§61-7-1. Legislative findings.
The Legislature finds that the overwhelming support of the
citizens of West Virginia for article three, section twenty-two of
the constitution of this state, commonly known as the "Right to
Keep and Bear Arms Amendment", combined with the obligation of the
state to reasonably regulate the right of persons to keep and bear
arms for self-defense requires the reenactment of this article.
