The wild west is coming to West Virginia.
The West Virginia House of Representatives has voted to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's veto of a bill that will allow concealed carry without a permit or safety training.
The law, which does away with the permit and training program for people 21 and older who want to carry a concealed weapon, was supported by the National Rifle Association, but opposed by law enforcement across the state.
“West Virginia’s law enforcement officers have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe and helping us in times of need, and it’s disheartening that the members of the Legislature have chosen not to stand with these brave men and women – putting their safety and the safety of West Virginians at risk,” Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said in a statement Saturday.
Republicans say Democrats and civil rights activists are "anti-cop," but they're the ones voting to put guns in the hands of as many people as possible against the wishes of law enforcement.
