Guns in Schools West Virginia

Members of the West Virginia House of Delegates’ Education Committee discuss proposed legislation during a meeting at the state Capitol in Charleston, W.Va., on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023. One bill the committee advanced would allow staff in K-12 schools to carry firearms.

A bill that would allow teachers, administrators and support personnel to carry guns in K-12 public schools is advancing in the West Virginia House of Delegates.

The proposal passed the House Education Committee on Wednesday, just one day after the state Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill that would permit the carrying of firearms on college and university campuses. It will now go before the House Judiciary Committee.
