Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper shows a photo of a concealed weapon law enforcement officers took from a suspect in Kanawha County this week during Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s “veto ceremony” for HB 4145 – the concealed carry legislation. At perhaps West Virginia’s first ceremony ever for a Governor’s veto, Tomblin’ office was filled with law enforcement officers from across state who supported his veto action. This marks the second year in a row Tomblin has vetoed a bill that would have allowed the carrying of a concealed weapon without a permit in West Virginia.
