Charleston, Martinsburg, and maybe a few more.

Also, you are not supposed to carry in stores or any privately owned place that have signs up that says 'No Firearms' or something of the like. To be guilty of a misdemeanor on that count though you would have to be asked to leave and refuse.

I support the 2nd Amendment and I have a concealed carry permit.
I really wouldn't recommend open carry. There are many overzealous policeman out there who may give you a hard time about it. It IS legal, but some policeman are ignorant of the law and arguing with a Policeman with a gun strapped to your hip could be a very bad situation.

Just some friendly advice.

Where do you live, I was TOLD that you did not need a permit for open carry in WV. I do keep mine locked up except for one. My kids are all grown and gone. I have had plenty of training over the years, appreciate your concern.
