WV: Second Amendment Supporting AG Gains Maximum Reciprocity

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has done a remarkable job of expanding reciprocity with other states for West Virginia's concealed carry permits. The West Virgina Citizen's Defense League has noted his efforts.  From
Keith Morgan, president of the West Virginia Citizens Defense League, said his group was optimistic the new provisional licenses would be recognized in three to six states, initially believing any expansion beyond that would take years.

“The relentless tenacity with which Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s office attacked this issue, resulting in recognition from 16 states, is quite frankly, astonishing,” Morgan said in a press release. “The number of hours of work required cannot be over stated. That we have official recognition from this many states in just five months, is more than a testament to the commitment of the Attorney General’s office to defending and recovering the recognition of our inherent human right to self-defense.”
The AG's office even provides links to the states for you.  From the AG's office in West Virginia:

States Recognizing West Virginia Concealed Handgun Licenses

* Does not require CHL to carry concealed, but local restrictions vary**Only recognizes licenses issued after June 8, 2012

When it comes to reciprocity, the person in charge of the process makes an enormous difference.  A roll back in reciprocity was temporarily accomplished by the Virginia AG.  The backlash was fast and decisive.  In Minnesota, the Commissioner of Public Safety did her best to minimize a legislative reform aimed at expanding reciprocity.

National reciprocity is coming.  It is too logical and popular to be stopped. The only reason it has not yet passed is President Obama.

If they do not recognize your right to carry they do not recognize your citizenship. your right to carry is a federal right you are a citizen anywhere you are in this country. No state has the right to deny a federal right. denial of your rights is a crime. any state that tries to stop you from exercising your constitutional guaranteed rights should be sued for the max of 15 million dollars. they can not deny you your right to express your opinion and they can not deny you your right to keep and bear arms. each right is an individual right and stands alone from the others all have the same guarantee. I can combine my individual rights as I see fit. I can talk about carrying guns while carrying guns I can refuse to answer police questions without an attorney present. I can refuse to be searched without a warrant. yeah tell that to TSA, well I just stay away from TSA. when the rest of the public has had enough they will refuse too. You only have the rights you exercise. You have to demand they be recognized. TSA would not exist if enough people refused to fly. the definition of criminal assault is touching you without your permission.
