    In Texas, Express Lanes Through State Capitol Security Checkpoints for Concealed Handgun License Holders

    One of the many issues presented in the 2010 WVCDL Legislative Candidate Surveyis repealing our State Capitol carry ban (Question 16). We also have a separate question (Question 19) that asks whether a candidate will "SUPPORT and vote FOR [font=verdana]legislation to provide that individuals licensed to carry concealed handguns have an absolute right to carry a handgun anywhere on any property or in any building owned or controlled by a state or local government agency, except in 'secure restricted access areas' in which there are adequate security measures (including armed security personnel and mandatory metal detector screenings of all persons who enter the secure area) and free, secure weapon storage for individuals who must disarm while in the secure area."

    Currently, the West Virginia State Capitol is a wide open building with dozens of unsecured, unguarded public entrances. Nevertheless, state law denies our right to self-defense and makes our capitol an inviting target for some criminal, terrorist, or deranged lunatic seeking an easy target.

    At least two states, Virginia and Texas, have gone beyond WVCDL's minimum goal and have State Capitol security programs that feature full, airport-style security measures but instead not only respect the right of concealed handgun license holders to self defense, actually give CHL holders "express lanes" through their respective capitol security screenings.

    Lobbyists getting gun permits to speed access to Capitol

    Most say they don't want to carry gun, just get into statehouse quickly.

    Bill Miller already has his ticket to the express lane. Brad Shields is getting one.

    Like everything else on our agenda for this year, this bill has been dead for 3 months. The 2011 legislative session is 7 months away.
