Constitutional Carry has been passed into law via an override of Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto by the West Virginia Senate.
The W.Va. Senate has voted to override Governor Tomblin’s veto on the conceal carry bill.
In a 23-11 vote Saturday morning, the Senate voted to override the veto.
This comes just a day after the house voted to override the bill.
The bill now becomes law in 90 days.
The bill will do away with the state’s current permit and training program to carry a concealed weapon in West Virginia for anyone ages 21 and older. Permits will be required for those between 18-21.
The fight over this bill has been intense. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg got into the fight in January to advance lies about guns and the bill.

By mid-February, the bill hadpassed the House and was later passed by the Senate.
