West Virginia: Constitutional Carry

3/5/16 WSAZ:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- 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.
Governor Tomblin said at the news conference he vetoed the bill in the interest of officers' safety.
In his veto message the governor also expressed concern about the $50 tax credit for those who want to get training. Tomblin called it “ill-advised and unclear.”

It's too dangerous for civilians to carry firearms without training yet encouraging training is "dangerous and unclear"?

Ill advised. Sorry, it's late and I should be asleep.

It has not been a problem in other states.
